A CIBC employee volunteering for the Hills Food Pantry

Algonquin Lake in the Hills Food Pantry

We are proud to recognize our employee volunteers each year for their outstanding work in the community. Recently, we honored Gerry Guibeault, who organizes a golf fundraiser for the Algonquin Lake in the Hills Food Pantry. The food pantry serves over 300 families, homeless and military personnel each month. Thanks to his efforts with the golf outing, Gerry and his team have raised $140,000 over the last 13 years for the food pantry.

Junior Achievement

For over a decade, we’ve partnered with Junior Achievement (JA) to help students learn basic financial concepts through a wide variety of initiatives, including board involvement, classroom instruction and employee fundraisers. Several times a year, CIBC employees volunteer with Junior Achievement at JA in a Day partner schools, where they spend the day teaching grade-specific programs that include topics such as net worth, savings and city life.

All-Team Volunteer Day

Every year, over 500 CIBC employees across the country participate in our All-Team Volunteer Day. Our teams visit over 3,000 students in K-8 classrooms in their communities to teach the Money Savvy program, a personal finance curriculum tailored to students at every age.
