Three Sacramento nonprofits receive “Facebook grants” from Umpqua Bank

Three Sacramento nonprofits recently received grants from Umpqua Bank through its Joy of Giving campaign on Facebook.

On November 20, Umpqua Bank asked people to post comments about local nonprofits on its Facebook page. The campaign ran through December 16.

Nominated nonprofits had to be located within Umpqua Bank’s four-state territory—Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada.

The bank selected 25 nonprofits to share in grants totaling $50,000. Mutual Housing California was awarded $5,000.

Mutual Housing staff posted the campaign to its Facebook page on November 27. Executive Director Rachel Iskow sent out an email asking people to respond.

“This grant from Umpqua Bank will help us continue our mission of housing families of modest means in safe and affordable housing,” said Iskow.
