Community Engagement: Guiding Principles

Strengthen Our Communities

As a Main Street bank, we believe that being a part of the community is about more than our physical location. We take pride in how we relate to and serve our employees, customers and communities, as these relationships are at the heart of our business model. For this reason, among others, being a good partner in each of the neighborhoods we serve is vital. This means listening to our communities so that we can better understand and support their needs, and developing strong relationships with organizations focused on early childhood education, community development, the arts and culture, and health and human services.

Recognizing the importance of our support, we are committed to making business decisions that positively impact our communities. After all, we recognize that we are only as strong as our communities and that when our communities prosper, so does PNC. Of course, the corollary is also true in that a strong regional bank, such as PNC, can support its communities through job creation, local infrastructure, small business loans, financial education and sponsorships. These financial services, together with philanthropic giving and volunteerism, create a series of benefits that strengthen communities.
