How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Ventura-Santa Barbara

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 Ventura-Santa Barbara recently presented Food Share of Ventura County and Food Bank of Santa Barbara County with checks totaling $200,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Let’s build something together

Bank of America is proud to serve our communities within the picturesque Ventura-Santa Barbara market along the American Riviera. To advance racial equality and economic opportunity throughout our service areas, we partner with Hispanic-serving educational institutions and community development organizations, connecting essential services, affordable housing and meaningful employment to our neighbors in need.

To support our small business community, we provide sponsorship and mentorship to organizations, which empower female entrepreneurs through funding and financial literacy training programs. Our teammates also drive local impact through volunteerism, and we support community partners that offer culturally relevant approaches to developing young leaders.

Providing resources needed to prosper

Since its start in 1991, Women’s Economic Ventures (WEV) has provided more than $7 million in small business loans and offered training and advisory services to more than 19,000 women and minority small business owners along California’s central coast. As the pandemic has made the need for its help more urgent, WEV is expanding its program to include coaching, low-interest capital and grants.

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.
