Umpqua Bank is the largest bank headquartered in the Northwest and a leading western U.S. financial institution. Through the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation, 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 Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation will only fund programs that serve a majority low-to-moderate (LMI) population.
