About Us

Making home a little sweeter

We have a responsibility to you, our neighbors, and we make it our mission to support our local communities!

As a true community bank, we are inspired every day by the communities where we live and serve. We feel a connection with the way of life here in North Central Iowa. That's why we give so much effort to giving back.

In addition to sponsoring and participating in area events, we make it a priority to provide financial support to nonprofits and local development projects. While megabanks hold onto every penny, we provide over $150,000 a year to community initiatives and events, such as:

  • Riverfront Project
  • Main Street Charles City
  • Chamber of Commerce
  • Local festivals and events
  • Much more

Additionally, our employees and board members give their time and energy to the following organizations:

  • Booster Clubs
  • Charles City Historic Preservation
  • Floyd County Cattlemen
  • Floyd County Fair
  • Franklin County Fair
  • Franklin County Tourism
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Hampton Historic Preservation Committee
  • Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce
  • Library Board
  • Main Street Charles City
  • Main Street Hampton
  • Mentoring Program
  • North Cedar Aviation Authority
  • Relay for Life
