Why First American?


Nonprofit Expertise

We understand the challenges facing nonprofit organizations today and we are committed to being a part of the solution. Our industry alignment helps us understand emerging trends that are important to you, which in turn allows us to provide leading-edge solutions. Our knowledge and experience give us the unique ability to customize projects based on your organization's specific needs.

Direct Lender

As a subsidiary of City National Bank, you have access to a direct lender. That means your organization receives the best of both worlds – we have the financial resources to meet the most complex requirements and our nimble team of finance experts is focused on efficiently serving your needs.

Service with Purpose

We intentionally left “call centers” out of our service model. Instead, you work with a small team of professionals who specialize in serving nonprofits. Included in this team is your dedicated Project Manager who knows your organization, your project and your challenges. This leasing specialist works with you to understand your needs and preferences as he or she provides you with personal, direct service. Your Project Manager takes personal ownership in driving growth and success for your organization. It is a big job – but that sense of purpose is critical to realize our vision to be the best company to work for and the best company to work with.

Innovative Tools

We are innovators in the industry and use technology to make our clients' lives easier whenever possible. From our cloud-based mobile app, Project Management Hub, to the use of e-signatures, our technology and our process are each fundamentally different – and fundamentally better – because they are focused on you.
