Let’s build something together

Bank of America has long-standing roots within the diverse communities of Fresno, Merced and Visalia. To drive economic opportunity in our neighborhoods, we have committed to supporting workforce development and job placement initiatives for the Central Valley’s underserved populations. This includes ensuring members of our communities receive the education, technical training and resources they need to successfully secure sustainable employment.

We also partner with local organizations that guide Black, Hispanic and female entrepreneurs as well as small business owners from low- and moderate-income communities.

Inroads to employment

According to Brookings Institute, even in pre-pandemic Fresno, 45% of its residents struggled to make ends meet. Yet, there are 34,000 unfilled "good and promising" jobs in high growth industries in the area, suggesting there’s a misalignment between workers’ skills, training and access and open jobs. In 2019, local civic leaders launched Fresno DRIVE (Developing the Region’s Inclusive and Vibrant Economy), a 10-year, $4.2 billion economic development plan to address these issues. The plan was formed by a 300-person steering committee representing more than 150 local nonprofits, community leaders, neighborhoods, institutions and businesses.

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.
