Supporting the greater good.

At First Western Trust, we know it makes a difference to partner with a bank that recognizes your unique value and customizes solutions for your organization. To fulfill your mission, you need partners in the community that recognize the important work you do. To sustain your organization, you need a strong financial strategy backed by a solid banking platform. First Western’s Treasury Management team will help you find the services that are right for your organization, including our customized nonprofit checking account and nonprofit credit card. We also provide a sponsorship package, offered in partnership with MaxGiving, which empowers nonprofits with the tools for more effective fundraising.

Nonprofit Checking Services

Each month, you receive 150 free transactions, including:

  • RDC deposits
  • Online transfers
  • ACH credits/debits
  • Checks paid
  • Point of sale purchases
  • Deposits

Furthermore, your company earns interest on deposits with our competitive rate and has real-time access to your accounts through our complimentary business internet banking services.

Our checking account serves as a great solution for many nonprofits, providing flexibility in your transaction options and accessibility through online banking. Based on your organization’s specific needs, we will work with you to identify if any further treasury management services could improve your financial platform.

Nonprofit Credit Card Services

To help you efficiently manage your organization’s spending, we offer the CommUNITY card. This procurement card merges your employees’ accounts onto a single platform. Through an online portal, you have real-time knowledge of expenses, allowing for improved forecasting and detailed transaction histories.

You can also select merchant categories to specify where your team can make purchases in order to protect against unapproved transactions. As a part of this service, you gain access to the Visa Liability Waiver program, which protects against card misuse for up to $100,000. Your company’s financials determine if you qualify for secured, unsecured, or pre-funded cards.

Through our tailored approach and market-leading earnings credit rate, First Western Trust helps nonprofits of all sizes customize business banking accounts to increase efficiencies in the back office. That way, you can focus on what’s most important: your mission.
