Its main headquarters is in Tacoma, Washington but it has more than 140 locations throughout Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. They center on relationship-based banking and strive to form long-lasting relationships with all customers.

They also are very involved in the local communities, especially in the winter times when they raise money for food and donations for people impacted by homelessness. They have raised over $366,872 in cash and have donated more than 19,663 winter items. One hundred percent of the proceeds always go to Warm Hearts Winter Drive which operates and funds 54 homeless shelters.

They also received a $500,000 grant alongside Washington Growers League through the Affordable Housing Program. The grant was paid for by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines. This grant will help create more agricultural jobs and help build seasonal housing for farmers.

The main purpose of the grant is to build a 144-bed facility in Mattawa, Washington. This will allow seasonal farmers a warm and safe place to live while they work.
