Matthew Elliott | President, Bank of America Detroit
Hear from Matthew Elliott, President of Bank of America Detroit, about our role in keeping Detroit moving forward.
My team and I are committed to addressing racial and economic disparities by funding programs that empower citizens and break down barriers. I'm very fortunate to work for a company that commits the resources needed to really make an impact.
We are committed to helping our communities thrive - dedicating our resources to address the issues that matter most in each community where we live and work.
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 Detroit recently presented Forgotten Harvest and Gleaners Community Food Bank with checks totaling $100,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
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.
