Bank of America Donates $725K to Valley Nonprofits
The grants will focus on removing barriers to economic success and increasing access to shelter and education needed to establish financial stability.
“So many of us are just one life event away from being homeless or needing to depend on basic services such as food banks or shelters, said Arizona market president for Bank of America Benito Almanza. “But through strategic philanthropic investments into Maricopa county’s nonprofit network – such as Year Up, United Food Bank and Valley of the Sun United Way – we can deploy capital and resourced to help meet fundamental needs to get people back on the path to economic stability.”
