Additional opportunities

In-Kind Donations
Umpqua Bank makes in-kind donations of merchandise, as well as use of facility space when applicable.

Volunteers
Umpqua Bank associates are out in the community volunteering for a variety of projects.

Umpqua Bank's Connect Volunteer Network™ allows associates paid time off to contribute volunteer hours to organizations focused on youth and community development. We believe our strongest partnerships often times begin with volunteerism and grow to include financial support.

If your organization could benefit from our volunteers, let us know.

Online Event Calendar
Umpqua Bank believes in promoting local, neighborhood events. Whether you have one event planned or numerous, we'd like to hear about them and help you spread the word. Post your organization's events on our Discover page.
