Hear from Trevia Chatman, President of Bank of America Memphis, about our role in keeping Memphis moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Bank of America partners with academic, corporate, government and nonprofit leaders to drive economic advancement in Memphis. We support high-performing organizations, which provide innovation capital, mentorship and skills development programs that prepare our neighbors for the marketplace of the future.

In this hub of entrepreneurship, we help small business owners thrive through expanded access to funding, financial education and technical assistance. We also support initiatives that advance neighborhood revitalization and challenge systemic barriers to home ownership. We are dedicated to leading racial equality initiatives – including convening conversations regarding diversity and inclusion within Memphis’ business ecosystem.

More inclusive training: the code for success

In Memphis, a six-month bootcamp called Code School helps young adults from underserved communities get the coding education they need to qualify for careers in software development. Begun in July 2018 by CodeCrew, a local technology education nonprofit, this full-time program teaches the skills necessary to become a software developer, then partners with local employers looking for tech talent — emphasizing support of African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos and women and girls.

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.
