Community Involvement

First Dakota National Bank is responsible to three groups: our neighbors, our employees, and our shareholders.

Community Involvement

For our neighbors, both residential and business, we monitor the financial needs of our community and work to meet those needs. We reinvest in the community to support growth and development while applying our professional judgment to ensure a strong, growing bank. And as a responsible corporate citizen we actively participate in civic affairs, as individual employees and as a bank.

Sponsorship & Donations

We’re proud to support our local communities. Have a sponsorship request for your next event or fundraiser? We invest back into our local towns. Fill out our Request Form and submit it to us for review.
