Neighborhood Builders®

Through grants and training, nonprofit organizations and leaders have the power to strengthen their communities.

Through the Neighborhood Builders® program we deploy capital and build cross-sector partnerships to advance nonprofit leaders addressing economic mobility and social progress issues in the communities we serve. Since 2004, we’ve invested more than $220 million in 49 communities – partnering with more than 1,000 nonprofits and more than 2,000 nonprofit leaders by delivering flexible funding, leadership development and a network of peers.

Fifteen years on, Neighborhood Builders® is one of the nation’s largest philanthropic investments in nonprofit leadership development. To join the conversation and learn more about how the program powers nonprofits to build thriving communities, use #NeighborhoodBuilders on Twitter and tag us at @BofA_News.
