Umpqua Bank Hosts a Unique Online Election to Help Local Non-Profits
While most US banks these days face a tarnished image in eyes of consumers, there is a good opportunity for small banks to distinguish themselves from the greedy giants. Umpqua bank based on the west coast is currently holding an online election called ‘Click 4A Cause’. VIsitors to the SaveHard SpendSmart site can vote for one of three community projects run by local non-profit groups. Each vote translates to a dollar that Umpqua will donate to each of the projects. The winning project will get a $15,000 check. Visitor can vote once each week until Sept 2nd when the final vote totals will be tallied.
