Corporate Contributions

Our Mission Statement

As one of the leading financial institutions in Northern and Central California, Westamerica Bank is committed to providing the highest quality banking services to the citizens of our communities and to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.

We pride ourselves in investing a portion of earned income back into the communities which we serve. One of the ways we do this is through contributions to locally based non-profit organizations providing programs or services in the following areas: health and human services, education, the arts, and civic affairs. Contributions vary and generally fall in the range of $100 to $1,500.
