Let’s build something together

Bank of America has served clients in Kentucky for more than 40 years. Through sponsorship and volunteerism, we have supported nonprofit partners that provide access to food security and affordable housing to our neighbors in need.  With new financial centers in Kentucky, we are bringing expanded retail banking, lending and small business services to our local clients, along with investing and personalized financial guidance from Merrill.

This active involvement in the communities we serve also includes lending to and supporting the growth of local businesses, as well as funding regional scholarship programs.
