Our role within the community   

Being responsible stewards of our clients' assets, our communities, and the environment is a core tenet at RBC Wealth Management. We strongly support this belief and are committed to giving back to the Boise/SunValley community through volunteering, sponsorships, and financial support

Upper Dry Creek Project 

Something’s fishy in Dry Creek! The shadowy figures in the pools of Dry Creek are not the mafia. These hardy survivors are native Columbia River redband trout—a rainbow trout species adapted to life in small high desert streams throughout the Pacific Northwest. Unfortunately, as hardy as these fish are, their home waters are challenged by trails that cross the creek over 25 times, as well as storm water runoff and sediment from Bogus Basin Road, negatively affecting the ability of the trout to spawn. The Land Trust of the Treasure Valley and Boise City have entered into a unique partnership with the private landowner to provide a well-managed trail system that will protect the habitat of the native redband trout, and we are very proud to have volunteered for this important effort that will both improve the enjoyment of the public’s use of the area, and protect the integrity of the stream.

About BUGS

Over the past ten years, the Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) has been responsible for more dirt under the fingernails of more kids than anyone else in the valley—and that’s a great thing. BUGS teaches local children about nutrition, environmental responsibility, the pleasure of fresh air and the value of hard work.

In celebration of BUGS 10th anniversary, RBC Volunteers helped plant a BUGS garden on May 16, 2015. We were very happy to be able to help BUGS in their mission.

Blue Water Day 2015

On Saturday May 2nd, the King Barrios & Boe Investment Group took part in RBC Blue Water Day 2015 by marking the storm drains around Ketchum to remind residents and visitors that any material entering the drainage system ultimately flows into the Big Wood river affecting the environment, wildlife, and all of us.  Our project was planned in conjunction with Clean Sweep Day, which is sponsored by our partner non-profit organization, The Environmental Resource Center.

Hemingway Chapter of Trout Unlimited

We were proud to perform a streamside restoration project on Loving Creek (Silver Creek).

Silver Creek is a unique high desert spring creek with a globally distinctive aquatic ecosystem. We planted native plants of various sizes to help protect and promote stream restoration.

This will allow rainwater and snowmelt to sink slowly into the ground, helping to reduce stormwater runoff and flooding as well as to capture and filter chemicals and sediment from the water.

 

Idaho Food Bank Backpack Program

RBC Wealth Management and the Boise branch were proud to support the Idaho Food Bank Backpack Program with a $7,500 donation. 

The funds are used to help chronically hungry children by providing food support each weekend throughout the school year, when free school meals are not available.

 

Hunger Coalition

We are pleased to have awarded a $3,000 grant to the Hunger Coalition for food assistance programs. This contribution will help purchase food for three mobile food bank distributions.
