We're stepping up for you.

That impulse to step up is rooted in the City National identity. That commitment to relationships permeates our organization's culture. Nurturing relationships inspires us every day to step up.

Making a difference in the community.

Investing in the communities we serve is the way we do business. Four out of five City National colleagues choose to make charitable donations through our Workplace Giving Campaign. Here is just a quick overview of the contributions we've made together as an organization in 2020.


When it matters most.

Our commitment goes beyond investing millions of dollars annually to support charitable and civic programs and organizations that contribute to our communities’ long-term success and well-being. We believe that we can make a difference together. We understand that we need more than words to move forward. We need action.
