A tradition of giving and community involvement.

Redwood Empire Food Bank, which serves as the largest hunger relief organization
in our area and plays a crucial role in helping individuals, families, seniors, and children.
Partnering together for a stronger community.
Exchange Bank has been serving the local community since 1890, not only through trusted banking and financial services, but also through charitable giving. Exchange Bank differs from national and regional banks by investing 100% of its charitable giving in the communities it serves in Sonoma County and Roseville (Placer County). In addition, 50.44% of the Bank’s cash dividends go to the Doyle Trust which funds the Doyle Scholarship at Santa Rosa Junior College. Since 1948, the Doyle Scholarship Fund has provided over $100 million to more than 140,000 students. Bank-sponsored fundraisers are a tradition that foster a spirit of giving throughout the Bank. Each year, employees personally raise more than $100,000 through a variety of fundraising activities.
“Exchange Bank’s legacy includes a commitment to community support. Our employees embrace our culture of giving back, donating thousands of hours of their own time and talent year-round to fundraise and support local charities and nonprofit organizations,” said Troy Sanderson, president and CEO.
For the past 26 years Exchange Bank has been named the corporate fundraising champion for the Human Race, benefiting local nonprofits in Sonoma County. Exchange Bank provides employees paid time off to participate in community events, and many share their leadership talents by serving on nonprofit boards to benefit the community.
Exchange Bank is an annual contributor to over 200 local nonprofit and charitable organizations, including the Redwood Empire Food Bank, the American Red Cross, Ceres Community Project, the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County and the Sonoma Humane Society—all of whom provide support services, shelter, food and emergency care during flood and fire season. Other notable contributions include annual support for the Santa Rosa Junior College Foundation, the Saralee Kunde Barn at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, Social Advocates for Youth (SAY), the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma County, the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, the Santa Rosa Symphony, the Petaluma Educational Foundation, the Santa Rosa Community Health Clinic and the Transcendence Theatre Company.
