Community Commitment

Community Commitment Program

For Non-Profit & Charitable Organizations
First Federal Bank & Trust is giving away $1,000 per week by random draw, every week in 2023 to a 501(c)(3) or qualified tax- exempt organization in Sheridan and Yellowstone counties.
If First Federal has donated to your organization within the past three years, you are automatically entered into the drawing. Please note that eligibility is at First Federal's discretion.

Service. Lead. Inspire.

First Federal Bank & Trust's SLI Committee aims to be a central point of contact in the communities we serve for organizations that rely on volunteer support. Committee members coordinate volunteer opportunities for staff and serve as liaisons between the organizations and employer.

If your organization is in need of volunteers, please fill out and submit the form below to slicommittee@efirstfederal.com.

Supporting Our Communities

Icon / Care
First Federal Bank & Trust believes in a thriving community. It's why we've focused on our customers since 1935. We know that values matter - in business, in life and in community. Our mission will always be to support and improve the lives of our staff, customers and community.

Why We're a Mutual Bank

Icon / Arrow / Wheel
Being a mutual bank gives us the unique opportunity to give back. We don't pay stockholders - we pay our community. When you bank with us, we reinvest your funds right back into the places we call home. We're one of just three mutual banks in Montana and Wyoming.

We understand the success of our bank is dependent upon the success of our clients and our community.
