February 1st, 2024, Dogwood State Bank and Community First Bank announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement to merge pending regulatory approval.
Dogwood is headquartered in Raleigh, NC and began with a mission to bring community banking back to North Carolina, redefining what it means to BANK LOCAL. Dogwood and Community First have similar values and their passion for customers, employees, and local communities allows for an even better combined company for both organizations.
Dogwood is excited to be a part of the Community First communities and will work with local leadership to find ways to support and be active citizens. We pride ourselves in supporting non-profits and other organizations that make our local communities a better place! We believe that a good community bank is the fabric of any community.
