Community Impact

Building our Community Legacy

Each one of us at Baker Boyer is deeply committed to the communities we serve. Professionally, that means we do our best to create solutions uniquely tailored for our clients.  Personally, that means we volunteer our time, lend our expertise, and donate funds to the organizations, programs, and events that make our community strong and vibrant. 

Contributions and Sponsorships

As a bank, Baker Boyer supports hundreds of organizations each year through contributions and sponsorships. Some of these are long-term relationships with organizations and events like Frontier Days in Walla Walla, the Trios Foundation scholarships in Kennewick, and the Yakima Town Hall speaker series. We support dozens of school and youth teams and clubs. And our employees make personal contributions through our annual United Way campaign, supported by corporate matching gifts. 

In 2016, Baker Boyer introduced an addition to their community gifting program to strengthen its mission to help build local legacies. The Legacy Giving Program is designed to help alleviate some of the costs of building a non-profit organization’s legacy. You can learn more about the Legacy Gift Program here, and see profiles of prior recipients below. 

Volunteering

Baker Boyer employees are actively involved in dozens of community organizations. Some serve on Boards of local nonprofits. Some are active members of organizations like Rotary, Exchange Club, and Elks. Many more serve as coaches, classroom volunteers, and mentors. See below for our Featured Community Volunteer.
