Sponsorship Guidelines

Community and Sponsorship Guidelines

We endeavor to fairly give of our time, talent and dollars. All requests are reviewed and given equal consideration as part of our decision-making process.

2018 Requests are currently under review. We are no longer accepting 2018 commitments at this time. Applications for 2019 support will be accepted between May 1, 2018 - October 31 2018.

We conduct an annual sponsorship review to determine funding for the following calendar year. Please review the guidelines below prior to submitting your request.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for a contribution or sponsorship, an organization generally must:

  • Be an IRS-designated 501(c)3 nonprofit organization
  • Be located in a community with a Columbia Bank branch or office
  • Have a Columbia Bank employee involved, or volunteering with the organization


Submit Your Request

Please submit your request through our online application. Requests mailed or emailed will not be reviewed. As a reminder, all applications are due by October 31, 2017 to be considered in 2018.

Requests received after October 31st will not be reviewed.


What to Expect

You will receive an email confirmation when you submit your request online. After the October 31st deadline, all requests will be reviewed for funding consideration. You may be contacted if additional information is required to complete the review process.

We receive a large number of requests each year and appreciate your patience during our review process.

You will be informed via email of our decision no later than January 30, 2018. You may also login to the Support Request Portal and view the status of your request at any time.




Due the number of requests we receive on a daily basis, please allow 30 days for a response to your question. Thank you.
