Bank of America Charitable Foundation

bank-of-america-2013"Working together, FCLF and Bank of America can make a positive difference in our communities." – John Moskos, Central Florida Market President, Bank of America

For more than a decade, Bank of America and the Bank of America Charitable Foundation have been supporters of the Florida Community Loan Fund and its mission to improve communities in Florida. Bank of America and the Foundation have provided FCLF with generous operating support grants as well as Debt Capital Investments (low interest community development loans) and a Program-Related Investment.

Bank of America Charitable Foundation's most recent operating support grant will make a significant impact in the low-income communities we serve. FCLF's financing - of supportive housing, affordable housing, community facilities and other economic development projects - improves communities throughout Florida. The flexible capital we provide is vital to the success of each project. In addition, these projects create and retain jobs, a key facet of economic development.

"The Florida Community Loan Fund's goals closely mirror Bank of America's commitment to making communities better places to live," said John Moskos, Central Florida Market President, Bank of America. "Working together, FCLF and Bank of America can make a positive difference in our communities."

Bank of America's philanthropy goes beyond financial support for various nonprofits in Central Florida. Orlando-area Bank of America employees volunteer countless hours each year at many charitable organizations, including:
• Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando
• Adult Literacy League of Central Florida
• Feeding Children Everywhere
• Military Warriors Support Foundation
• Welcome Back Veterans
