Bank to Benefit Local Groups

Bank of Marin has announced a fall charitable giving program to benefit nonprofit organizations based in Alameda. The program will award a total of $10,000 in grants, ranging between $500 and $2,500 to selected organizations.

The bank will choose the recipients based on how community members will be served, the geographic reach the funds have and how the grant will benefit Alameda. To be eligible for a grant, nonprofits must be 501(c)(3) organizations with their main offices located in the city of Alameda. Participants do not need to be Bank of Marin customers.

Bank of Marin must receive the application before Wednesday, Sept. 30. The bank’s community relations team will choose the winners and announce them in early November.
