    to whom

    Hi everyone
    'This documentary was produced with the resources of the foundation...to whom we thanked for the support and trust'

    is it correct to use whom in this sentence or do you know a more suitable word?
    thank you

    Re: to whom

    In my view, it is perfectly allright to use whom in the above senten.

    P.S. I am not a teacher of English. Just someone who loves the language.

    Well, no, it isn't. One doesn't thank to someone. One thanks them.
    The sentence needs to be transformed in some way, as David has done.
