In Walnut Creek, we are fortunate to have a community that believes in the importance of education and that comes together to support our top-ranked schools. When choosing where to shop in Walnut Creek, won't you please consider these businesses' contributions to our community and show them your gratitude with your patronage!
Featured Partner: F&M Bank
We're excited to celebrate our third year of partnering with F&M Bank. Since founding in 1916, F&M Bank has been committed to serving their communities.  As a full service community bank, they provide all of the services, products, and technology of a big bank but with a personal, friendly, and local touch.  With offices in Walnut Creek and Concord, F&M Bank is dedicated to serving and contributing to our East Bay communities, including the Walnut Creek Education Foundation.
In 2016, the FDIC, once again, awarded F&M the highest possible rating of "Outstanding" for Community Reinvestment.  As of February 3, 2017, F&M Bank is among only 7% of all banks examined by the FDIC in the nation that received this rating.  F&M Bank invested and donated over $38 million and provided over 10,000 service hours to our communities. They believe that in helping people achieve their financial goals, they strengthen the fabric of our entire community.  Farmers & Merchants Bank of Central California.  Member FDIC.
