Scotiabank Community Program

The Scotiabank Community Program unites all of our charitable efforts under one umbrella, allowing us to have a stronger impact on a cause we care about: helping children.

The Scotiabank Community Program is the foundation of Scotiabank's philanthropic efforts in Guyana and incorporates both corporate giving and employee volunteerism. Our goal is to give hope to youth by supporting initiatives in education, sports, health, arts and culture, and the environment.

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