Helping Communities Thrive

We Are Committed

Investing in people, neighborhoods and local businesses is a key part of our mission.

Our communities thrive thanks in large part to the many dedicated organizations that work tirelessly creating opportunities for Bay Area residents and businesses. We are proud of our heritage of helping them assist low- and moderate-income and/or minority individuals, families, and areas with community and economic development, affordable housing, asset building, financial education, and youth programs.

It’s Not Just About Money

We Are Engaged.

Serving our community is in our DNA.

Nowhere is that more evident than in our longstanding partnership with the inspiring team at My New Red Shoes, as they work to improve the quality of life and well-being of children and youth in the Bay Area. Since 2006, they have helped more than 90,000 students and we’re proud to support their efforts by contributing not just money, but also our time and our talent.
