Hear from Lawrence Di Rita, President of Bank of America Washington, D.C., about our role in keeping Washington, D.C. moving forward.
Bank of America has been a leader in making financial lives better in the DMV for more than 200 years.
We are committed to helping our communities thrive - dedicating our resources to address the issues that matter most in each community where we live and work.
The majority of Americans don’t have a written financial plan. But starting one now is easier than ever. With Bank of America, you get impressive digital tools to help you save, local experts any time you need, and the power to make your money go further.
We're committed to supporting our employees' health and safety and to addressing our local communities' most critical needs. That's why we've donated to local hunger-relief organizations on behalf of each employee who received a COVID-19 vaccine or booster and/or a flu shot.* In addition, employees are doubling the impact of their personal donations to fight hunger with our matching gifts program.
Through this effort, our team in Greater Washington, D.C. recently presented Kitchen of Purpose with a check for $80,000. We're proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.
We’re proud to support the unique needs of our heroes as they transition to civilian life and careers by offering online resources on financial education, expanded financial center access near military installations, and intentional hiring practices.Learn more about our support

To date, BGV has held more than 45 pitch events in a dozen cities and raised more than $1 million for 600-plus participants.
