Kim Wilkerson | President, Bank of America South Carolina

Hear from Kim Wilkerson, President of Bank of America South Carolina, about our role in keeping South Carolina moving forward.

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.

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.
