Canby in Your Community

Helping others is part of Canby’s cultural DNA. In addition to providing financial guidance to individuals and families, Canby maintains a strong commitment to the community and the world at large.

Each year, we serve as a corporate sponsor for events held by area nonprofit organizations, and we also donate a portion of our profits to local, national, and international charities. We encourage our employees to give time and funds to causes and organization that interest them by matching their contributions and giving each two paid days per years to participate in volunteer work.
