PROVIDING PATHWAYS TO FINANCIAL PROSPERITY

The National Bankers Community Alliance, a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit, will provide programs and services to support Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs) and the communities they serve to help close the racial wealth gap.

We know that minority-owned banks are at the center of serving communities that are traditionally overlooked and excluded by the mainstream banking system. These communities of color deserve equitable access to education, services, and products that strengthen their financial goals and growth.

"Centuries of neglect have created a lack of trust between our communities and the traditional banking system, which has undoubtedly forced our banks to bear the brunt of responsibility for making financial services accessible. The National Bankers Association is proud to announce the Alliance as our next step toward elevating the impact of minority-owned banks in the communities they serve."

- Robert E. James II, NBA Chairman
