Robert G. Wilmers, M&T Bank CEO, says, 'We're not doing it for the ranking.'
M&T Bank Corp. is one of the nation's top corporate donors, giving out more cash compared to its revenues than such giants as Coca-Cola Co., drugmakers Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer, and Wal-Mart Stores, according to a survey by Business Week.
The Buffalo-based bank, known locally for its support for Westminster Community School and cultural institutions, came in as the 8th-biggest charitable donor for 2003 in the weekly newsmagazine's ranking of most generous companies. The ranking, published in the Nov. 29 issue, is based on cash gifts as a percentage of revenues. "
