Bank of America Accepting Applications for Neighborhood

Deadline: Various

Bank of America ( http://www.bankofamerica.com/ ) is committed to the economic strength and stability of the communities in which it does business.

The Neighborhood Excellence Initiative, Bank of America's signa- ture philanthropic program, focuses on developing relationships with and investing in strong nonprofits/charitable organizations with great leaders. The program offers leadership training and general operating support for growing nonprofits, recognizes a community's local heroes, and embraces the next generation of student leaders. The program is offered in Bank of America's forty-four markets. This year, the program goes international with a new market in London, England.

The Neighborhood Excellence Initiative invites applications for the following program components:

Neighborhood Builders: Provides grants of $200,000 each (or local market currency equivalent) for operating support to two nonprofit/charitable organizations in each of Bank of America's forty-four markets. Recipients also benefit from specially designed leadership development programs. To be considered for the Neighborhood Builders program, applicant organizations must be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or be registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (for the London market), and must be based and serve communities in any of the forty-four Neighborhood Excellence Initiative markets.

The Local Heroes will be recognized at a public awards ceremony in their local community. There are no specific eligibility requirements to nominate a Local Hero; however, successful nominations will demonstrate how a nominee made a special and significant impact on individuals, families, or the community at large; inspired others to volunteer for community service; and has been a catalyst for new visions, understanding, and change in a community.
