How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Worcester

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 Worcester recently presented Worcester County Food Bank with a check for $25,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Edwin Shea, President of Bank of America Worcester, about our role in keeping Worcester moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Bank of America is committed to using our connections and resources to make Worcester a great place to live and work. When the health crisis struck, we stepped up to lead a rapid response, helping to provide essential PPE and becoming one of the first funders of a nonprofit group that brought local organizations together. We also provided grants to nonprofit healthcare centers for new computers and testing equipment. To ensure a dynamic future, we support small business initiatives, especially for minority business owners. One program pairs entrepreneurs with larger companies and holds pitch contests where applicants can win further grants. And because we want to encourage the growth of well-paid jobs, we connect with nonprofits and employers to support re-skilling, focusing on underserved communities. When it comes to affordable housing, we work with local leaders to augment the many initiatives we already have in place.

The spirit of innovation rekindled

As the birthplace of the smiley face, barbed wire, the liquid-fuel rocket, the monkey wrench and far more, the central Massachusetts city of Worcester and its environs have a storied history of manufacturing and innovation. Now the nonprofit Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) hopes to build on that legacy by supporting a more diverse group of entrepreneurs than ever before.

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.

Digital tools so impressive, you just can’t stop banking.
