Committed to Reaching Out, Digging In and Giving Back

At Mechanics Bank, we help enrich our communities by fostering local economic growth and cultivating long-lasting relationships by putting the best interests of our clients first. For more than 115 years, we’ve made innumerable individual contributions to local nonprofit organizations and, today, are honored to be listed among the top 50 Corporate Philanthropists in our markets.

That said, our community commitment extends beyond financial support. We make strategic business decisions to ensure we can remain a trusted business partner for years to come, starting by taking local accountability. We may have grown substantially, but many of our decisions are made on the local level, by employees who are your neighbors and friends. We grow strategically, making sure we’re big enough to meet all our clients’ needs but small enough that your local branch staff knows you by name. And your deposit dollars also stay local, often reinvested into the economy in the form of loans to help local businesses grow and create local jobs.

Finally, when we’re not delivering top-notch service to our clients, we’re volunteering in our communities. In 2019, Mechanics Bank employees supported more than 50 community-based organizations by contributing 875 volunteer hours. And we look forward to diving headfirst into volunteerism once the pandemic passes, helping our communities come back stronger than ever.
