Community is not just in our name..

It's the cornerstone of our organization.

First Peoples strives to improve the communities that we serve by volunteering our time to local causes and sponsoring area events. You'll likely see our name on a banner at the ball field and see our friendly faces marching in your local parade. When we say we're "Here for you. Here for good." ... we mean it in every sense. 
First Peoples is happy to receive requests for help with community projects!

Pride in our community is beyond compare! One of our favorite donations of the year comes where we are able to present annual checks to our local schools and non-profit organizations who participate in the SwipeBoost! program. Over the years, we have donated over $159,000 to our program participants!
The program is easy! Have a hand in generating funds for your school or organization just by using your debit card - something everyone uses! Our SwipeBoost! program enables schools and organizations to raise funds without selling anything. The more "credit" transactions made with a logo debit card, the more money that school or organization will receive.
