Christy Maynard, Umpqua Bank Commercial Relationship Manager, states, “Community is at the center of all we do at Umpqua Bank, therefore we are proud to make a contribution of $1,5000 to CCF.  We know this will promote wellness and stability in our Calaveras County communities, specifically in regards to youth development, education and the arts.”  Umpqua has branches in Copperopolis, Angels Camp, Valley Springs and San Andreas.

CCF is proud to be able to dispense funds like this donation from Umpqua Bank during its annual grant-giving period.  In 2011, more than $48,000 was distributed to groups focusing on teens, women’s health, seniors, music, scouts, food pantries and others.

Incorporated in 2001, the Foundation has provided more than $550,000 in competitive grants, scholarships and assistance during that period.

As a 501© 3 non-profit organization exclusively serving Calaveras County charitable causes, CCF offers to donors the potential benefit of a tax deduction and the knowledge that they have helped a variety of worthy local causes.  Most donations are allocated to CCF’s general grant program, but options are available for donors to direct their donation to specific causes or areas of donor interest.
