Giving Back to the Community

As a privately owned community bank, First Bank has been focused on the local community and meeting the needs of its neighbors for over 60 years. We have developed a bank-wide culture of caring by giving our time, talent and resources as well as financial education and charitable contributions.




Community Involvement

Our directors, officers and staff share their financial expertise by serving on the boards and committees of local non-profit organizations. In 2019, through their efforts, we have provided over 3,500 hours of volunteer service.

Community Outreach

We have made a commitment to supporting non-profit organizations throughout Lake and Cook Counties. Due to our charitable contributions, event sponsorships, volunteer efforts and financial education we are building relationships with our community leaders. By working together, we help those in need and strengthen our community.

  • Food pantries
  • Homeless shelters
  • Social service agencies
  • Affordable housing programs
  • College scholarships for those in need
  • Financial education for seniors and youth
  • Business development seminars

Financial Education

In 2011, First Bank developed and piloted the Junior Banking Ambassador program. The mission of the program is to educate children on fiscal responsibility through engaging and interactive activities in which students can provide peer to peer lessons taught with guidance from the First Bank staff. The curriculum used for this program, Money Smart for Young Adults, was developed by the FDIC.
