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.
