National Bank and National Bank Financial Team Up to Support the Corporation de l'Ile Ronde de Beauceville

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 12, 2005) - National Bank and National Bank Financial are proud to be donating $30,000 to the Corporation de l'Ile Ronde de Beauceville as part of its 2005-2009 fundraising campaign.

The Corporation's mission is to rally citizens and businesses to help it turn Ile Ronde de Beauceville into a popular, recreational site that will draw tourists to the Beauce region. The Corporation's next challenge is to facilitate access to the island notably by setting up a welcome area, which will feature a tourist kiosk sporting National Bank's colours.

The island will regularly play host to a variety of family, community, cultural and sports events.

In 2004, the Bank and its subsidiaries, through corporate donations, sponsorships, in-branch fundraising activities and various benefit events, gave $12 million to hundreds of Canadian education, health care, cultural and community organizations.

More information on the many causes and projects the Bank supports as part of its commitment to the communities it serves can be found in the Bank's Social Responsibility Report on its website at
