Bank of America Donates $1.3 Million to Local Nonprofits

Bank of America recently announced more than $1.3 million in economic mobility grants that will be distributed to nearly 60 Delaware nonprofits. The focus of the grants is on employment and hunger.

“We recognize that addressing immediate basic needs as well as connecting individuals to long-term success through skills-building and jobs are critical to achieving greater economic mobility in our community,” said Chip Rossi, Delaware market president, Bank of America.

Bank of America has partnered primarily with three nonprofits:

Connections Community Support Programs (CCSP) with their program “Connect to Work”, which employs veterans and individuals with substance use disorders and re-entering offenders.

CCSP is a provider of Vocational Assessment, Direct Placement, On-the-Job Training, and specific training in culinary arts and janitorial services for the Delaware Department of Labor Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. Connections has a long history of providing vocational and pre-vocational services to adults with disabilities, helping more than 500 individuals get and keep employment over the last 3 years.

The Delaware Council on Economic Education will use the funding for financial literacy education for students in Delaware and related training for their teachers.

The Food Bank of Delaware will use the funding for their community nutrition outreach truck, which continues to meet the needs of under-served populations across the state through a variety of direct nutrition distribution programs.

Bank of America presented the Food Bank with a $75,000 donation to help support day-to-day operations of the truck. This is in addition to a $150,000 investment from the company last year to support the purchase of the truck, allowing the Food Bank to deliver food to families in rural areas or those living in a city where convenient access to a grocery store can be a challenge.
