Banking Built Better

We believe banking should be simple and enjoyable. We believe in keeping the fine print and fees to a minimum and creating transformational relationships built on trust, not transactional ones based on maximizing profits. Our people are incentivized to serve, not sell, and our products are crafted to do the same thing.

To us, you’re more than the balance of your bank account: Guided by our “Better Fedder” training and a compassionate and caring attitude, we nurture relationships to help you define and achieve your financial goals, which is why we put people above the bottom line.

Utilizing our vast network of local social service providers, individuals without two forms of qualified personal identification can utilize a referral from one of our many local nonprofit partners as one form of credentialed documentation to open an account.

Our team of caring and knowledgeable bankers are here to help open a Community Checking Account and to set customized goals and strategies for achieving your unique financial objectives.

Nonprofit Partner Referral Form

As a mutual bank, we’re accountable to you, our customers, not corporate shareholders. With our business model, you’re more than a customer, you’re a stakeholder, which means more for your wallet, for your future and for our community.

This translates to many low to no-cost product and service options. It means we’re focused on helping you get ahead with budgets, financial plans and accounts that provide safe, sustainable and meaningful ways to save.

When you bank with us, you can rest assured knowing you’re doing business with a bank that puts our local neighbors first. Each year, we donate anywhere from 10 to 15% of our profits back to the community, which totaled more than $460,000 last year! Furthermore, we foster a culture of volunteerism among our people, who happily contributed more than a thousand hours of service last year.

Quarterly Celebration

We contribute two cents to local charitable organizations with your debit card transactions. By swiping, using your digital wallet, or ordering online, your OlyFed debit card will generate two cents to be donated to a nonprofit in the South Sound!

This charitable gift-giving program is free, year-round and works with any OlyFed debit card that’s tied to an active account. It’s an automatic stream of donations to a local nonprofit simply by using your OlyFed debit card for transactions that you normally make.

Our Two Cent Campaign launched in November of 2018 and has provided more than $150,000 in support to more than 50 local nonprofit organizations whose missions are to improve the quality of life in our area. The benefiting charity changes each month and all you have to do is continue the things you love like shopping, eating out and grabbing a movie with friends.
