About Community Rewards

One of City Bank's guiding philosophies throughout its history has been to be a staunch corporate citizen and regularly give back to our community. That is why Community Rewards was launched. This year we will make available $60,000 to qualifying nonprofit agencies in Lubbock and the surrounding communities. City Bank relishes the opportunity to give back to the people and agencies that make the South Plains such a special place in which to live. Your caring and dedication to making a positive difference are inspiring.
