Sheridan Community Commitment

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 communities. 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.

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.
