BANC Foundation

Together We Can

California is about people working together to achieve things greater than themselves.  Businesses that create shared prosperity and opportunity. Communities that foster connection and universal respect. Organizations that improve the lives of people in need.

As California’s Business Bank, we partner with many service organizations, businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals to help them achieve those goals, through the BANC Foundation. We donate to them. We lend to them. And our employees enthusiastically volunteer in their initiatives.

Banc of California Unveils a $4.1 Billion Plan to Benefit the Communities We Serve

Banc of California has announced an expansive $4.1 billion, three-year Community Benefits Plan in connection with our transformational merger with Pacific Western Bank. This plan was developed in collaboration with community stakeholders, including Rise Economy, with the goal of improving the lives of low-income and BIPOC communities and making a meaningful and positive impact in the areas served by the combined institution.

The plan will become effective only upon consummation of the proposed merger, which remains subject to satisfaction of closing conditions, including receipt of required stockholder and regulatory approvals and the concurrent closing of a $400 million equity capital raise.
