Partnering for impact

We’re guided by a common purpose to help make financial lives better, through the power of every connection. We deliver on this through responsible growth, including a focus on growing in a sustainable manner through our environmental, social and governance leadership.

The communities we serve across the globe must be successful in order for our company to grow in a sustainable manner. That’s why we develop strong partnerships with nonprofit organizations serving critical needs, bringing our collective networks and expertise to help communities grow and thrive.

Technology and coding

Partnerships with nonprofit organizations like Girls Who Code reflect our commitment to prepare young women for jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Employees across our organization – particularly those in our Global Technology & Operations team – dedicate their time and expertise to teach computing and coding skills in their communities.

Some recent examples of employee involvement:
 

  • In Southern California, technology teams coached 36 female students from two Los Angeles public schools on coding and other computer-related activities.
  • In Bangalore and Mumbai, employees mentored students in a skill-based volunteering workshop on technology careers.
  • In our Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region, employee volunteers worked with Code First: Girls, a nonprofit organization that encourages women to pursue technology and entrepreneurship.
  • In Asia Pacific, GT&O’s Code for Change campaigns have helped create app solutions to improve communication efficiency between midwives conducting health checks in rural villages, and created fun, educational games for children to learn about nutrition.

Habitat for Humanity

We have partnered with Habitat for Humanity for over 30 years, honoring a shared goal to connect working families to affordable housing and build thriving communities. Our partnership includes more than $85 million in philanthropic funding for Habitat’s work around the world, as well as our employee volunteer efforts in local markets and regions.

Employees serve on the board of Habitat affiliates, lead home build initiatives, and provide financial literacy training for future homeowners. As a company, we recently held our fifth Global Build Week. Nearly 2,400 employees in more than 100 communities across seven countries rolled up their sleeves alongside working families and community partners to create a safe, decent place to live for those in need.

(RED)

We partner with (RED) to make a critical difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS through the virtual elimination of HIV transmission from mother to child.

Funds generated by (RED) for the Global Fund are fighting AIDS in eight African countries — Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia — and are used to support HIV/AIDS grants which provide treatment, testing and prevention, and care services, with a focus on ending mother-to-child transmission of HIV and achieving an AIDS-free generation.

Our partnership with (RED) allows our employees — all over the world — an opportunity to engage with a cause that has a true global impact. We offer employee contribution matching, provide exclusive (RED) products for purchase at our Bank of America store, and facilitate employee volunteerism at local AIDS-related events and charities. It’s all part of our seven-year, $20 million commitment to support (RED)’s fight against AIDS through 2020.
