Financial Education

As a Main Street bank, we are invested in our customers’, communities’ and employees’ financial well-being. Believing that taking simple steps today can make all the difference in one’s future, we devote significant energy and expertise to ensure that we are delivering the most relevant insights and resources when and where our stakeholders need them.

Here are a few examples of what we're doing to promote financial literacy:

PNC My Finance Academy

We launched this tool after research showed us that students want to learn money management skills from their financial institution nearly as much as their parents do. Schools were also asking us for financial education materials. To meet the need, we launched the PNC My Finance Academy web page featuring easy-to-access articles, podcasts and our first webcast. We are continuing to develop content that will help students interested in growing their financial skills. To learn more, visit PNC My Finance Academy.
