Community

"Idaho" isn't just in our name, it is in everything we do. Our team is dedicated to impacting our communities throughout this beautiful state and beyond.

Idaho First Bank Places The Community First

We’ve put you first since day one. Here’s a glimpse at how we strive to serve and represent you.

SUPPORTING LOCAL

Community Driven

The Big Business Of Small-Scale Racing

Jim Campbell and his staff at Tekin have been a part of the Idaho First community since 2008! We stood by him when the big banks pulled out of Valley County, Idaho, and continue to stand by him today, helping to manage his international wire transfers and building our relationship. Like the RC industry itself, it is all about results!

Appetite For Growth

Bringing new concepts into Idaho dining for decades, Rex Chandler celebrates 20+ years at his iconic, upscale urban hotspot in downtown Boise, Chandler's Steakhouse. Idaho First is helping him plan for his next decade of delicious new concepts and funding his exciting expansion plans!

Donation Requests

We love to help our community which is why we have put together guidelines to help those who want us to sponsor an event or donate to their cause.

What Community First Means To Us

As volunteers, eager participants, and bankers, we love being a part of our community. At Idaho First, we support various organizations that are serving Idaho and Oregon people and communities. We believe in giving back—it’s a fundamental part of our “People First, Community First” philosophy. Each year, our team participates in a company-wide Community First Week where we close all our branches early to give our team time to volunteer with local organizations and provide much needed services throughout the communities in which we live and work. We receive many requests from the community for donations and we strongly believe in supporting the requests of our friends and neighbors. Our team has a considerable number of causes that are close to each of us, so we have decided to pay special attention to causes or events supporting education, health and safety, and low income housing. To be considered for a donation request, please adhere to our submission criteria and funding restrictions.
