First United Bank

Impact Partner of the year

We value the Mission of First United Bank and feel that they align with our Mission, values, and goals. From visiting our employees in each county we serve, building relationships, and helping break the poverty cycle, we have truly seen an impact in the lives of our employees, and are proud to partner with First United Bank as they continue to Impact our community.

First United Bank and Trust is a financial services organization dedicated to helping our stakeholders protect and make the most of their assets. But we're a lot more than that. Banking and finance are what we do, not who we are. 

Our purpose is to inspire and empower others to Spend Life Wisely. We believe that in order to Spend Life Wisely, we need a balance of faith, financial well-being, health and wellness, and personal growth.

There are many initiatives that our organization has put in place to support our stakeholders on their journey to Spend Life Wisely. 

One of our greatest initiatives is the evolution of our lobby experience.  We are transforming our lobby spaces to be more inviting, innovative, and collaborative.  From coffee bars, tech tables, learning lounges, community calendars, and community learning centers, we are changing the in person banking experience in our communities.  Aside from these new features, you will also see Relationship Bankers that are not restricted to a conventional teller row, but are free to move and flow in however they need to best service our customers.

Our website is another great tool we have built to support the ongoing learning and development of our stakeholders.  Within this site, you can engage in a variety of articles, tools, and resources related to all four Spend Life Wisely pillars.

Throughout our communities we provide educational workshops around our pillars. Our hope is to educate and empower others to become the best versions of themselves by learning tips on budgeting, planning for retirement, creating an emergency savings and more. These workshops are free to the public.

We love our employees and we want to see them succeed in all areas of life. Internally, we recently introduced a Spend Life Wisely Program that is designed to encourage learning, engagement, and involvement within all four of our pillars. Employees have a variety of ways to earn points in each area through workshops, online education, wellness screenings, volunteering, participating in study groups, and much more. When our employees participate, we reward them with up to two additional paid days off each year.

Other initiatives taking place include focusing on financial literacy in the school systems in our communities, leadership development programs, community events and challenges that align with our pillars, and much more.

At First United, our goal with Spend Life Wisely is to share information that educates, empowers, and inspires each person to reach their highest purpose, to realize their fullest potential, and to reach their greatest success. 

We help others spend life wisely. That's not a slogan, it's our promise.
