Nonprofit Savings

At City First we have a clear understanding of the unique special needs and mission focus of nonprofit organizations.  Unlike most banks that are owned by shareholders whose primary motivation is profit, City First shareholders are like minded social investors who expect business proceeds to be reinvested in the company.

And because we know that many nonprofits share our mission of making a positive impact on the welfare of low-wealth or underserved communities, we have a tailor-made savings solution that offers higher rates for higher balances to help grow the funds and further the financial viability of these nonprofits.

Nonprofit Advantage Money Market Account  The Nonprofit Advantage Money Market account is exclusively for organizations that provide social, health, family, or youth services, or services with a positive impact on the welfare of low-wealth or underserved members of the community. This account offers higher rates for higher balances, and helps grow your funds to further your financial viability. 

Certificates of Deposit  Your nonprofit can make money grow in both the short- and long-term with City First Certificates of Deposit. Start saving for your mission with minimum deposits as low as $500.00.
