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.’

Another boost in the fight against hunger in San Francisco-East Bay

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 San Francisco-East Bay recently presented Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano with a check for $135,000. We're proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Gioia McCarthy, President of Bank of America San Francisco-East Bay, about our role in keeping San Francisco-East Bay moving forward.

Let’s build something together

As President of Bank of America San Francisco-East Bay, 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.

Bolstering efforts of local Bay Area nonprofits

To help local entrepreneurs and small businesses navigate the impacts of COVID-19, two Bay Area nonprofits are working to advance economic empowerment and support underserved entrepreneurs. The two nonprofits, Pacific Community Ventures and Prospera, were named the 2021 Bank of America Neighborhood Builders® awardees for their work in the East Bay and Greater Bay Area communities, connecting businesses to the support and services they need to succeed.

Racial equality and economic opportunity

At Bank of America, we’re committed to addressing the root causes of inequality through a company-wide commitment to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity across diverse communities. We are doing this by building upon our existing efforts and leveraging our strengths: creating more affordable housing and expanding home ownership, increasing lending and support to minority-owned small businesses, championing job training and career readiness and addressing health disparities like access to care. We also know we can’t solve these challenges alone, so we’re partnering with other corporations, local nonprofits and community leaders across the country who share our vision for creating meaningful change.
