Bank of America Dallas Market President Jennifer Chandler and Fort Worth Market President Mike Pavell may not look like Mr. and Mrs. Claus, but they have provided an early Christmas gift to a bunch of North Texas nonprofits in the amount of $920,000.
As part of Bank of America’s $1 billion, four-year commitment to advance economic, social and racial equity, a select group of local nonprofits received a total of $405,000 of the $920,000, with Big Thought snagging one award and area Boys And Girls Clubs divvying up another, like this:
- Big Thought ($100,000) for its Dallas City of Learning program.
- Boys And Girls Club Of Collin County ($55,000) to fund its Academic Success program.
- Boys And Girls Club Of Greater Dallas ($150,000) for its Collegiate STEPS program.
- Boys And Girls Club Of Greater Tarrant County ($100,000) to upgrade its technology at club location
According to Jennifer, “Our nonprofit partners are vital in ensuring the next generation of North Texas Leaders are empowered and have education and job opportunities. These investments in organizations like Boys And Girls Club and Big Thought at important demonstrations of how Bank of America is working to advance a more equitable DFW economy by helping to remove longstanding barriers and create greater access to future economic opportunities.”
The remaining $515,000 will be distributed to 24 other organizations to “promote workforce development and advance economic mobility.”
