To advance economic growth, we believe every community should have access to quality education, safe and affordable housing, job opportunities, transportation and health care. Bank of Nevada 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.
Our commitment to growing Southern Nevada’s nonprofit base is an essential value for Bank of Nevada. Members of our team actively support nonprofit organizations in the Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas and Mesquite communities, often serving on multiple boards and committees. Our Community Alliance Program, which features competitive banking products including checking, Money Market, Analysis and Certificate of Deposit accounts, reflects this strong commitment.

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
Revitalization or stabilization of low- or moderate-income areas
