Let’s build something together

As a diverse community that's largely rooted in the agriculture and hospitality industries, we were hit hard when the health crisis began here in Monterey Bay. We focused our relief funding on healthcare and food insecurities, stocking food banks and funding a COVID-19 ward that provided additional rooms and equipment. For our largely Hispanic and Latino community, we're focused on supporting programs that provide upskilling to create career pipelines in hospitality and agriculture as well as technology and design. We're proud to support a great nonprofit program that helps high school graduates learn how to build websites and produce videos—skills that were in demand for businesses who hadn't established an online presence before the health crisis hit. This program better positions businesses to withstand future challenges, plus it's cultivating exciting careers for the next generation of our workforce.

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.

Fueling economic growth through jobs and skills development

The job skills gap has disproportionately affected Black and Latino individuals – and this disparity has been compounded by the coronavirus. To help address this gap, Bank of America works with local nonprofits, employers and broader networks across the country to support skills-training programs that meet the specific workforce demands of local communities. The result is a diverse talent pipeline for employers – and a clear path to employment for individuals.
