As part of our continued work to advance racial equality and economic opportunity, the Bank of America Neighborhood Builders: Racial Equality Award honors individuals who’ve made extraordinary contributions to break down racial barriers and create economic opportunities for Black, Hispanic-Latino, Asian American and Native American people across the nation. See here to learn about the inaugural honorees of this award.
The Racial Equality Award is an extension of Bank of America’s signature philanthropic program, Neighborhood Builders®, which focuses on economic mobility and nonprofit leadership. Awardees have the opportunity to direct a $200,000 grant to a nonprofit of their choice, and the selected organizations can participate in Bank of America’s year-long Neighborhood Builders Leadership Program, which provides strategic growth and development trainings to establish organizations for long-term success.
