Once again, everyone at Fremont Bank is celebrating. This time, it’s because we were named a Top Corporate Philanthropist, ranked No. 28 by the San Francisco Business Times for 2022.
Now let’s briefly rewind to 2004, Snoop Dogg dropped it like it’s hot. “The Incredibles” saved us from doom. And Fremont Bank became a Top Corporate Philanthropist for the first time. Fast forward to today, we’re celebrating the 18th year in a row we’ve been on this prestigious list. And we’ve got a few more reasons, too.
Why this matters to you
When we say we’re committed to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve, it really is true. Giving back has been core to our mission since 1964, long before awards began being handed out. It’s simple: When a community thrives, it affects every person, business and organization. And when people, businesses and organizations invest in a community, it thrives.
We all benefit from healthier communities. This kind of recognition further highlights the hard work we’ve done to support and improve the neighborhoods where many of our associates and clients live and work.
But wait! There’s more!
The Top Corporate Philanthropists award honors the region’s most active and inspirational companies. We're all making a difference – through both financial and philanthropic work – supporting Bay Area-based charities in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma counties.
