Bank of America will celebrate its 2019 Neighborhood Builders®, nonprofits who are advancing economic mobility and providing leadership to solve community challenges. Each Neighborhood Builders awardee will receive a two-year, $200,000 grant, a year of leadership training for the executive director and an emerging leader, an opportunity to access capital, and access to a network of peer organizations across the U.S. It is one of the nation’s largest philanthropic investments in nonprofit leadership, with $240 million invested over more than 15 years.
In addition to celebrating this year’s Neighborhood Builders, Bank of America’s area nonprofit partners will join together in support of Operation Food Search (OFS) by packing 1,000 backpacks for community youth. Backpacks will include tuna, carrots, a whole grain snack, and cereal. This menu was developed by OFS’s Child and Family Nutrition Team to mitigate food shortages during the week so that kids have consistent nourishment outside of school.
The agenda for the celebration also includes a fireside chat with St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jordan Hicks along with former pitcher and current Cardinals broadcaster Rick Horton.
