Community Banking

At 1st Security Bank, we take a holistic approach to supporting nonprofits. While our relationship may start with accounts and services, we provide so much more!

Spotlight Days / “Mission: Possible!”

Select 1st Security Bank branches hold special days spotlighting local nonprofits, with priority given to bank clients. Additionally, we are the sponsoring hosts of “Mission: POSSIBLE!,” a free annual educational event for nonprofits.

Employee Banking

1st Security Bank Nonprofit Banking clients are eligible for our Employee Banking benefits, free checking, free debit card, free online banking and more for your employees!

Volunteering

We encourage our bank employees to volunteer, especially with nonprofits which primarily serve clients with a low to moderate income. Please contact us for additional details.

*1st Security employees are given 16 hours of paid time per calendar year to volunteer at a nonprofit of their choice. Many volunteer more hours of personal time. Many use those hours to volunteer at fundraisers and events hosted by our community nonprofit partners.

Donations

Each November, 1st Security grants $100-$250 to qualifying, local nonprofit clients to show our appreciation for their efforts to enhance our communities.

Bridging Connections

Because our Community Banking team is so well-known in the community, they are a great resource for nonprofits looking for a job applicant referral, for joint grant partnerships, and for connecting nonprofits with each other.

Community Rooms

Our Capitol Hill, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Puyallup and Sequim branches all have meeting rooms which may be scheduled for use by our nonprofit clients at no cost.*

*Capacity 8-20, varies by branch location. 1st Security Bank reserves the right to approve or decline requests at its sole discretion.
