To advance economic growth, we believe every community should have access to quality education, safe and affordable housing, job opportunities, transportation and health care. Alliance Bank of Arizona takes great pride in our proactive and consistent lending and investments, grants and donations to underserved communities, low- and moderate-income individuals, and the nonprofits that serve them.

Nonprofit 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
