Supporting local arts and culture

At M&T Bank, we’re proud to support the diverse arts and culture initiatives that make our communities so unique.

They say life imitates art, and we at M&T believe this to be true. The meaningful work of cultural organizations is vital to the prosperity of our communities. We’re proud of the commitments we’ve made and the relationships we’ve developed with our partner organizations. And we encourage you to get to know them too. 


These regional sponsorships illustrate some of the hundreds of ways we support arts and culture across our communities. Throughout the year, we will highlight various organizations – so be sure to check back often to meet all our incredible partners.
