Opus Bank and the Opus Community Foundation have approved grant awards to 16 charitable organizations that will have an immediate and enduring effect on the rebuilding of communities in California and Washington.

The Foundation awarded grants to nonprofit organizations that concentrate on health issues, education, financial literacy, housing and/or the arts.

“While Opus Bank remains focused on providing capital funding to business owners, real estate investors and entrepreneurs who share our vision to expand and grow, our vision doesn’t stop there,” said Stephen H. Gordon, chairman and CEO of Opus Bank and chairman of the Opus Community Foundation. “The organizations with whom we have chosen to partner have programs targeting specific areas of need in our California and Washington communities. These programs have consistently proven to be very successful and have shown great results.”

Seven of these organizations – A Place Called Home, Camp Pendleton Armed Services YMCA, Christmas House, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Orange County and the Inland Empire, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Washington, Second Harvest Food Bank, and Sky Valley Food Bank – were selected by Opus Bank team members through the Foundation’s Celebrate Generously holiday giving program.

In addition to the groups noted above, The bank and foundation granted awards in California to Homework House, Human Options, LA Goal, Mercy House and Share Our Selves.
