IN THE TWO YEARS SINCE PNC BANK’S REGIONAL PRESIDENTS’ MODEL HAS BEEN IN SAN DIEGO, the bank has already had a profound impact on the community. PNC is now a coast-to-coast bank with a presence in each of the nation’s top 30 markets.

A dedicated community partner, PNC San Diego has teamed with many local nonprofit organizations and provided bank employees with numerous volunteer opportunities. The San Diego chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals recently recognized PNC with the Outstanding Philanthropic Business award.

“Our clients and our community are at the center of everything we do at PNC,” said Alan Prohaska, PNC regional president and head of Corporate Banking. “Whether it’s banking, volunteerism or philanthropy, we are focused on moving the community forward. Through collaboration with our community partners, we can impact everyone, especially children and families, across San Diego County. I’m proud of our team for making a significant impact in only two years of operating locally.”

Across San Diego, PNC employees are active members of the community, volunteering and serving on boards. Since 2021, the PNC team has volunteered with the San Diego Food Bank and supported its School’s Out, Hunger’s Not summer food drive, which has positively impacted millions of families across the region.

The San Diego team also works closely with the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, fulfilling PNC’s commitment to early childhood education through PNC Grow Up Great, the company’s signature philanthropic focus.

PNC supports the museum through grants, volunteerism, and board and committee involvement. PNC supports the museum’s mobile learning unit, taking its educational enrichment programs to children in underserved neighborhoods throughout San Diego County. Earlier this year, the museum premiered its new PNC sponsored exhibit, MoneySense, a learning space designed for children to step into the world of banking and finance.

As a military community, San Diego is home to thousands of veterans, active-duty service members and their families. Working with San Diego Habitat for Humanity, PNC employees have volunteered their time and talents to renovate and refurbish veteran homes as part of Habitat’s Veterans Build program. Through the bank’s sponsorship with Habitat, PNC volunteers have also built playhouses for children and volunteered at the Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, the organization’s donation center.

“Supporting local organizations that directly impact San Diegans is exactly how PNC operates in the communities we serve,” said Valerie Attisha, PNC vice president, client and community relations. “We are proud to work with mission- aligned organizations that are committed to empowering and transforming the lives of those we serve in this region.”

While PNC has made great strides in just two years, the bank is just getting started.
