City National Bank Announces National Partnership with Habitat for Humanity
September 30, 2019
LOS ANGELES — City National Bank, America’s Premier Private and Business Bank®, today announced that it has partnered with Habitat for Humanity, marking the company’s first national relationship with a nonprofit organization.
As part of this partnership, City National colleagues will volunteer more than 2,400 hours building and repairing homes and revitalizing neighborhoods in their local communities. City National will join Habitat for Humanity in 22 builds and events across the U.S., including in Northern and Southern California, Las Vegas, New York City, Atlanta, Nashville and Washington, D.C.
“We are deeply inspired by Habitat for Humanity’s mission to solve the affordable housing crisis in America,” said City National CEO Kelly Coffey. “Partnering with Habitat will allow us to be actively involved in helping families build better lives in our communities. This partnership builds upon our long history of working to foster healthy communities, strengthen local neighborhoods, and encourage economic and community development where our colleagues and clients live and work. A bank like ours is only as strong as the communities it serves, and with Habitat, we will help strengthen our neighborhoods nationwide.”
City National has supported local Habitat organizations for nearly 20 years on the West Coast, with projects including team home builds, galas and fundraisers. Most recently, City National was the presenting sponsor of the 2019 Los Angeles Builders Ball®, an event hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. In addition, Linda Duncombe, executive vice president of marketing and product strategies at City National, joined Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles’s board of directors this month.
“Habitat for Humanity fulfills one of our society’s most pressing needs, by providing people across the nation with clean, safe and affordable housing,” Duncombe said. “Support for this organization reflects City National’s very strong commitment to our communities, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”
“When businesses like City National step up at a national level, they can make a huge difference, by helping even more families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter,” said Julie Davis, Habitat’s vice president for corporate partnerships.
