Pacific Western Bank


We give tremendous thanks to our first corporate donor, Pacific Western Bank. When our relationship began well more than 20 years ago, the Bank was small, operated under a different name and was headquartered in Santa Monica. It has since grown to become one of the largest banks in the state of California with operations nationwide. Their commitment to Strive has also grown over the years as shown by their most recent gift of $75,000 in 2018.

Pacific Western Bank was also the lead sponsor of our 25th anniversary event in 2015 whereby George Winston performed at Strive for our donors, staff and students.  The bank’s executive team is very supportive of Strive and have visited with our kids many times, most recently with a visit from Debbie Davis, Senior Vice President and Compliance Manager. Pacific Western Bank and Senior Management clearly have a heart for our students and the thorny challenges they navigate.  Their faith in our efforts and their investment in the futures of our students is deeply appreciated and we thank them sincerely.
