At Bank of America, we are committed to strengthening local communities by collaborating with nonprofits that are making Oregon better. We partner with them financially, giving more than $5 million annually, and our local employees donate more than 16,000 volunteer hours each year.
Those investments are about building healthier neighborhoods and supporting families-in-need, which we are proud to be a part of.
Bank of America is pleased to sponsor KGW-TV’s “Get Ahead” campaign, since we know that removing barriers and providing resources to those seeking training, jobs and financial independence is important. Together with our workforce development nonprofit partners, we’re committed to the well-being of our community, and to keeping Oregon moving forward.

For over 50 years, Concorde has been serving the Portland community by preparing students for careers in the health care field. Our students have set very immediate goals for starting careers. The practical hands-on learning needed to attain their goals is foremost in their minds. We satisfy their expectations by modeling our faculty, facilities, equipment, and curriculum after the healthcare field they will enter. We know that the ultimate judge of their preparation will be their future employers. Employers expect our students to have more than just knowledge and technical skills.
