Community Involvement

Our Commitment to Community

In 2015, PlainsCapital Bank supported more than 350 organizations in the communities we serve. PlainsCapital’s commitment to the community starts at the top of the organization through our Chairman and CEO Alan B. White, who is a champion for numerous causes throughout the state of Texas. PlainsCapital employees follow White’s lead with their involvement in local civic and charitable organizations. PlainsCapital is committed to improving the quality of life in the communities where we live and work.

PlainsCapital Bank has a consistent history of giving back to the communities we serve through our volunteer efforts and financial contributions. We strive to make our communities a better place by creating long-lasting partnerships with organizations that encourage financial literacy, support education programs, and foster economic development. Let us introduce you to some of the organizations we’re passionate about. 

Our Commitment to Financial Literacy

Financial literacy is important to PlainsCapital, especially when it comes to young people. We are focused on preparing students for jobs, college and beyond.

In 2014, PlainsCapital Bank partnered with Texas Council on Economic Education (TCEE) to develop a targeted financial literacy curriculum for seventh- and eighth-grade students. The curriculum, funded by PlainsCapital Bank, covers topics such as saving, budgeting, credit, taxes, loans, interest and financial responsibility. Financial literacy education is mandatory for all students in the state of Texas. PlainsCapital Bank provides the TCEE education curriculum free of charge to teachers in the state of Texas so they can teach these principles in their own classroom, as well as to organizations that provide educational programs for underserved students in the markets where we do business.

Employees also volunteer their time to teach personal financial literacy lessons to middle school students in afterschool programs throughout Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Lubbock, the Rio Grande Valley and San Antonio.
