At Idaho First we look, speak and act like more than just a bank by putting people, community and Idaho first in everything we do. See what we mean.

Belonging , not banking.

At Idaho First, we believe that banking was meant to be a very personal experience, rooted in community. At its core, banking with us is about the value of relationships and trust as much as the value of a dollar. We think and act according to three central ideals:

People First

We treat people differently than any other bank in the market. Sure we’re smaller than many, but at Idaho First you have all the products and services you need to thrive here in Idaho. We are a small business based upon the idea of community. As such you’ll find our responsiveness and our creativity are unmatched. 

Community First

Our roots run deep here and our community involvement shows in unique and authentic ways through our identity and our actions. We love to do business here and you can see it in the way we live our values every day.

Idaho First

Like you, no one here lives to bank. In 2005, we created this bank to live. And we live to dream… to decide… and to design our unique Idaho lifestyle. So we invite you to put Idaho front and center in your Idaho life, just as we do in our name.
