We’re small enough that little things mean a lot to us. We are truly interested in the health of the community and economic development because the bank’s health is directly tied to the vitality of the community it serves. As new businesses are formed and existing businesses grow, jobs are created that provide new opportunities for everyone. Local people supporting local businesses results in a strong, vibrant community and that is what Freedom Bank is all about.
One way we directly support the community is through Freedom Bank’s Gateway Pride Project. This innovative program offers loans up to $5,000 at 0% interest to any business from Columbia Falls to Polebridge and over to West Glacier with a payback term as long as four years. The loans are to be used for landscaping, painting signage, paving, etc.
“This program has served as a spark in the community whereby many businesses are sprucing up their properties and the cumulative impact is very noticeable,” said Don Bennett, President. “It shows that the bank believes in the community and is committed to investing in its bright future. We’re doing it for the entire community and that’s the spirit that drives Freedom Bank.”
We are a small community bank that is innovative and committed to building personal relationships that foster a strong community. Freedom Bank is your bank.
As the “Gateway to Glacier National Park”, the Columbia Falls community and the surrounding small towns are very desirable locations to raise a family in an outdoor atmosphere with an excellent opportunity for business investment.
