Umpqua bank kicks off small business week with the Made to Grow Grant campaign

Friday, May 8th, 2015

Video contest includes $10,000 Grant, Local Spotlight Feature and Business-building Packages

Nominations are open for the inaugural Umpqua Bank (NASDAQ:UMPQ) Made to Grow Grant campaign, which will recognize small businesses that are helping to inspire thriving communities. This effort kicks off during National Small Business Week, May 4-8, 2015, and brings to life Umpqua’s ongoing commitment to help small businesses grow.  

Starting today, small business owners can enter to win Umpqua’s Made to Grow Grant grand prize by visiting facebook.com/umpquabank and sharing a short video on how $10,000 can grow their business and local community. In addition to the $10,000 prize, the winning business will also be featured in Umpqua’s Local Spotlight program, which features the products of local vendors for sale in select Umpqua stores. 

At Umpqua, we recognize the important impact small businesses have in our communities,” said Ray Davis, president and CEO of Umpqua Bank. “More than half of all Americans either own or work for a small business, which create nearly two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. Umpqua’s Made to Grow Grant campaign is an opportunity for us to celebrate and give back to small businesses in the communities we serve.”

In addition to the grand prize grant winner, five contest participants will receive their choice of a business-building package developed to address some of the issues small business owners confront most often. They include: 

  • Umpqua Bank Financial Counseling: Financial advice on all things small business. 

  • Social Media Specialist: Expert assistance on a company’s social media presence. 

  • Digital Review: A review of digital and print assets from a creative professional. 

  • Storefront Facelift: A refresh of a company’s digital or physical storefront. 

  • Logo Redesign: Hand-crafted redesign of the company’s logo.

Small businesses are an essential part of the country’s economic vitality, accounting for between 60 and 80 percent of jobs in the US, according to several sources. Umpqua Bank’s Made to Grow Grant campaign is one of multiple programs the company has developed to support the growth of small businesses. Others include Local Spotlight, as well as a comprehensive selection of business banking and lending products and services. 

Submissions for the Made to Grow Grant are due by May 20. Entries must be within Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Nevada to qualify. Finalists will be announced on May 27 and the winner selected by popular vote. Umpqua will announce the recipients of the grant and business-building tools on June 8.
