Operation HOPE thankfully has a growing list of committed partners to our work. I am particularly thankful when leaders step up not only with financial resources, but with leadership commitments from the very top. This has been the case with Ajay Banga, CEO, and Shawn Miles, a Group Head at MasterCard.
They were there with us a decade ago, and then with the founding investment into HOPE Inside @Ebenezer, our flagship operation located within the Martin Luther King Sr Community Resource Complex in Atlanta, and now with the new, multi-year commitment detailed below, in broad support of our growing Project 5117 work on the ground, nationwide.

We invite other leading card companies to follow MasterCard’s lead here. When it comes to developing a national ‘private banker for the poor and underserved,’ we should be all in this together.
