Let’s build something together

We are a capital city as well as a college town here in Columbia, so we spend a lot of time interacting with local government and community leaders, exchanging ideas and information to make a positive impact together. We also work closely with our other market leaders across South Carolina to have a consistent statewide voice. Workforce development has been our focus for decades, and we continue to support programs that help up-skill and provide training to connect South Carolinians to high-demand jobs and at increased wages. We’re working hard to support small businesses as they recover, with special programs including access to capital. We also work with several nonprofit partners supporting youth employment and leadership development opportunities across the state. Providing students from all backgrounds with early work experience helps them reach their full potential and move on to successful careers. With mental health issues on the rise, we’ve increased our grants to provide people with services they need to live happy and healthy lives.

Uncovering Critical Needs in One South Carolina Community

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Senior Resources, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping seniors stay healthy and independent, has seen a huge increase in the need for their services. With financial support from Bank of America, they were able to respond to this growing need by ensuring that home-bound seniors remain connected—with others and with necessary supplies —amidst stay-at-home orders.

Advancing Racial Equality and Economic Opportunity

The need for real progress on racial and economic inequality in the United States has been accentuated by the impact of the coronavirus on communities of color, and amplified by acts of injustice. We all have a role to play in helping move communities forward – an understanding that forms the foundation of Bank of America’s long-standing commitment to the people and communities it serves. And they’re at the heart of the bank’s $1.25 billion commitment over the next five years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity.

These steps we have taken in our financial centers include enhancing the daily cleaning procedures, implementing plastic screens and distancing markers, following local restrictions on the number of clients that can enter a financial center at one time, and requiring our employees to wear masks. In addition, we are requiring clients wear masks when visiting our financial centers.
