Bank of Marin

Meeting Community Needs in Northern California

It is an exciting time at Bank of Marin as it grows to serve a larger Northern California footprint . With this expansion comes the ability to have an even greater impact on the communities it serves .

Bank of Marin founder William P . Murray , Jr . firmly believed that the bank would always “ do well by doing good .” For more than 30 years , Bank of Marin has delivered on that promise in its approach to business and corporate giving . “ In fact , it is so central to who we are and what we do , it is one of our three guiding principles ,” says Bank of Marin President and CEO Tim Myers . “ We give back to our communities through our corporate giving programs and active employee volunteerism , including nonprofit board leadership .”
Bank of Marin supports and encourages its employees to get involved in their communities . Last year alone , bank employees provided more than 5,000 hours of volunteer service despite social distancing restrictions and served on more than 85 nonprofit boards .
Through its charitable grant and community sponsorship program , Bank of Marin donates at least 1 percent of pre-tax profit to nonprofits that focus on community and economic vitality , education , and enrichment and wellness programs . The bank feels that addressing critical needs in these foundational areas build a socially and economically stronger society .
Since Bank of Marin merged with American River Bank in August 2021 , it has already made an impact on the community , supporting local organizations such as Saint John ’ s Program for Real Change , PBS KVIE , Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and United Way California Capital Region — and the bank is just getting started !
Bank of Marin opened its doors in 1990 and has since donated over $ 7.5 million and employees have provided over 75,000 hours of their time to philanthropic endeavors .
