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 investment through EQ2, grants and donations to underserved communities, minority businesses, low- and moderate-income individuals, and the not-for-profits that serve them.

Not-for-profit Assistance

Our commitment to growing the not-for-profit base in our markets is an essential value for our banking divisions. Members of the teams actively support local not-for-profit organizations often serving on multiple boards and committees. Our Community Alliance Program, which features competitive banking products, including checking, Money Market and Analysis accounts, reflects this strong commitment.

In addition to strong lending and investment programs, we make charitable contributions to help 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations that provide services and support in low- or moderate-income areas. Among other efforts, our banking divisions work with organizations and programs that provide:

  • Affordable housing for low- or moderate-income individuals
  • Community services targeted to low- or moderate-income individuals
  • Education for low-income and at-risk students
  • Economic Development
  • Revitalization or stabilization of low- or moderate-income areas
  • Cultural and Artistic Enrichment in underserved communities

  • Request Amount
  • Purpose of the request
