Atlanta is your home. It’s ours, too.

We are committed to partnering to address the local issues that matter most, advancing racial equality and economic opportunity, and helping our community thrive.

Our unwavering commitment to communities

We believe we are stronger when we work together. That’s why our commitment to help strengthen our communities remains steadfast. To support the safety and health of those most at-risk, we’re partnering with local leaders and organizations to distribute millions of PPE masks. And we’re investing $1 billion over four years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity, building on work we’ve had underway for many years.

Our commitment supports partners and organizations that make an impact in communities of color. We’re partnering with local healthcare systems and nonprofits to increase access to healthcare services and healthy food. We’re accelerating our investment in affordable housing development in neighborhoods of color, working side-by-side with nonprofits and community leaders to help revitalize neighborhoods. We’re connecting workers to new skills to create pathways to better jobs. And we’re continuing to help power small businesses through access to capital and support for programs that drive minority entrepreneurship.

Let’s build something together

As Atlanta’s local market president, I am proud of the work we have done to help people succeed by offering financial know-how, stimulating economic opportunity, and addressing racial inequalities. I oversee the bank’s work connecting individuals, families, and businesses to resources that make their financial lives better from Atlanta to Gainesville. I’m also charged with helping strengthen economic opportunity and build strong communities through social responsibility efforts, which as we know are absolutely essential to Atlanta at this time. These initiatives, like funding critical medical supplies, partnering with Grove Park Foundation, supporting affordable housing, workforce development and education allow us to all come together as neighbors and partners toward a better Atlanta. We will continue to reinforce our commitment in helping the Atlanta community thrive through investments in affordable housing, education, career skills training, health and support to small businesses – especially for communities of color that have experienced the greatest impact from the health crisis.

30 Atlanta volunteers send lifesaving supplies to Somalia

More than 300 villages in Somalia will receive critical assistance thanks, in part, to the work of Atlanta-based Bank of America employees. The Dr. Hawa Abdi Foundation of Somalia asked us for six volunteers to sort and pack healthcare supplies and other goods donated by the Emory University hospital. Over 30 of our teammates volunteered to sort and pack 2,300 pounds of supplies that will now save many Somalian lives over the next year.

Grady Memorial: Staying True to the People it Serves

The coronavirus has changed how Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital can deliver care – from mask requirements to digital medical appointments. Hear from Robert Janson, M.D., chief medical officer and chief of staff on how the hospital is handling today’s (and tomorrow’s) challenges, in part with a $500,000 Bank of America grant slated to help local communities adapt to the pandemic.

Helping DeKalb small businesses survive tough times
