Helping Create & Sustain Vibrant Communities

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 $2.5 million annually, and our local employees donate more than 10,000 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 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.
