Giving to our communities
Umpqua Bank, through the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation, continues to believe in the power of partnership by leading with a Community Giving Strategy and Community Grants program that reflects a deep commitment to improving economic prosperity for under-resourced individuals, families, and small businesses. We are dedicated to building healthier, more resilient, better connected, and inclusive communities throughout our footprint.
Through grantmaking and the deployment of other charitable resources — both financial and human — we invest in nonprofit organizations, communities, and leaders with the intent of supporting direct-service programming that incorporates a diversity, equity, and inclusion focus.
