Community Engagement: Guiding Principles

Success Starts with Our Communities

As a Main Street bank, we take pride in how we relate to and serve our employees, customers and communities. Those relationships are at the heart of our business model. For this reason, among others, having a strong leadership presence in each of the neighborhoods we serve is vital. In addition to ensuring that PNC’s brand and corporate priorities are consistent across the company’s footprint, this leadership approach supports the specific needs of individuals and their communities.

Understanding the importance of this connectivity, PNC is committed to making business decisions that positively impact its communities. This support is critical, as we recognize that we are only as strong as our communities. When they prosper, so does PNC. The corollary also is true in that a strong regional bank, such as PNC, can support the communities where it conducts business through job creation, local infrastructure, small business loans, financial education and sponsorships. These financial services, together with our philanthropic giving and volunteerism, create a series of benefits that strengthen communities.

PNC is committed to making business decisions that positively impact its communities.
