The Partnership Strengthens Our Community Focus on Los Angeles and Provides Financial Literacy Education

Empowering California

Banc of California is proud to be the Official Bank of USC Athletics. This partnership underscores the bank’s commitment to empowering California through its diverse businesses, entrepreneurs and communities. As Banc of California grows, so too, does our commitment and service to the diverse population and future generations of California. The strategic partnership with USC Athletics focuses on increasing access to financial literacy education programs for students in at-risk communities in Los Angeles and across Southern California. It allows the opportunity to educate and give back to the communities that Banc of California is proud to serve.

“By working together with USC, we look to broaden our efforts in reaching out to communities in need while at the same time, providing our employees with opportunities to volunteer and to also enjoy USC Athletics.”

- Steven Sugarman
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Banc of California

Investing in the Future of South Los Angeles Communities

Our commitment includes providing financial literacy education for thousands of at-risk youth in communities surrounding USC, hosting USC basketball clinics for children and participating in the USC Fan Fest events to distribute financial literacy materials to members of the community.

Banc of California will continue to grow its investment in community partnerships that have significant positive impact on future generations of California. This includes investments in high-impact regional projects, partnerships with key non-profit and community organizations and providing access to capital to small businesses and key community development financial institutions such as Clearinghouse CDFI.
