From supporting local businesses through lending to strengthening the places it calls home through volunteerism and corporate philanthropy, Bank of Marin has been honored to call the Greater Sacramento region home since it joined the community in 2021.
“Our foundation in the Sacramento market was strong,” says Bank of Marin President and CEO Tim Myers of the bank’s 2021 acquisition of American River Bank. “And over the past two years, we’ve really been able to showcase Bank of Marin’s signature legendary service and demonstrate our guiding principles of relationship banking, disciplined fundamentals and commitment to our community.”
“For us, banking will always be about relationships,” Myers continues. “We pride ourselves in looking at each borrower, company or real estate investor on an individual basis and evaluating each deal on its own merits. We also pride ourselves in staying true to our roots as a community bank.”

The bank’s commitment to community goes beyond helping customers reach their financial goals. Each year, the bank donates at least 1% of pre-tax profit to positively impact the communities it serves. Thus far in 2023, Bank of Marin contributed more than $167,000 to 46 organizations serving the Greater Sacramento region. This is in addition to the financial contributions made by its employees.
“The bank’s contributions, and that of our employees, goes beyond dollars and cents,” Myers says. “Every year, our employees give more of their time and talent to support the communities where we do business and fulfill the bank’s mission to ‘do well by doing good,’ and 2023 has been another banner year in that regard.”
Looking to 2024, Myers says Bank of Marin is focused on continuing its commitment to its customers, local businesses and the community as a whole by deepening its existing relationships and welcoming new ones.
