PNC Bank is a supporter of 91.9 WCLK, Atlanta's Jazz Station. Many listeners have heard about their Grow Up Great Program on the station. The PNC Bank Grow up Great program began in 2004. This program is an outgrowth from PNC employee suggestions that the company support children and education. With this direction from their employees, PNC felt that early childhood education was the right cause. They studied compelling research that shows a focus on children from birth to age five could reap significant gains for the children, their families and society overall.
