Scotiabank Community Program

The Scotiabank Community Program unites all of our charitable efforts under one program, allowing us to be more strategic and focused, and helping us make a bigger impact toward a cause we care about: helping children.

The Scotiabank Community Program in The Bahamas is the foundation of Scotiabank's philanthropic efforts in the country and incorporates both corporate giving and employee volunteerism. Our goal is to give hope to local youth by supporting education, arts and culture, and the environment, as well as by helping the underprivileged and abused.

Scotiabank's community involvement programs are an important element of Scotiabank Group's commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.
