Charitable Contributions

As part of the M&T corporate family, Wilmington Trust is proud to introduce the M&T Charitable Foundation. This Foundation strives to strengthen our communities by providing support for a diverse range of civic, cultural, health, and human service organizations.
Healthy communities are the foundation of successful businesses. Through grants and in-kind services, the M&T Charitable Foundation works in partnership with nonprofit organizations that focus on improving the quality of life for our clients, staff members, and neighbors. Our decisions are made locally, by the people who know their communities best.

The M&T Charitable Foundation offers financial support and resources to many types of organizations, including, but not limited to, those that support:
  • Arts/culture
  • Civic affairs
  • Healthcare
  • Human services
  • Education
