Community 1st Bank was founded in February of 2006 by local small business owners, community and civic leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals.  These individuals are the Bank’s founding investors and its initial customer base.

Through good times and bad, Community 1st Bank has been there for its clients.  The Bank’s motto of “With You – For You” was selected by our clients.  Our investors would have it no other way.  Being owned by “Main Street” and not “Wall Street” means we will partner with you to meet your financial goals and dreams.

With strong capital and liquidity, Community 1st Bank has become one of the fastest growing banks in the Sacramento region.  Our strengths are our people, our clients, and a passion for service excellence.  Over 80 percent of our business is generated by referrals; we are proud of this reputation which defines relationship banking.

We will exceed and earn our place as your partner; helping you find the best financial solutions – whether that means financing, investments, or deposits.  Come experience the difference of a locally owned Bank with local decision making; a Bank that reinvests back into your community.
