With every fundraising initiative, Columbia Bank is 100 percent committed to keeping every dollar raised within the community from which it originated.
Each year Columbia Bank has committed to supporting the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, the American Heart Association and local shelters in the northwest with our signature Warm Hearts Winter Drive.
We're proud to be a longtime supporter of the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life. The funds we raise go toward improving cancer survival, decreasing the incidence of cancer, and improving the quality of life for cancer patients and their caretakers. Whether it's a ride to receiving treatment or providing help to navigate the healthcare system, Relay For Life helps those who are impacted by cancer, while honoring those who have lost their life to the disease.
More than 700,000 people in the United States experience a heart attack each year. At Columbia Bank, we're proud to support the heart health of our employees and communities by raising awareness and funds in partnership with the American Heart Association.
Our annual Warm Hearts Winter Drive helps families and children struggling with homelessness during the cold and wet Northwest winter. Each winter, we accept cash and new winter wear donations at all of our branches throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho and online. All of the donations and 100% of proceeds are distributed to over 50 local shelter organizations each year.
We'll find a branch near you. You can also visit the locations page or contact us.
