Three Sacramento nonprofits recently received grants from Umpqua Bank through its Joy of Giving campaign on Facebook. The bank selected 25 nonprofits to share in grants totaling $50,000.

Mutual Housing California, which also serves Yolo County, was awarded $5,000. Women’s Empowerment was granted $2,000 and Roseville Home Start $1,000.

On Nov. 20, Umpqua Bank asked people to post comments about local nonprofits on its Facebook page. The campaign ran through Dec. 16. Nominated nonprofits had to be located within Umpqua Bank’s four-state territory — Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada.

“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, Umpqua Bank president and CEO.

“Like Umpqua, our customers and neighbors are passionate about the nonprofits in their 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.”

Mutual Housing California has received grants from Umpqua in the past as part of the bank’s mission to give back to the communities it serves.

“This grant from Umpqua Bank will help us continue our mission of housing families of modest means in safe and affordable housing,” said Rachel Iskow, Mutual Housing’s executive director.

Founded in 1988, Mutual Housing California develops and operates rental housing for modest-income households. The communities have 2,750 residents, half of whom are children. It is building the New Harmony development on Cowell Boulevard in South Davis. For more information, visit www.mutualhousing.com.

Headquartered in Portland, Ore., Umpqua Bank is a subsidiary of Umpqua Holdings Corp. For more information, go to www.umpquabank.com.
