Corporate Philanthropy Award for Community Impact

The bank’s wide-ranging commitment to giving back to its communities earned the prestigious 2018 Corporate Philanthropy Award from the Phoenix Business Journal. The publication honored Alliance Bank of Arizona and Western Alliance for creating positive impacts across Arizona. In just one measure of our engagement, bankers hold leadership positions in 106 charitable and business organizations statewide.

Green Our Planet

Bank of Nevada teamed with the Green Our Planet conservation organization to bring nutrition, health and business skills to Title I schools in Las Vegas. As part of this “groundbreaking” garden program, students not only grow fresh produce to share with their families, but they also sell vegetables at a student-run farmers market, create business plans and manage money. In a first among Nevada financial institutions, Bank of Nevada earned the Community Commitment Award for Financial Education from the American Bankers Association Foundation for being part of this effective program.

Dollars and Sense

It’s just good sense for kids to understand how money works. That’s why Western Alliance devotes substantial funds and volunteer time to helping students from low- and moderate-income families learn the basics of financial literacy. In 2018, our bankers volunteered nearly 2,300 hours to this important cause that has life-long positive impacts.
