California is entering its fourth year of drought. As a bank whose mission is built around promoting sustainability, our Green Team felt it was important we collectively address our dire water situation in California.

Come July 6, 2015, we are moving to a new office space in the Financial District at 255 California Street, on the 6th floor. The move is precipitated by the end of our lease at 405 Howard Street and a lack of additional space in our current building to accommodate our growth. The new space on California Street will continue our same standard of LEED Gold premises and will also include a number of sustainability upgrades, which we can’t wait to unveil in July once the design and remodel is complete.

On September 18, about 40 nonprofit leaders gathered together for a morning workshop hosted by New Resource Bank on “Fundraising Strategies for the Missing Middle.” The event was facilitated by Third Plateau Social Impact Strategies, a philanthropic advisory and nonprofit consulting firm.
Who is the missing middle? Traditionally, these are donors between $1,000 and $10,000. But they are more than that too--the missing middle wants to engage in nonprofits’ work beyond just contributions.
