First American Bank provides the specialized products and affordable financing those organizations need to operate their business and take on major capital projects.

First American Bank has over 200 not-for-profit clients. They range from small community theaters to regional universities, utilizing basic checking accounts to a full suite of treasury management services with working capital lines of credit, construction loans and tax-exempt bonds. First American Bank is also committed to giving back to the community with donations and in-kind contributions. Over the past five years, through our scholarship program, we have contributed over $500,000 to our not-for-profit clients.

Tax-Exempt Bonds

One of the benefits of being a not-for-profit is the ability to borrow at tax-exempt rates. Whether your project is being funded through operating cash flow or a capital campaign, First American Bank can help you finance a new facility or equipment and realize substantial savings through 501(c)(3) bonds.
