Community Involvement


Making a Difference in the Community

City National believes that, together, we can make a difference.

It's a philosophy that guides our efforts in fostering healthy communities, strengthening local neighborhoods, and encouraging employment, economic and community development.

It's a commitment that goes beyond investing millions of dollars annually to support charitable and civic programs and organizations that contribute to the long-term success and well-being of our communities.

It’s more than offering the financial products, services and expertise that help thousands of small- and mid-size businesses grow—or making lending and equity investments that support local economic and community development, job creation and affordable housing.

Simply put, investing in the communities we serve is the way City National does business.

The City National Team

Our City National colleagues are an integral part of our story. Their caring and compassion complement and extend the impact we have within our communities.

Volunteering in the Community

Our colleagues donate thousands of volunteer hours annually, with City National’s encouragement and support. To assist colleagues in their efforts, we offer a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year and coordinate PRIDE Days, our annual bank-wide day of community service, throughout our footprint. We also offer a Dollars for Doers program where the bank will donate up to $500 annually for a qualified non-profit when colleagues volunteer 20 or more hours of service.

Workplace Giving Campaign

Through our annual Workplace Giving Campaign, City National colleagues generously support a broad range of charitable nonprofits that provide education, empowerment and caring to those in need.

Back-to-School Drive

Started in 2011, City National coordinates an annual drive to collect backpacks for students attending schools in underserved communities. Backpacks filled with essential school supplies are distributed to schools and organizations throughout areas we serve.

Business Attire Clothing Drive

City National colleagues donate gently used business attire and professional accessories to numerous organizations that prepare job-seekers for entry into the workforce. Items donated provide men and women with the tools to project a positive image, and boost their self-confidence and self-esteem. This support helps job-seekers find and maintain employment, and empowers them to achieve economic self-sufficiency.

Disaster Relief Efforts

Through corporate, colleague and matching colleague donations, City National contributes to various national and worldwide disaster relief efforts.
