As a Main Street Bank, we believe that being part of the community means more than doing business. That’s why working to strengthen and serve our communities is at the heart of our business model.

Community Benefits


For many years, our commitment to communities has helped guide our economic empowerment efforts. But we recognize that we must do more to help challenge systemic racism and drive change. We are committed to actively and consciously working toward equity with kindness, compassion and — most importantly — a clear sense of responsibility.

Launched on January 1, 2022, and scheduled for completion in 2025, the PNC Community Benefits Plan is our pledge to help drive that success through $88 billion in loans, investments and other financial support to bolster economic opportunity for low- to moderate-income (LMI) individuals, communities and people of color.

Community Development Banking

Our Community Development Banking group works to boost the quality of life in low- to moderate-income neighborhoods through financial education, consumer products, community development lending, investing and economic development. Through leadership, technical know-how, strategic investments, community development loans and employee volunteerism, PNC is helping to build strong communities and create financial opportunities for individuals, families and businesses alike. At PNC, we're committed to affordable housing, community service, neighborhood revitalization and economic development.

The group also works to align nonprofit community organizations with PNC Foundation grants and charitable sponsorships to bring their vibrant visions to life.

PNC Foundation

For decades, we have provided resources to seed ideas, foster development initiatives and encourage leadership in nonprofit organizations where imagination and determination are at work enhancing people's lives everyday.

The PNC Foundation's priority is to form partnerships with community-based nonprofit organizations in order to enhance educational opportunities, with an emphasis on early childhood education, and to promote the growth of communities through economic development initiatives.

High-quality early childhood education is the very foundation of a bright future for individuals and society at large. We recognize the significant role educators, caregivers and parents play in early childhood education. That’s why we’re committed to supporting educators and caregivers in giving children the opportunity to Grow Up Great.  

Since 2004, we’ve supported early childhood education through our $500 million, multi-year, bilingual initiative, PNC Grow Up Great®. Our goal is to help prepare children from birth to age five for success in school and in life, with particular emphasis on under-served communities. Through a comprehensive approach of grant funding, employee volunteerism, and awareness and advocacy efforts, PNC Grow Up Great supports families, educators and community partners in providing innovative opportunities that enhance learning and development for our youngest community members, setting a path for success that lasts a lifetime.
