Invitation to Attend the Bank of America Information Session on our 2019 Philanthropic Strategy & RFP Process

Dear Community Partner:

At Bank of America, we're guided by a common purpose to help make financial lives better, through the power of every connection. We're delivering on this through responsible growth with a focus on our environmental, social and governance (ESG) leadership. As part of this work, we develop strong partnerships with nonprofit organizations addressing issues fundamental to economic mobility, bringing our collective networks and expertise as part of our commitment to help fuel economic and social progress in low- and moderate-income communities.

Our philanthropic investments help move individuals and communities forward through workforce development and education, community development and basic needs. We partner with nonprofits that are removing barriers to economic success for vulnerable populations, including youth, working families, and those with barriers to employment, including the formerly incarcerated. We're committed to advancing a more diverse and inclusive society by expanding opportunities and supporting equitable solutions that gives communities the power to grow and prosper. Through our philanthropic efforts and our employee volunteers, we're helping create thriving economies and a better future for us all.

Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.

The First Opportunity Zones Playbook is Here

We're excited to share the first installment of the LISC Opportunity Zones Playbook series, “Navigating the Opportunity Zones: Community Partners.” This playbook is geared to the people and organizations committed to community revitalization and shared prosperity for all residents.
