Let’s build something together
Bank of America has a long-standing history of helping St. Louis thrive, going back to 1847, when our predecessor bank, Boatmen’s Savings Institution, was founded.
Today, our support extends deep across the region alongside corporate, private and nonprofit partners, removing barriers to economic success. Right now, our primary focus is investing in programs to advance racial equality and economic opportunity through education and training. We're coming together to identify employers who are equally committed to creating pathways that lead to sustainable employment.
We’re proud to partner with schools such as St. Louis Community College and Ranken Technical College that offer programs and curriculums that lead to jobs in healthcare and manufacturing, as well as high-demand jobs in construction, mechanics and plumbing.
Also on the jobs front, we're helping to attract and retain minority-owned businesses as well as providing support to entrepreneurs in our growing startup industry. Safe, stable and affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization is a critical need in our low-income neighborhoods, and we’re offering innovative solutions and working with nonprofits that not only address immediate housing needs but also focus on providing solutions for the long run.
