Umpqua Bank celebrates the spirit of the holiday season with the launch of its Joy of Giving campaign on Facebook. Starting Tuesday, Nov. 20, fans are encouraged to post about their favorite nonprofits, and Umpqua Bank will randomly select organizations to share in grants totaling $50,000. The Joy of Giving campaign will run through Sunday, Dec. 16, at www.facebook.com/umpquabank.
"Every day, our communities are enriched by the dedication and contributions of nonprofit organizations that provide a great service to our communities," said Ray Davis, president and CEO of Umpqua Bank. "Like Umpqua, our customers and neighbors are passionate about the nonprofits in our communities and we wanted to provide an opportunity for them to join with us in celebrating these organizations – and giving back in a meaningful way."
To participate in the Joy of Giving, individuals simply visit www.facebook.com/umpquabank and post about a favorite nonprofit organization. Posts should include the name of the nonprofit, its location and a brief explanation of why it's valued. Nominated nonprofits must be located within Umpqua Bank's four-state territory and will be selected randomly to receive a portion of Joy of Giving grant monies. Umpqua Bank will announce winners throughout the campaign.
