In 2015, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation contributed to World Food Program USA (WFP USA)'s Emergency Response Fund, delivering critical support for WFP's crisis relief efforts, including assistance to humanitarian response operations in Syria, immediate emergency relief in Nepal and the Ebola epidemic. 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the bank's partnership with WFP USA. Through cash grants and employee matching gifts, the bank's foundation has helped WFP deliver millions of meals to hungry men, women and children across the globe. The Foundation recently committed to assist WFP in addressing long-term issues created by the current refugee crisis. This funding will support asset building programs designed to help those forced to flee their homes become more self-sufficient and resilient members of healthy, local economies.
