Community Engagement

Committed to Our Communities - Today. Tomorrow. Together.

FISB Logo Community EnvolvementJust as we are committed to serving our communities by providing high-quality personal customer service and financial knowledge, we are committed to building our communities through charitable giving and volunteerism.

Each year, FISB employees donate hundreds of hours to over 40 organizations in Davis and Van Buren County including churches, schools, local organizations and charities. As an organization, FISB contributed approximately $90,000 to local non-profit and community organizations in 2018, across an array of need and community betterment.

Those seeking a donation can visit First Iowa State Bank or print and complete a Donation Request Form.

Casual for a Cause

Casual for a CauseSince its inception in 2014, First Iowa State Bank has donated over $45,000 to organizations in Davis and Van Buren Counties through Casual for a Cause, our bank-matched, employee-giving program!

Financial Literacy

We are proud to support students’ financial literacy growth through classroom presentations, digital financial literacy sponsorship and hands-on learning. FISB is a proud sponsor of Everfi Financial Literacy for the Van Buren and Davis County Community School Districts and in 2018, we teamed up with Van Buren Community School District to bring Warrior Pride Bank to Douds Elementary. This fun and interactive experience gives K-6 children the opportunity to start a savings plan in a safe environment and to help address 21st Century Financial Literacy Skills.

Real Iowa Bankers

Real Iowa BankersSenior Vice President Alisha Duehn shared, “In the time I’ve been employed with the bank, I’ve come to realize that community banks are the heartbeat of neighborhoods all across the nation. First Iowa State Bank is no different! Our faces, our name and our brand stand for so much more than banking. Many community members have put their faith and trust in us; it only seems right to give back to the community who has supported us through the years. Not to mention, we have some FUN people surrounding us! Truly serving others is a humbling and empowering experience. It’s amazing how you volunteer to make an impact, but you yourself is the one who walks away a changed individual. We are Real Iowa Bankers!”
