Giving Back to Our Community

Pacific Crest is proud to be a community bank, and to us that means supporting and serving not only our clients, but also the greater community. Whether it’s assisting children’s causes and organizations like Clothes for Kids and Seattle Children’s, or helping the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle and Housing Hope support our neighbors, we are dedicated to contributing to those around us.

We’re always happy to hear about opportunities to serve. Please contact Selam Birye at for more information.
