BOA opens Neighborhood Excellence Initiative

Bank of America has begun its sixth annual Neighborhood Excellence Initiative in Philadelphia, which combines leadership development with mission based funding to organizations addressing the most pressing needs of their communities across the country.

The Bank is currently accepting applications in the following two categories:
— Neighborhood Builders: $200,000 in grant funding and leadership training over the course of two years to two local nonprofit organizations working to promote vibrant neighborhoods. Two Neighborhood Builders are chosen in each market.
— Local Heroes: recognition of five community heroes whose achievements and leadership on local issues contributes significantly to neighborhood vitality. Recipients will direct a $5,000 contribution to an eligible nonprofit of their choice and will be honored at a public ceremony.

Applications and nominations for the awards can be found here.  The deadline is June 29, 2009.   For more information, email Deborah O’Brien at deborah.e.o’ or call 267-675-0333.
