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.
