Allen Staff | President, Bank of America Orange County
Hear from Allen Staff, President of Bank of America Orange County, about our role in keeping Orange County moving forward.
While we've all been affected by the pandemic, the nonprofit sector continues to experience unprecedented demand for critical services to support vulnerable populations across diverse communities. Bank of America recognizes the responsibility we have to serve and strengthen our region however we can.
We are committed to helping our communities thrive - dedicating our resources to address the issues that matter most in each community where we live and work.
The majority of Americans don’t have a written financial plan. But starting one now is easier than ever. With Bank of America, you get impressive digital tools to help you save, local experts any time you need, and the power to make your money go further.
We're committed to supporting our employees' health and safety and to addressing our local communities' most critical needs. That's why we've donated to local hunger-relief organizations on behalf of each employee who received a COVID-19 vaccine or booster and/or a flu shot.* In addition, employees are doubling the impact of their personal donations to fight hunger with our matching gifts program.
Through this effort, our team in Orange County recently presented Community Action Partnership’s OC Food Bank with a check for $100,000. We're proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
We’re proud to support the unique needs of our heroes as they transition to civilian life and careers by offering online resources on financial education, expanded financial center access near military installations, and intentional hiring practices.Learn more about our support

Despite being one of America’s wealthiest enclaves, Orange County is also a place of stark inequality, with tens of thousands of young people out of school and unemployed, lacking job skills, and often in trouble with the law. Hope Builders, a non-profit that trains young adults for jobs, calls these individuals “opportunity youth.” Now, with the national economy expanding, preparing them for employment opportunities is all the more important.
Faced with a surge in need brought on by financial hardships related to the coronavirus crisis, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County needed to bring in more support. With the help of a $250,000 grant from the bank, they’re bringing on more support and launching creative programs to help serve the community.
At Bank of America, we believe in the power of the arts to help economies thrive, educate and enrich societies, and create greater cultural understanding. That’s why we’re helping the arts flourish in communities across the globe.Explore our commitment
