Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation Awards Third-Round Community Grants to 77 Nonprofits

Umpqua Bank supports community-based nonprofits boosting economic vitality 


In its latest round of community grant funding, the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) of Umpqua Bank, a subsidiary of Umpqua Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: UMPQ), awarded 77 community grants to local nonprofits across its five-state footprint totaling $305,500. 


In total, the three rounds of community grants contributed $1M to community organizations across Ore., Wash., Idaho, Calif. and Nev. and are part of Umpqua Bank’s overall foundation and corporate giving program that has invested $12.8 million since the Foundation was formed in 2014. 


“We’re honored to invest in the important work of  local nonprofits who have continued to provide critical community services and programs during challenging times,” shared Randy Choy, Managing Director of the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation. “Our gratitude goes out to these nonprofits who are essential partners with us to improve access to economic opportunity for all community members.” 


These nonprofits were selected from hundreds of applicants who demonstrated a steadfast commitment to serving low-to-moderate income populations in at least one of eight categories: family engagement and resiliency; financial competency; housing stability and home ownership; college, career or technical readiness; entrepreneurship and business expansion; vibrant and equitable neighborhoods; technical and digital connectivity; and small business support and financial guidance. 


These grant recipients received between $3,000-10,000 and are listed below. The next deadline for community grant applications will be announced soon. Learn more at www.UmpquaBank.com/Community
