The Union Bank Foundation supports nonprofit organizations in the communities in which the bank has operations, primarily in the states of California, Oregon, and Washington. The Foundation’s areas of interest include affordable housing, community economic development, education, and the environment. The Foundation prefers program grants, but will consider requests for core operating support and/or capacity building grants to support exceptional work within its funding categories. The bank also offers a charitable contributions program for nonprofit organizations addressing additional areas such as arts and culture, health and human services, and emergency services. Requests to both of the bank’s grant programs may be submitted throughout the year. Visit the bank’s website for detailed funding guidelines.
