MCEE’s mission to help ensure Maryland students leave high school equipped with the economic and personal finance knowledge and decision making skills necessary to succeed in life is only possible thanks to our supporters and sponsors.
Bank of America has been one of those generous supporters of MCEE for nearly 20 years. Through its partnership with MCEE, Bank of America fulfills the goals both organizations share: to make financial lives better, believing that financial education is vital for youth and empowers them to take control of their financial futures.
Bank of America is committed to responsible growth, which includes strengthening and sharing its success with the many communities it serves. That commitment is embedded across Bank of America’s business and philanthropic efforts, aiming to advance the financial mobility of the clients and communities it works with.
Bank of America’s Better Money Habits program educates high school students about smart financial decisions, putting them on a path to financial independence and providing greater economic opportunity. MCEE makes this excellent interactive resource available to teachers as they teach topics like saving, investing, and responsible use of credit. It is infused in MCEE educator professional development experiences - both through workshops and online. Bank of America volunteers also engage with students directly through classroom visits where they share tips and expertise around personal finance.
“Bank of America’s partnership with the Maryland Council on Economic Education expands access to financial education for Maryland students,” said Janet Currie, President, Bank of America Greater Maryland. “MCEE is providing the youth in our community with the tools and resources they need to build their financial know-how, which will help advance economic mobility in the region.”To learn more about Bank of America and their philanthropic work, visit https://about.bankofamerica.com/en/making-an-impact.
