With an extensive portfolio of partners and a wealth of expertise, Bank of America has successfully leveraged its resources over the years to help communities grow and thrive. From strategic grantmaking to employee volunteer support to key sponsorships, Bank of America continues to play a pivotal role in advancing long-term solutions on both the local and global stage. While much has changed for the better in many communities, Bank of America recognizes that there are still too many individuals who face barriers to economic success. Keeping these barriers in mind, Bank of America’s philanthropic efforts are primarily focused on building pathways to economic mobility and advancing a more diverse and inclusive society. 

Here in Sacramento, Bank of America has been a long-time partner of Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS). The company provides philanthropic support to SFBFS to ensure that all families in Sacramento County have access to the healthy food and the supportive services they need.

“Bank of America is proud to support the impactful work of Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services,” says Bank of America Market President Kathie Sowa. “No one in our community should go hungry or without the services they need in order to thrive.”  

Earlier this year, Bank of America awarded a $15,000 grant to SFBFS’ Refugee Resettlement Services. The funding went towards the purchase of a minivan, which according to SFBFS’ Refugee Resettlement Manager Rocio Gonzalez, “Having a large and reliable minivan has made it so much easier for Refugee Resettlement Services to meet the needs of transportation for our refugee families. From picking them up from the airport to registering children for school, health assessments and all other direct services.” This is just one example of how Bank of America is helping to create a better future for members of the Sacramento community.

In addition to the transportation grant, Bank of America previously awarded several instrumental grants to SFBFS in areas like hunger relief and educational advancement, as well as provided a generous sponsorship for the 2nd annual 2017 Partner Agency Conference. On multiple occasions, SFBFS has also hosted groups of enthusiastic Bank of America employee volunteers.

SFBFS is incredibly grateful for Bank of America’s support. Thanks to the generosity of companies like Bank of America, SFBFS can continue to provide essential services to individuals and families in need.
