About Community Banks Find a Community Bank

One Mission. Community Banks

With nearly 50,000 locations nationwide, community banks constitute roughly 99 percent of all banks, employ nearly 700,000 Americans and are the only physical banking presence in one in three U.S. counties.

Holding nearly $5.9 trillion in assets, over $4.9 trillion in deposits, and more than $3.5 trillion in loans to consumers, small businesses and the agricultural community, community banks channel local deposits into the Main Streets and neighborhoods they serve, spurring job creation, fostering innovation and fueling their customers’ dreams in communities throughout America.

ICBA dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes. However, dues may be deductible as a business expense, except for the 21.5 percent of 2022 and the 26.2 percent of 2021 ICBA dues – whenever paid – that are not deductible, according to the Internal Revenue Code, because of ICBA’s lobbying activities on behalf of its members.
