How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in St. Louis

We’re committed to supporting our employees’ health and safety and to addressing our local communities’ most critical needs. That’s why we donated $100 to local hunger-relief organizations for each Bank of America employee in the U.S. who let us know they’ve received a booster shot.

Through this effort, our team in St. Louis recently presented Operation Food Search with a check for $95,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Marilyn Bush, President of Bank of America St. Louis, about our role in keeping St. Louis moving forward.

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.

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.
