PR Newswire


BUFFALO, N.Y., Nov. 2, 2017 -- M&T Bank announced the five finalists in its first-ever Understanding What's Important Business Challenge, an initiative that celebrates local businesses and the organizations they support to make a difference in their communities.

Hundreds took the time to share their stories and now we're asking our neighbors to vote for their favorite finalist organization to win a $10,000 gift of support," said Eric Feldstein, M&T Bank senior vice president and manager of business banking.  "The well-being of our communities depends on the hard work and commitment of our families, friends and neighbors, and we're honored to recognize and support their tireless efforts."
