When we work together, we can achieve anything.

Giving to our communities

We know that the future health of our communities depends on investments we make today. Through Community Grants, we provided program funding to more than 200 nonprofit organizations throughout our five-state footprint. Review our guidelines to see if your organization qualifies.

COVID-19 Update: We're expanding eligibility for our Community Grants program. This expansion can help Umpqua Bank and the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation offer stability and support for nonprofit organizations in our five-state footprint during this challenging time, while alleviating some financial pressure due to: lost fundraising revenue; increased service demand; and reduction in paid and volunteer staffing. Please review the guidelines to understand changes to deadlines, application and review process, focus areas, and eligibility.

NOTE: We're receiving tremendous demand for Community Grants. Please understand that an application does not guarantee funding. Thank you for your patience as we're experiencing delays in the review process.
