ByROI-NJ Staff(New Jersey)

Looking to help drive economic opportunity and upward mobility, Bank of America announced Tuesday that it will be making more than $4.2 million in grants to 75 New Jersey nonprofits.

The grants, announced during “Giving Tuesday,” will be used by groups that focus on basic needs, affordable housing, workforce development and small business and economic revitalization, Bank of America New Jersey President Alberto Garofalo said.

“As part of our commitment to sustainable growth, helping local organizations address immediate short- and long-term needs has been key on our path of economic recovery,” he said. “By supporting New Jersey’s incredible network of nonprofits, Bank of America is providing philanthropic capital to help advance economic and social progress, establishing pathways to success and stability for our community.”

Vicky Hernandez, executive director of Ironbound Community Corp., said the support from Bank of America will enable her group to deepen its work and impact around ensuring an equitable neighborhood and city through eviction prevention and affordable housing preservation.

“Building community by investing in our children and families is key to the work we do at Ironbound Community Corp.,” she said. “As we continue this important work, we are grateful for Bank of America’s support and are eager to expand on our programs to uplift the community, not uproot.”
