CELEBRATING 100 YEARS
First Federal was established in Yamhill County and has served the Willamette Valley for the past 100 years. We were built on the principle that relationships should be at the forefront of our business and we've always made the community's needs our primary focus. Our decision-making is rooted in supporting the areas in which we do business, providing products and services that mutually benefit our community.
You are invited to celebrate 100 years with us!

Pledge To Make A Difference In Our Community During National Volunteer Week
April 17 - 23, 2022
National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate volunteers, recognize their impact, and encourage volunteerism in our communities. This celebration occurs annually in the third week of April. This year, April also happens to mark First Federal’s 100th year of business in the Willamette Valley.
At First Federal, giving back to our community is a part of us. Stronger and better together, we partner with the residents of the Willamette Valley to cultivate charitable giving and support. It seems fitting that we would celebrate by encouraging our community to volunteer during National Volunteer Week. We want YOU to celebrate this milestone with us by pledging to donate at least one hour of your time to a nonprofit in your neighborhood.
Make a pledge by completing this form. Our goal is to collect 100 volunteer hours by the end of National Volunteer Week. Tell us your name, the volunteer activity, and how many hours you are committing to. It doesn't have to be a lot, every little bit counts! You may also come into any branch and sign a Pledge Sheet.
