It is FIT’s honor to recognize Bank of America in our Donor Spotlight
This quarter's Donor Spotlight goes to our esteemed partner Bank of America. In 2020, Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow was proud to be named an awardee of Bank of America's prestigious Neighborhood Builders grant. Bank of America and FIT have similar goals as we both aim to address issues fundamental to economic mobility. This includes our work in providing specialized job training for careers to benefit Southern Nevada's workforce development.
As an awardee, FIT received a $200,000 grant, a year of leadership training to cover topics ranging from strategic storytelling to human capital management, as well as access to a network of peer organizations across the U.S., and the opportunity to access capital to expand our impact.
We are incredibly grateful to Bank of America for the honor of being named one of this year's Neighborhood Builders and we look forward to launching pilot programs that we anticipate will have an immeasurable positive impact on our community's continued economic recovery.
In addition to Neighborhood Builders, Bank of America has worked with FIT on various workforce development efforts in addition to the bank being a member of its Board of Directors.
Congratulations and thank you to Bank of America.
