El Pasoans, still reeling from the impacts of COVID-19, have faced yet another year of unprecedented challenges ranging from unemployment and food insecurity to healthcare and emergency childcare services.
Nonprofit organizations have stepped up to help fill these gaps where they can, and Bank of America remains committed to addressing immediate and persisting needs in our community by contributing more than $750,000 to support our nonprofit partners here in El Paso.
“El Paso’s nonprofits play an increasingly important role in supporting our community in the face of ongoing challenges, but their continued optimism and activism despite adversity is an example for us all, and only further reinforces Bank of America’s commitment to support the missions of these organizations,” said Kristi Marcum, President, Bank of America El Paso. “We truly believe these outstanding nonprofit partners are changing lives here in El Paso, and we look forward to working alongside them as we move into 2022.”
This year’s grant funding has gone towards advancing economic mobility, improving childcare programs, combating hunger, improving access to housing and healthcare services, supporting the arts, and offering mentorship and education resources that advance financial literacy and community development.
