How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Columbus

We’re committed to supporting our employees’ health and safety and to addressing our local communities’ most critical needs. That’s why we donated $100 to local hunger-relief organizations for each Bank of America employee in the U.S. who let us know they’ve received a booster shot.

Through this effort, our team in Columbus recently presented Mid-Ohio Food Collective with a check for $40,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Let’s build something together

Across the state of Ohio, Bank of America is focused on addressing the needs of our customers, clients, employees and communities. Each member of our team is here to listen and learn what is most important to our clients. And then we try to help them reach their goals. This past year has been extraordinarily challenging, but we continued to open new retail banking locations and hire talented people to serve our customers’ banking needs, all the while supporting our communities. We’ve partnered with nonprofits that help our neighbors most in need. We’ve provided personal protection equipment for first responders, frontline workers and others to ensure our communities’ safety. Workforce development and skill building, notably in communities of color, continues to be one of our primary areas of support, with career-pathway partnerships at local colleges and nonprofit organizations.

The support women entrepreneurs need to flourish

Female-led businesses are growing fast, but still face stiff headwinds getting off the ground. In an effort to direct more capital to U.S.-based Black and Hispanic-Latino entrepreneurs like Breona Baines, a 27-year-old founder and CEO of Kitticcino Charities in Columbus, OH, microlender Kiva and Bank of America have launched a new Bank of America Loan Fund for Women Entrepreneurs at Kiva, funded by a $1 million commitment from the bank, which matches crowd-funded Kiva loans dollar for dollar.
