Cultivating Vibrant, Healthy Communities

Western Alliance strives to help the vibrant and diverse communities we serve sustain a high quality of life and long-term economic growth. This is an integral part of our business culture. 

To advance economic growth, we believe every community should have access to quality education, safe and affordable housing, job opportunities, transportation and health care. Our banking divisions take great pride in our proactive and consistent lending and investments through EQ2, grants and donations to underserved communities, minority businesses, low- and moderate-income individuals, and the not-for-profits that serve them.

For inquiries regarding our community support or more information about our commitment to the Community Reinvestment Act, please contact one of our dedicated CRA team members.
