Bank of America Charitable Foundation
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to meet community needs. Funding is intended for programs and activities that strengthen communities by supporting affordable housing, small businesses, and neighborhood revitalization. For a list of eligible states and local markets, see Geographic Focus, below.
The current environment has underscored the importance of safe, decent housing for an individual’s overall well-being, including health, educational success and future employment opportunities. Yet for many, access to affordable housing has become further out of reach while others struggle with the possibility of eviction, foreclosure and homelessness. That’s why the Foundation supports the efforts of organizations working to preserve, and increase access to a mix of affordable housing options as well as other essential assistance.
Small Businesses play an important role in the overall health of the nation’s economy. In response to the challenges small business owners face in today’s environment, Bank of America is supporting nonprofits assisting entrepreneurs especially minority and indigenous owned, as they address their short term needs and strengthen their overall recovery.
Vibrant communities are places where individuals can thrive and succeed and have the opportunity to live and work with safe, decent housing, transportation to jobs, strong business corridors and thriving arts and culture districts. The Foundation supports local and regional revitalization efforts, taking a holistic approach to building inclusive communities, creating economic opportunity and livable neighborhoods.
