LEADERSHIP & SERVICE

Neighborhood Builders®

Since 2004, we've trained nearly 1,200 nonprofit directors and emerging leaders in the United States.

Helping Develop Nonprofit Leaders

Local nonprofit organizations are critical in creating economically and socially vibrant communities. They deliver exceptional services and opportunities to thousands of neighborhoods across the country. Whether it's an organization connecting the underserved with affordable housing, a community center providing job training programs, or a food bank serving the area's homeless, nonprofit organizations extend a helping hand to those who need it most.

Bank of America's Neighborhood Builders® program helps address local challenges in community development, workforce development and education, and other basic human services. The program, an invitation only process for nonprofits addressing these three areas, provides high-performing nonprofits with $200,000 in unrestricted grant funding and leadership development for their executive directors and emerging leaders. We developed the program in response to the need for strong leaders to face the challenges of local communities.

We're proud to say the program has become the nation's largest philanthropic investment in nonprofit leadership development. We have recognized nearly 700 organizations and provided training to nearly 1,200 nonprofit leaders. More than 95% of 2011 Neighborhood Builders® nonprofits are serving critical needs in the areas of health and human services, education and community development.
