Another boost in the fight against hunger in Central New York

We're committed to supporting our employees' health and safety and to addressing our local communities' most critical needs. That's why we've donated to local hunger-relief organizations on behalf of each employee who received a COVID-19 vaccine or booster and/or a flu shot.* In addition, employees are doubling the impact of their personal donations to fight hunger with our matching gifts program.

Through this effort, our team in Central New York recently presented Food Bank of Central New York with a check for $25,000. We're proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Michael Brunner, President of Bank of America Central New York, about our role in keeping Central New York moving forward.

Let’s build something together

We're tackling the socioeconomic, educational and health challenges in our communities head on with relevant and timely solutions. The safety of our teammates and neighbors is top priority. We were quick to respond to the health crisis, delivering masks and supplies to areas that needed them the most. And we've worked alongside nonprofits to create programs to help the homeless, particularly children who should never have to worry about not having a roof over their heads. We continue to help open new doors for low-income families by providing affordable housing opportunities. Additionally, through a generous grant, we're helping Mohawk Valley Health System to build a new hospital in Utica that will provide long-term opportunities for economic mobility as well as advances in health care.

Racial equality and economic opportunity

At Bank of America, we’re committed to addressing the root causes of inequality through a company-wide commitment to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity across diverse communities. We are doing this by building upon our existing efforts and leveraging our strengths: creating more affordable housing and expanding home ownership, increasing lending and support to minority-owned small businesses, championing job training and career readiness and addressing health disparities like access to care. We also know we can’t solve these challenges alone, so we’re partnering with other corporations, local nonprofits and community leaders across the country who share our vision for creating meaningful change.

Fueling economic growth through jobs and skills development

The job skills gap has disproportionately affected Black and Latino individuals – and this disparity has been compounded by the coronavirus. To help address this gap, Bank of America works with local nonprofits, employers and broader networks across the country to support skills-training programs that meet the specific workforce demands of local communities. The result is a diverse talent pipeline for employers – and a clear path to employment for individuals.
