As the economy begins to improve across San Francisco and the East Bay, it’s important to help our most vulnerable populations such as seniors, disabled adults and the formerly homeless be able to afford to still call the Bay Area ‘home.’

San Francisco is your home. It’s ours, too.

We are committed to partnering to address the local issues that matter most, advancing racial equality and economic opportunity, and helping our community thrive.

Our unwavering commitment to communities

We believe we are stronger when we work together. That’s why our commitment to help strengthen our communities remains steadfast. To support the safety and health of those most at-risk, we’re partnering with local leaders and organizations to distribute millions of PPE masks. And we’re investing $1 billion over four years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity, building on work we’ve had underway for many years.

Our commitment supports partners and organizations that make an impact in communities of color. We’re partnering with local healthcare systems and nonprofits to increase access to healthcare services and healthy food. We’re accelerating our investment in affordable housing development in neighborhoods of color, working side-by-side with nonprofits and community leaders to help revitalize neighborhoods. We’re connecting workers to new skills to create pathways to better jobs. And we’re continuing to help power small businesses through access to capital and support for programs that drive minority entrepreneurship.

Let’s build something together

As the San Francisco-East Bay local market president, I get to partner with organizations such as Working Solutions to help Small Businesses in the Bay Area. I oversee the bank’s work connecting individuals, families, and businesses to resources that make their financial lives better from San Francisco to the East Bay. I’m also charged with helping strengthen economic opportunity and build strong communities through social responsibility efforts, which as we know are absolutely essential to San Francisco and the East Bay at this time. These initiatives, like funding critical mental health support, partnering with San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, and supporting workforce development and education allow us to all come together as neighbors and partners toward a better San Francisco and the East Bay.

Helping Bay Area hospitals during the pandemic

Our entire region benefitted by a partnership between The Valley Medical Center Foundation and the Silicon Valley Leadership Group that coordinated distributing medical supplies like ventilators and personal protective equipment to where it was needed most. To help local hospitals scale up their aid efforts, Bank of America provided a $550,000 grant as part of its national pledge to support nonprofits responding to the pandemic.

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.
