Umpqua Bank, through the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation, has evolved its community giving strategy and Community Grants program to reflect a deeper commitment to improving economic prosperity, especially 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.
The 2021 Community Grants Program has closed. For details on next year’s grant cycle deadlines, and any potential changes to our grant guidelines, please check back in late December. We will begin accepting grant applications in January 2022.
