Exchange Bank, Large Business of the Year
Exchange Bank’s relationship with our local Chamber dates back to 1906. Following the great quake, Frank Doyle, president and co-founder of Exchange Bank, joined with other business and civic leaders to form the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce and help Santa Rosa rise from the ashes. The City Council challenged the new Chamber with the slogan, “Build a bigger and better Santa Rosa.” That special relationship continues today as the Bank works with the Chamber and its membership to create a new vision for downtown, find solutions to our workforce and transportation challenges, and once again, help our communities rise from the ashes.
In response to the October wildfires the Bank increased charitable giving, employees volunteered in the community, and the Bank was able to open ten of our eighteen Sonoma County Offices immediately after the fires to provide essential banking services and support to both our customers, non-customers, and our communities.
Since 1890, Exchange Bank has been serving the local community, not only through trusted banking and financial services, but also through its charitable giving. Exchange Bank differs from national and regional banks by investing 100% of its charitable giving in the communities it serves in Sonoma County and Roseville (Placer County). In addition, 50.44% of the Bank’s cash dividends go to the Doyle Trust which funds the Doyle Scholarship at Santa Rosa Junior College. Since 1948, the Doyle Scholarship Fund has provided $83 million to over 127,000 students.
Exchange Bank’s mission statement is “From generation to generation, we invest in people, business and community to build a strong future.”
Exchange Bank is proud to be a Premier Member of the Santa Rosa Metro Chamber.
