It’s rewarding to be a part of making a positive impact in the lives of our clients, our community and our teammates.

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.

Treating students as professionals from day one

To help promising younger students get a jump on their careers and lessen the financial burden of a college education, Ranken Technical College has partnered with St. Louis public schools to offer a dual-enrollment program. With this Early College initiative, low- and middle-income high school students can begin Ranken classes for free during their senior year, putting them on track to earn an associate degree and be ready for the workforce a year after graduation.

Advancing Racial Equality and Economic Opportunity

The need for real progress on racial and economic inequality in the United States has been accentuated by the impact of the coronavirus on communities of color, and amplified by acts of injustice. We all have a role to play in helping move communities forward – an understanding that forms the foundation of Bank of America’s long-standing commitment to the people and communities it serves. And they’re at the heart of the bank’s $1.25 billion commitment over the next five years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity.

Of course, nothing is more important than your health and safety, and we have taken multiple steps to minimize health risks, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention. 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. In addition, we are requiring clients wear masks when visiting our financial centers.
