Faith, family, farming and financial stewardship are what drive First National Bank to be committed to reinvesting 10% of the bank's pre-tax income back into the communities. This reinvestment is made in the form of sponsorships, donations to local non-profits, and support of the local schools through the TS Institute.

Igniting Prosperity

At First National Bank, we are more than a community bank; we are a community prosperity engine. Working together, we strive every day to create an increasingly positive impact on our clients and our communities.

We Ignite Prosperity® through the following five areas:

  • Community Reinvestment Efforts
  • Products and Services
  • Lending to Local Businesses
  • Employment Opportunities
  • TS Institute

"Ignite" defined as "to evoke emotion, to excite, to set in motion," and "prosperity" defined as "to thrive or cause to succeed" and, from the Latin prosperåre to succeed, from prosperus fortunate; (i.e.) "PRO" means (FOR) + spés means (HOPE) is what Ignite Prosperity® means to TS Bank. We are for hope!

Community Outreach

By supporting a number of community initiatives, we strive to make an impact.

Community Outreach

TS Institute

The TS Institute, a non-profit established in 2009 by the TS Banking Group, is an organization committed to creating a more financial-savvy future generation through a K-12 financial literacy program in each school in the bank's market area. TS Banking Group donated $250,000 to jump-start this initiative, and three years later made a $1,000,000 commitment to help expand the program to other schools. To date the TS Institute has impacted 10,000 students in Southwest Iowa, and has received a grant from the Iowa Division of Banking to help expand the programming to other banks within the state. The TS Institute has now expanded to include North Dakota and Illinois. For more information visit their website or find them on Facebook or Twitter.
