I believe making connections in the community is the most important investment we've made. Working together with our partners has provided a lens into what our schools and neighborhoods really need and is helping us break down barriers and drive progress.

Let’s build something together

Here in New Hampshire, we've continued to provide consistent support for nonprofits and delivered even more during the health crisis. We helped distribute millions of masks, hand sanitizers, and gloves while keeping most of our financial centers open. As part of Bank of America’s broader jobs initiative, we're funding programs in our minority communities that help break the cycle of poverty by providing access to career pipelines in banking and teaching. Other programs support immigrants by offering job-skills resources, help with resume building, and teaching English as a second language. Alongside private sector and nonprofit partners, we've identified and supplied in-need K-12 students with 500 computers—loaded with software—and continue to expand the reach. We’re also funding programs that help teachers get accredited at the college level so they can offer classes that enable high school students to earn credits toward higher education.

Lowering the cost of higher education

With Running Start, an innovative partnership between local high schools and the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH), students who thought a college education would be too expensive now have a means to achieve their ambitions. Courses taught by high school teachers with college-level teaching credentials are provided at a fraction of the cost of traditional college courses—and some are even free.

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.

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.
