Local Banking

Local Banking At Work

Our community is rich with diversified sectors ranging from manufacturing and nonprofits to healthcare and technology. The Greater Portland and Southwest Washington Area’s future is our future and we’re taking action to effect positive change. We’re banking on communities by putting resources back into the local economy, keeping it thriving for generations to come. We call this local banking at work.

When it comes to nonprofits, we set the stage for success.

We also take great pride in partnering with local
women-led organizations and nonprofits like Broadway
Rose Theatre Company.

“We are so grateful that Pacific West Bank is a sponsor
- and you can’t beat their personalized service. They’re
local, pleasant to work with, offer a quick turnaround
time, and as a member of the bank, I know first hand
that they take good care of their clients.” - Sharon Maroney, Co-Founder and Artistic Director, Broadway Rose Theatre Company



Powell's and PWB: We Wrote The Book On Great Partnerships

“It’s the people at PWB that make this relationship so valuable. They really understand our goals and they are invested in helping us reach those goals.” - Patrick Bassett, CEO, Powell's Books

When we formed our relationship with Powell’s Books owner Emily Powell and CEO Patrick Bassett, we knew we were all on the same page - to be their trusted financial partner while staying committed to our shared values of giving back to the Greater Portland community.


Benefit Corporations for Good

The time is now to be on the right side of change, the revolution has begun and we’re jumping into the action. At Pacific West Bank, we’re dedicated to change for the greater good and value of the triple bottom line: People, Planet, and Profit. Joining the Benefit Corporation for Good movement means we’re actively participating in preserving a better planet for the future. We value working with companies and non-profits that are aligned with the same mission.
