Investing in the Community

At City National Bank, our commitment to our customers goes well beyond serving their financial needs. We serve our communities through charitable contributions, volunteerism, financial education efforts and developing special products that meet the needs of those in our communities.

Charitable Contributions

City supports hundreds of charities annually, including social service agencies, community and economic development groups, cultural and arts organizations, and other programs that address the specific needs of the communities in which our customers and employees live and work.


Serving our communities by giving of our time and talent is an important part of City’s culture, and our employees collectively donate thousands of service hours each year. City employees volunteer for a variety of organizations and community events, and many serve as trustees, directors and advisors on boards for local organizations.

Financial Education

At City, we believe it is our responsibility to play a role in the financial education of people throughout our communities. Our employees spend time in schools, community organizations and seniors centers leading financial education programs like Teach Children to Save, Get Smart About Credit and Safe Banking for Seniors.

Products and Services

Financial institutions carry many of the same products, but not all community banks are the same. City National Bank employees maintain strong relationships with customers and are in tune with the needs of local citizens.

In recognition of a need, we were among the first banks in the country to introduce an innovative checking option, Bounce Back Checking, for individuals who have been denied the opportunity to open a checking account and are looking for a fresh start.

Our City Start Mortgage program, with little to no money down, low flat-rate closing costs and a flexible credit score requirement helps first-time buyers with low to moderate income realize their dream of owning a home.

We also offer special accounts for seniors and community heroes like veterans, first responders, teachers and medical professionals.

How to Request Financial Support. While we can’t support every worthwhile endeavor, we are happy to consider requests from non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations within our footprint.

To submit a written request for consideration, please address your requests to your local branch.
