Charitable Giving

Proud to be Serving Our Community Since 1904

McFarland State Bank has been part of the community since 1904 when a group of local business owners decided to open a local bank that families and businesses could count on.
Today, we continue to offer financial solutions. And we continue to be deeply rooted and invested in helping to make our communities a better place to live.
We welcome the opportunity to provide support  -  financially, in-kind and through volunteerism -  to organizations that are lifting up those in our communities.
