“Through CIBC Miracle Day, my family is a direct recipient of people coming together towards one cause — helping kids. It feels good to be able to pursue a personal passion in my professional life.”
— Elliot Scherer, Capital Markets, CIBC, Toronto
“Every year I wear a cape as part of the Capes for Kids campaign to raise funds for Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, a CIBC Miracle Day partner.
For me it’s personal, because Holland Bloorview is more than just a hospital to me and my family, it’s a place where my son and family go to get the support we need. Spending time there and being part of the community is really special to us.
Through CIBC Miracle Day, my family is a direct recipient of people coming together towards one cause. My son continues to get the support he needs, and I can continue to give back towards a cause close to my heart. It feels good to be able to pursue a personal passion in my professional life.”
CIBC Miracle Day
CIBC Miracle Day takes place each year on the first Wednesday in December. Our CIBC Capital Markets team and CIBC Wood Gundy Investment Advisors give back to our communities by donating their fees and commissions to children’s charities.
This annual tradition of donating trading fees for kids-in-need has grown into one of the largest single-day corporate fundraising events in support of children's charities.
CIBC Miracle Day has raised over $95 million in Canada and $246 million globally since 1984. Proceeds from the day make miracles happen for kids-in-need 365 days a year.
CIBC Miracle Day is an example of the magic that can happen when our employees come together to rally around a common goal, common good.
