Let’s build something together

As Knoxville continues to grow and attract new business activity, Bank of America is focused on driving economic mobility throughout its neighborhoods. This commitment encompasses charitable giving, collaboration with economic development partners and providing financial literacy education that together build pathways to enriching employment opportunities for members of our local communities.

Our dedication to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity is also expressed through our support of organizations, which provide culturally sensitive access to affordable housing, food security and mental health resources for underserved communities within our service areas.

Bridging the gap to higher wages

For the past 15 years, Centro Hispano de East Tennessee has opened its doors to Hispanic-Latino families in Knoxville, where many face challenges ranging from education gaps to childcare and transportation needs. More than just a community center, Centro Hispano seeks to empower the city’s Hispanic-Latino population through education, workforce development, youth programs and small business assistance — and its mission has never been more vital. Over the next five years, Knoxville’s Hispanic-Latino population is expected to grow by more than 20%.

We continue to focus on working collaboratively across sectors to advance opportunities that will create real impact in the lives of individuals and for the communities we serve, using the past to inform our perspective and understanding as we tackle barriers within our communities.
