Barry University was one of the recipients of The Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s 2016 Workforce Development and Education grants. The grant is part of more than $525,000 the bank is investing in support of workforce development and education programs across South Florida.
Bank of America’s grant helps fund Barry University programs that serve the student population.
For years, Bank of America has invested in South Florida’s workforce development and education infrastructure, helping individuals and families build better money habits and find pathways out of poverty. In addition, the grant provides small businesses with technical assistance and support to help them thrive.
“With this grant, we were be able to provide additional resources to support our fundraising initiatives, which creates more scholarship opportunities for our students,” said Barry University President Sister Linda Bevilacqua, OP, PhD. "Our longstanding partnership with Bank of America is a great example of how corporate citizens can help make a positive impact in our community.”
