Nonprofit Organizations

At First Republic Bank, we know that when it comes to reaching your organization’s fullest potential, you need partners who understand both you and your industry, inside and out.

We have extensive experience working with nonprofits, including social service organizations, independent schools, the performing arts, museums, historical societies and community foundations. In fact, over one-third of our business loans have supported the expansion and growth of nonprofit organizations. Through the years, our commitment to the community and our nonprofit clients has helped us refine our services. What results is an intensive client focus that translates to greater flexibility and tailor-made solutions to help you meet your needs, attain your goals and simplify your life.
