Customer Ballot

Since its founding in 1922, First Federal has been the secure, locally owned financial institution for Yamhill County friends, families and neighbors. This community-based philosophy continues to drive the services and programs First Federal provides today, including listening closely to the desires of our customers through the Customer Ballot Program.

About Customer Ballots

Since 1999, First Federal has donated more than $3.68 million to charities in Yamhill County. Our customers have helped us give back $960,225 through our Customer Ballot program. This year, we have donated another $40,000 based on their votes.

As we reach the end of our 100th year of being here, we wanted to emphasize the need to give back to our community. Our Customer Ballot Program continues to be a popular way for our customers to help support the increased need throughout Yamhill County. Help us help our local community organizations by voting for two Yamhill County organizations listed on the ballot. Our Customers can also nominate a nonprofit to be added to the list.
