First Federal -- Honored six years in a row with a Corporate Philanthropy Award from Portland Business Journal and nationally recognized by the American Banker's Association with a 2010 Community Bank Award.


First Federal was founded in 1922 to provide a secure, locally-owned financial institution for Yamhill County residents... a place to build savings and borrow money to purchase a home. This initial philosophy continues to guide our decision-making and strengthen our dedication to our customers and our community. When you bank with us, your money is invested here and stays here, working for and giving back to our community.

In 1999, we established a formal community giving program to support local nonprofit organizations. Since that time, we have donated more than $2 million to Yamhill County organizations with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Our donations are made through our Customer Ballot, First Federal Community Rewards, Scholarship and Community Grant programs, in addition to numerous local event and organizational sponsorships. We also sponsor annual Shred Day events to help community members protect themselves from identity theft, and Community Internships through a partnership with Linfield College.

First Federal recognizes the critical need for financial literacy for all ages and has teamed with Yamhill County high schools and EverFi, a leading online financial literacy platform, to provide the latest in media technologies to students to help teach personal finance and bring complex financial concepts to life.
