The Bank of Amer­ica Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion has awarded more than $500,000 in grants to 44 non­prof­its through­out South Florida.

These non­prof­its are fo­cused on pro­vid­ing fi­nan­cial ed­u­ca­tion and job skills to low- and mid­dle-in­come in­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies as well as sup­port for small busi­nesses. The grants will im­pact 13,949 in­di­vid­u­als in Broward County.

Among the non­prof­its re­ceiv­ing the grants are: ARC Broward; Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County; Metro-Broward Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion; Ju­nior Achieve­ment of South Florida; Take Stock in Chil­dren of Broward County; PACE Cen­ter for Girls; Jack and Jill Chil­dren’s Cen­ter; The Broward Ed­u­ca­tion Foun­da­tion; Big Broth­ers Big Sis­ters of Broward; HANDY; and Broward SCORE Chap­ter.

“These non­prof­its con­nect the un­em­ployed and un­der­em­ployed to the train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion they need to land bet­ter pay­ing jobs,” said Lori Chevy, Broward County mar­ket pres­i­dent for Bank of Amer­ica. “With­out these ser­vices a big part of our com­mu­nity would con­tinue to strug­gle and re­main be­low the poverty line.”
