Taking action to support our communities, clients and teammates

Now as always, our commitment to help strengthen the communities we serve is unwavering. We’re partnering with local leaders and organizations to address critical needs, and to advance racial equality and economic opportunity. We’re collaborating with companies and working with skill-building partners to help people succeed in today’s and tomorrow’s economy. And we’re doing our part to help people stay healthy — including investing in benefits and resources for our employees who serve our clients in their communities.

Let’s build something together

We are focused on serving those in need by providing funding and volunteer support to local nonprofits addressing basic needs, workforce development, education and community revitalization across the state. By partnering with nonprofits, we're providing financial literacy and adult learning programs, with much needed resources—like Chromebooks and Wi-Fi hotspots—to give them the tools they need. We're also helping to foster multicultural education and community engagement for our children, with a special emphasis on STEM skills. When it comes to businesses, the changing climate has disproportionately impacted low-income communities. We're providing solutions by aiding and financing green jobs to fill the gaps in rural regions undergoing economic transitions. And, to battle the extreme racial disparity of people affected by the health crisis, Bank of America took action, providing funds for masks, stocking food pantries and providing other supplies.

Delivering skills and computers to those in need

When online instruction was the only option, many students without a home computer were faced with even more obstacles in pursuing their education. For Portland Adult Education, it became clear that there was an urgent need to get the necessary technology into the hands of its students—many of whom are immigrants enrolled in English as a second language and college- and job-readiness courses. We partnered with Friends of Portland Education to help keep students online and on-track.

Scaling up support amidst the pandemic

For Preble Street, a Portland food pantry and shelter, the coronavirus has not only required additional support for those facing food and housing insecurity, but also additional methods to safeguard its staff, volunteers, and participants.

We remain committed to supporting you with your financial needs during the health crisis. Of course, nothing is more important than your health and safety, and we have taken multiple steps to minimize health risks, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention. These steps we have taken in our financial centers include enhancing the daily cleaning procedures, implementing plastic screens and distancing markers, following local restrictions on the number of clients that can enter a financial center at one time, and requiring our employees to wear masks. In addition, we are requiring clients wear masks when visiting our financial centers.
