Scotiabank’s Bright Future program focuses on responding to the needs of local communities around the world at a grassroots level. The program brings together the passion of our employees, the insight of our partners and the spirit of our communities. In 2012, that passion, spirit and insight were recognized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Greater Toronto Chapter, when Scotiabank received the Philanthropy Award and was named Outstanding Corporation.

The annual awards honour transformational leadership in philanthropy. The awards recognize individuals or groups who demonstrate outstanding commitment to the community and empower others to meet challenges and overcome obstacles.

Scotiabank contributes to a wide range of community causes worldwide. As well, Scotiabankers volunteer countless hours to bring about change in their local communities.
