How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Detroit

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.

Hear from Matthew Elliott, President of Bank of America Detroit, about our role in keeping Detroit moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Detroit is home to more than manufacturing; our streets are lined with award-winning restaurants, small businesses and a booming arts and culture district. The health crisis hit Detroit early and hard, particularly within the City itself, a low-to-moderate income area with a large minority population. Bank of America took action by moving quickly to address critical needs, starting with food insecurity. We funded an innovative program that utilized empty airline kitchens to produce meals for those in need—and also helped save jobs in the airline industry. We helped develop mobile COVID-19 testing units to overcome public transit challenges and reach our most vulnerable citizens. On the jobs front, we funded the startup of an organization that is the new front door for Detroit's burgeoning small business sector, and continued to fund Detroit’s entrepreneurship hub, empowering startups and local businesses to accelerate inclusive economic development. Lastly, we support a wonderful citywide summer jobs program that provides meaningful employment opportunities for Detroit youth. Workforce development will continue to be our focus in the upcoming months and years.

Closing the digital divide, opening new opportunities

For young people, the digital divide can be a daunting barrier to entry for careers in IT. That’s why NPower Michigan offers Tech Fundamentals, an education and job placement program for young people ages 18-25 and military veterans that provides the skills training and career pathways needed to enter and succeed in this growing field. A grant from Bank of America, part of the bank’s $1.25 billion, five-year commitment to advance racial equality and economic opportunity will help NPower Michigan continue to offer Tech Fundamentals and support the expansion of the program.

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.

The only way you get to #1 is by putting clients first.

World's Best Bank is a huge honor, but we couldn't have earned it - or others we've received - without our 200,000+ teammates and millions of clients around the globe.

Together, we're demonstrating that we deliver great results for clients and also help address important priorities in the communities we serve. It's amazing what we have the power to do when we work together.
