Bank of America has expanded its support for USS Midway Museum programs beyond its sponsorship of Navy Pier marketing programs to include exclusive presenting sponsorship of Midway’s Legacy Week, and Lieutenant Sponsorship of the Midway American Patriot Award Gala.
A long-time sponsor of Midway programs, Bank of America currently underwrites the design and production of banners celebrating Midway, naval aviation, and all those who serve that adorn the light poles on Navy Pier. New banners hanging now spotlight female aviators as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the women in naval aviation. Bank of America will also sponsor Legacy Week, Midway’s Memorial Day weekend celebration, and support Midway’s No Child Left Ashore STEM education scholarship fund through Lieutenant Sponsorship of the Gala.
“Our longtime partnership with the USS Midway Museum’s programs is a proud extension of the bank’s more than 100 years of serving veterans and active-duty service members, and 80 years of financing San Diego’s defense and aerospace industries,” said Rick Bregman, president of Bank of America San Diego. “San Diego is uniquely prosperous due in large part to its military presence and history, and the Midway brings this rich history to life for the community.”
Bank of America supports the military community in numerous ways, including hiring more than 15,000 service members in less than ten years to help address the unique challenges military personnel face in finding civilian employment after service. Today, 15 percent of all Bank of America’s newly hired employees in North America are veterans. Providing tailored benefits to support the evolving needs of active duty, reservists, and military spouse employees, Bank of America continuously ranks as a top employer for military.
In addition to this milestone, Bank of America helps the transition from military to civilian life by supporting a variety of veteran nonprofit organizations, offering free financial education tailored for the unique needs and resources of active-duty service members and veterans, and has donated more than 2,600 homes to veterans.
Honoring its commitment to connect people to what matters most through lending, investing and giving, Bank of America has become an ardent supporter of Midway education, our San Diego community, and the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
