Bank of America Foundation

Bank of America Foundation is a funding source should be examined by BDPA on both a local and national level.
  1. Does Bank of America have footprint in your chapter city? If so, you should consider local community grant. Working in partnership with community leaders, Bank of America's local market leadership directs the majority of their giving through local grants that address pressing social, economic, and cultural needs of communities across their global footprint. Through their signature philanthropic program, the Neighborhood Excellence Initiative®, the bank enhances nonprofits' ability to serve more individuals and families in need and develop nonprofit visionaries, local heroes, and students as community leaders of today and tomorrow.

  2. Does your chapter or nonprofit organization have Bank of America associates in it? If so, we suggest that you follow-up with them on the matching gifts and volunteer grant program at Bank of America. Bank of America supports their associates who give their time, energy and financial resources to create better neighborhoods in the many communities we serve. Through generous Matching Gifts and Volunteer Grants programs, they encourage associates to direct charitable giving from the bank to organizations they support financially or through volunteerism. Each year, Team Bank of America volunteers donate more than 650,000 hours to help meet critical community needs across their global footprint.

Any Bank of America associates reading this blog post? We would love to hear from you!
