Our Community Commitment

Committed to Reaching Out, Digging In and Giving Back

​Proudly serving our communities, enriching local lives and driving economic growth

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.  Mechanics Bank employees support more than 50 community-based organizations by contributing hundreds of volunteer hours each year. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves even more this year to help keep our communities heathy, vibrant and strong!

Technology to Go

Briefcase

No TARP Here

We were one of the first to turn down the U.S. Government’s offer for bail out assistance back in 2008 because we simply didn’t need it.

We're for Main Street

It’s where our own small business started more than a century ago, and where it still resides today. Our business only thrives when our clients and local communities do, and that’s why you come first.

119 Years and Counting

Having already survived two World Wars and a Great Depression, we've learned a thing or two about having a long-term vision and maintaining our financial strength. Being here to serve you in the future is something you can bank on.
