The health crisis hasn’t created the gaps in our society; it’s widened them. We’re grateful for organizations that have a long history of serving residents in need and are responding to the increased challenges so many members of our community are facing in this moment.

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 Charlotte’s local market president, I get to help our clients, employees and community thrive in our region. I oversee the bank’s work connecting individuals, families, and businesses to resources that make their financial lives better from Iredell County, N.C. to Chester County, S.C. I’m also charged with helping strengthen economic opportunity through social responsibility efforts, which as we know are absolutely essential to the Charlotte market at this time. These initiatives, like supporting workforce development, education and affordable housing, allow us to all come together as neighbors and partners toward a better Charlotte market.
