To enhance the success of our communities by providing exceptional service and expertise to support the goals and aspirations of people, businesses, and nonprofits.


We founded Bank of San Francisco in 2005, seeing the need for a progressive, relationship-driven and technology-enabled community bank. Our focus has been to identify needs in our community and develop and provide the services necessary to meet those needs. Whether helping with the purchase of a business, growing a nonprofit or taking out a mortgage on a first home, we are with our clients when it matters.

We were pioneers among community banks in developing robust mobile banking capabilities for our individual and business clients. Through technology, we are able to serve all of our clients’ day-to-day banking needs out of one location.

When our clients started expressing a need for flexible business financing, we developed expertise and crafted tools which have made us a leader in both conventional and SBA business acquisition and expansion financing.

As the complexity of the Bay Area housing market increased, we became an accessible residential lender, developing a portfolio residential lending mortgage program, including TIC financing. Today, we are able to meet the complete range of home ownership needs of all our clients.

As the Bay Area’s not-for-profit sector grew, levels of need grew as well. Given our bank’s keen desire to be a source of expertise and support for nonprofits, we did not take the conventional route. We developed customized banking services for San Francisco nonprofits and began offering seminars, training, and guidance to our numerous nonprofit clients from leading experts in the field.

For more than a decade, Bank of San Francisco has invested in the ongoing economic success of the Bay Area, continuously expanding our capabilities and resources to meet the evolving needs of our client base. Going forward, we will accelerate that investment to enhance the continued success of the communities that we serve.
