Community Building

Key Word: Community

We make a point of supporting the communities we serve, because without community, there is no Columbia Bank. Use the resources on this page to get involved or request a sponsorship for a non-profit organization in your community.

Supporting Our Communities.

Many companies place tight parameters around corporate giving that limit sponsorships and contributions to organization that fit within a specific category. While these narrow parameters can simplify the decision-making process, they also tie the hands of those trying to address specific needs in their community. At Columbia Bank, we empower employees to allocate the majority of sponsorship support in their community to the causes they feel are most important. View our sponsorship guidelines to submit a request for support on behalf our your organization.

Warm Hearts Winter Drive


In 2015 we launched the Warm Hearts Winter Drive to support local homeless shelters throughout the communities we serve. We collected cash and warm winter-wear items which were distributed to local homeless shelters and relief organizations in the communities where they were collected. Through the efforts of our employees and the local communities, we raised $157,537.00 and collected 11,523 items to donate. Find out more.
