We are very pleased to announce that Samaritan House was one of sixty nonprofits from across the country to be named as a recipient of the 2013 Bank of America Neighborhood Builders Award!
Every year Bank of America selects exceptional and high- performing nonprofit organizations from across the county to benefit from the Neighborhood Builders Program, a part of its Neighborhood Excellence Initiative. As a Neighborhood Builder, Samaritan House will receive $200,000 in unrestricted funding over the next two years and leadership training for emerging leaders (including our wonderful and talented Grant Manager, Amy Hsieh) in the agency. Support from the Bank of America Neighborhood Builders Program will be used to improve the agency’s data systems and evaluation processes to better determine our service impacts over time.
“Nonprofits provide much needed services in Silicon Valley, but too often lack the opportunity to invest in their own long-term growth and development,” said Raquel Gonzalez, Bank of America’s Silicon Valley Market President. “By recognizing Samaritan House as a Neighborhood Builder, we know that they are poised to make an even greater impact in our community.”
We thank Bank of America for being a strong partner in helping provide effective and impactful social services in San Mateo County!
