Can I really support the environment by where I bank? Can I really control what my money is used for?

Yes, you can do both by depositing your money into the Bay Area Green Fund. The Bay Area Green Fund provides financing to local green businesses or for green purposes. As a depositor with the bank, you can choose to dedicate any deposit to the Bay Area Green Fund — so you'll have the satisfaction of knowing your money is helping support your environmental values.

Community Bank of the Bay is certified as a Bay Area Green Business, and was the first green bank in Oakland. Amongst our many green offerings, we have even introduced the Green Machine, which lets your business deposit checks without leaving your office.

We have a wide range of paperless products that are eco-friendly and encourage paper conservation while cutting down garbage output. And if you are looking to grow your business we invite you to apply for a loan, whether you already operate as a green business, or are looking to improve your business by going green.

Join us in making green banking the way of the future!
