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.’

Gioia McCarthy | President, Bank of America San Francisco-East Bay

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.

Giving more kids a chance to attend college

Since its founding in 1981, the mission of the nonprofit 10,000 Degrees has been to help Bay Area students from low-income backgrounds enroll in and graduate from college. Operating in seven counties, including Marin, Sonoma and most recently Napa, 10,000 Degrees is focused on helping students from low-income families. Through partnerships with more than 20 local high schools in Marin and Sonoma counties, 10,000 Degrees guides high-school seniors and their families through the college selection, application and financial aid process, for both four-year and community colleges.
