Mission Statement

Altoona First will continue to be an independent, mutually-owned, relationship-driven community bank. We will passionately focus on relationships to help employees, individuals, families and small businesses succeed. Through an intense focus on serving, we will be a driving force in seeing our local communities prosper.

Our Story 

Altoona First Savings Bank encourages everyone in Central Pennsylvania to get real — a real community bank, that is.

We are a mutual bank as opposed to a stock bank. What does this mean? It means our operating philosophy is to benefit our customers and community, not our stockholders. Because we don't have stockholders.

This boils down to you, our customers, in the form of better rates and enhanced services. It results in local decisions for faster results. It means small businesses have a partner that has a vested interest in their success.

We're proud of the way we approach banking. We're a REAL community bank making a REAL difference. Altoona First has been serving the needs of Central Pennsylvania since 1927. And we look forward to doing so for future generations as well.
