One in a Million Award recipient: Discovery Bank
Where they are multiplying good: Greenwood, DE
How they are multiplying good: Discover Bank recognized a unexpected opportunity to help support nonprofits in DE during the COVID-19 crisis. Although, they are not a lender for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Discover Bank was able to partner with the Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), a national nonprofit, to help facilitate over .2M of PPP loans to DE nonprofits during the economic shut down. In collaboration with the DE Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement (DANA) and Markevis Gideon's NERDiT Now Foundation, Discover Bank provided ,000 worth of computers/technology to local non-profits so they could supply their staff with laptops allowing them to transition to working remotely. This enabled the nonprofits to continue to provide critical health, education and social services to people throughout DE.
