Everyday community banks in CT work to:

Strengthen Our Community

At First County Bank, we’ve been a part of the community for more than 170 years. That’s why you’ll see us at local events and supporting the causes and programs that matter most. And through the First County Bank Foundation we’ve provided financial support to nonprofit organizations in Fairfield County that work to make life better for you, your family, and the community.

Support Local Businesses

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s the value of small businesses to our local economies. At First County Bank, we’ve valued businesses since we opened our doors. That’s why we offer a full range of business checking products and services and business financing to help local businesses grow. We were also proud to provide loans as part of the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) assisting businesses impacted by the pandemic.
