United Way of Fresno County was honored to receive a grant in the amount of $25,000 from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, for support of UWFC's work in the Income Building Block. The grant will go towards strengthening the capacity of the SparkPoint Center, as well as other critical areas of need.
"In response to the many challenges facing our communities, we are focusing our philanthropic support on areas vital to advancing local economies," said Rudy Medina, Bank of America Market President. "The bank's $175,000 investment in local nonprofits that help individuals and families regain financial stability through housing and other community development initiatives is one way we're working to stabilize and advance in the Central Valley California region."
Bank of America has been a longtime local supporter of United Way of Fresno County. Nationally, they have a great partnership with United Way Worldwide.
UWFC President & CEO, R. Michael Alexander said that without the support of great partners, United Way of Fresno County would not exist. "We thank Bank of America for their continued support of our initiatives. They are a great example of organizations in our community who LIVE UNITED."
Bank of America has dedicated local staff to teach financial education, help clients with budgeting and money management,
as well as help during volunteer focused events.
Thank You Bank of America for your wonderful partnership!
