Suncrest Bank Kickstart Small Business Grants

Suncrest Bank contributed over $30,000 in grants to struggling small businesses during the second half of 2020 and first quarter of 2021.  In partnership with the Sacramento Republic FC, the Bank has completed three rounds of grant programs aimed at supporting small businesses across the Greater Sacramento region. In each round, the organizations also partnered with a local Chamber of Commerce (Sacramento Black Chamber of Commerce, Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Sac Metro Chamber of Commerce). In 2021, Suncrest Bank will continue to support small businesses with at least 3 more grant cycles in the Sacramento region.

We are excited to announce, in 2021, the Grant program will be extended with additional new rounds aimed at uplifting businesses from South Valley communities.
