As California's first certified bank Community Development Financial Institution, Community Bank of the Bay is dedicated to the local community. We are locally owned and operated, and our focus is on the local community, providing financing to small businesses and non-profits so they in turn can create jobs.

To further this community responsibility, we work closely with the Oakland Business Development Corporation, California Capital Access Program, and the Alameda County SBDC to help fund loans to businesses that might not otherwise qualify for traditional credit.

Community Bank of the Bay is especially proud of our management and staff who dedicate many hours to worthwhile service organizations throughout the year, helping local business groups, neighborhood improvement councils, youth and family organizations, and local police departments.
