USAA announced it has committed $20 million to nearly 50 nonprofit organizations as part of its three-year, $50 million commitment made in late 2020 to advance diversity, equity and inclusion.

“Over the past three years, we’ve had the opportunity to support nearly 70 nonprofit organizations in local communities and nationally,” said Lindsey O’Neill, USAA chief communications and corporate responsibility officer. “Each of these nonprofits is doing incredible work by providing underserved individuals opportunities to achieve educational and employment success to help build solid financial futures.”

The three-year, $50 million commitment aims to advance economic mobility by closing gaps across education, employment and entrepreneurship, ultimately reducing the wealth-building gap. Nonprofit organizations that have received funding through the multi-year commitment are committed to delivering:

  • Knowledge and expertise for 3,000 underrepresented and veteran-owned small businesses through technical assistance and mentorship by the end of 2023.
