City National Bank, Nevada’s Premier Private and Business Bank®, and its equipment finance affiliate First American Equipment Finance, today announced that they have awarded Touro University Nevada with a $10,000 donation to help fund scholarships for students who need financial aid.
“City National’s support of our scholarship program has helped many of our students receive much needed funding for their medical education,” said Shelley Berkley, CEO and senior provost of Touro University Nevada. “City National has also been a strong supporter of a number of other programs at Touro including our annual gala, our alumni reception, and much more. They are wonderful corporate partners who share in our mission to help educate tomorrow’s healthcare professionals.”
Touro College and University System is the parent of Touro University Nevada. Touro College and University System was established in New York City in 1970 by Bernard Lander, PhD, LHD, as a Jewish-sponsored independent institution of higher and professional education primarily to enrich the Jewish Heritage, and serve the larger American community. Approximately 19,000 students are currently enrolled in its various schools and divisions, located primarily in Nevada, California and New York.
“With the cost of a college education continually going up there are an increasing number of young people who can’t afford to pursue their professional dreams without some financial assistance,” said Scott Aney, Nevada regional executive for City National. “Touro is a great medical school that is filling a real need in our community. City National is so proud to be a part of this institution of higher learning and the wonderful programs it offers to students and our community.”
Touro University has been a client of First American Equipment Finance, a City National Bank company, for 15 years. Touro has financed equipment, real estate improvements and software, and has been working with City National on a number of special programs for its students, faculty and alumni. The bank also installed an ATM on campus three years ago, and last year Paul Stowell, chief market strategist for City National, was appointed to Touro’s advisory board.
