Our unwavering commitment to communities

We believe we are stronger when we work together. That’s why our commitment to help strengthen our communities remains steadfast. To support the safety and health of those most at-risk, we’re partnering with local leaders and organizations to distribute millions of PPE masks. And we’re investing $1 billion over four years to advance racial equality and economic opportunity, building on work we’ve had underway for many years.

Our commitment supports partners and organizations that make an impact in communities of color. We’re partnering with local healthcare systems and nonprofits to increase access to healthcare services and healthy food. We’re accelerating our investment in affordable housing development in neighborhoods of color, working side-by-side with nonprofits and community leaders to help revitalize neighborhoods. We’re connecting workers to new skills to create pathways to better jobs. And we’re continuing to help power small businesses through access to capital and support for programs that drive minority entrepreneurship.

As Greater Washington, D.C.’s local market president, I am privileged to lead 2500 teammates in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Our team delivers for clients, employees, and communities from Fredericksburg, VA to Frederick, MD. Through the Board of Trade; the Washington, D.C. Economic Club; and partnerships with many non-profit leaders, the 2500-strong Bank of America team in the DMV is committed to helping drive economic opportunity across the Greater Washington, D.C. market. Partnering with Howard University Hospital to fund free Covid testing and working with Capital Area Asset Builders to support workforce development and education allow us to all come together as neighbors and partners toward a better DMV.
