Transparent, Honest Banking


When others say "impossible", Legacy Bank says "possible".

While other banks hide behind automated support and AI, the real people of Legacy Bank courageously step out from behind the screen and into the community to provide the highest caliber of banking and financial services to you.  
We are founded by the Soboba Tribe and are a minority-designated institution. Legacy Bank supports business owners because we are business owners. Personal relationships and reinvestment in the community are our goals.
The Soboba Tribe has a noble history of longstanding ventures in agriculture, entertainment, education, non-profit organizations, and charity. Legacy Bank now stands testament to the tribe’s continued growth and economic strength. This establishment reinforces our shared story and success.

“LegacyBank is built on courage! The courage to believe. The courage to make a difference. The courage to persevere despite the obstacles. We are seekers of solutions.”- James D. Hicken – President & CEO
