How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Fresno-Visalia

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 Fresno-Visalia recently presented Central California Food Bank with a check for $25,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Mark Riley, President of Bank of America Fresno-Visalia, about our role in keeping Fresno-Visalia moving forward.

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.

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.
