About Us

Scholarship Opportunity

We view part of our role as a community bank is to be active in our communities. Helping fund educational opportunities for kids in our communities is just one way we have demonstrated our commitment to serving those of all ages in our communities.

Each spring we award a $500 scholarship to a graduating senior from each of the following schools, as well as Peoples Bank employees’ children:

  • ADM (Adel, De Soto and Minburn)
  • Greene County Schools (Grand Junction, Rippey, Jefferson and Scranton)
  • AC/GC Schools (Adair-Casey/Guthrie Center)
  • Ogden
  • West Des Moines
  • Waukee

Seniors who will be graduating in the spring are encouraged to fill out our scholarship application and bring it by a Peoples Bank office by April 15th of student’s graduating year.

From the very beginning, Peoples Bank has been a bank for people of all professions and backgrounds. Our “People First Banking” approach means your needs -- not our bottom line -- comes first. Always.

The Story and Background of Peoples Bank

Having served central Iowans since 1917, we known the challenges you face and have had to adapt to new technology and changes in the banking industry. Keeping one eye forward is how we’ve been able to grow from one branch in Grand Junction to nine over our history.


Peoples Bank was first established in Grand Junction, Iowa


Green Circle Investments Inc. purchased Peoples Bank and First National Bank of Rippey


The bank merged with UFS and Security National Bank, resulting in a footprint of Grand Junction, Rippey, Guthrie Center, and in 1996 purchased Security National (Jefferson and Scranton)


A new location was built in Adel


Our Clive and Waukee locations were added


Our principal offices moved to Clive


Our Ogden location was added


Our footprint includes 9 offices in the communities of Grand Junction, Rippey, Guthrie Center, Jefferson, Scranton, Adel, Clive, Waukee and Ogden

Our motivation and our values focus on building financial success for the families, farms and businesses we serve.
