Bank of America is recognized around the world for its longstanding stewardship of the arts, and for more than 25 years has provided key support to the Smithsonian. Sharing the belief that cultural identity is a powerful tool in preserving communities—both domestic and global--Bank of America is now partnering with the Smithsonian in its efforts to protect cultural heritage threatened by natural and manmade disasters. As Lead Corporate Sponsor of the Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative, Bank of America is helping the Smithsonian to provide timely emergency response and critical resources to more areas around the world than ever before.
"Bank of America stands by the passionate and brave men and women who work, sometimes at personal risk, to protect cherished treasures for future generations. The Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative is helping enable necessary work in the U.S. and around the world, and we are proud to support it,” says Brian Moynihan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bank of America.
We salute Bank of America for its championship and support of this important work. Together we are helping to preserve the richness and diversity of the world’s cultures today and for generations to come.
