Let’s build something together

Bank of America supports job creation, small business engagement, eliminating hunger and expanding access to affordable housing in central Virginia.

Through funding and volunteerism, the Charlottesville team works to address the needs of individuals and families facing food insecurity and homelessness. In collaboration with local nonprofits and both academic and business partners, teammates assist our neighbors with financial literacy training, skills development programming and, ultimately, pathways to sustainable careers. Volunteers work with nonprofits to provide mentorship, financial education and funding to local small business entrepreneurs. Through funding and volunteer support for affordable housing needs and neighborhood revitalization initiatives, we make a difference in our community.

Network2Work@PVCC Connects Employers with Skilled Employees

Because it has become increasingly evident that full-time employment does not always cover a family’s basic needs, Piedmont Valley Community College started Network2Work@PVCC, which helps low-income Charlottesville-area residents land the kind of jobs that can set them on the path to upward mobility. Providing resources and training to make jobseekers more marketable — while helping to remove barriers like affordable childcare and reliable transportation — neighborhood connectors then reach out to motivated and skilled candidates to match them with local employers in fields such as transportation, construction, health care and hospitality.

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.
