Donations & Sponsorships

One of the cornerstones of the First National Bank is being involved in the communities that we serve.  We pride ourselves on our generosity to financially supporting community events, causes, and organizations.  While the financial support is a wonderful way the First National Bank gives back to its communities, it is our dedicated employees who consistently go above and beyond in volunteering in the communities which we live and work.  Whether it is a fundraiser to help a family pay medical bills and our employees hold a bake sale to raise money, or helping out at the famous Iola Old Car Show, our employees that exemplify the true small town community spirit that we are so proud of.
