Supporting Our Communities

Supporting Our Communities is our charitable contribution partnership. In 2021, we selected 30 nonprofits that aligned with our philanthropic mission and have established a connection to First Foundation through our employees. 

Our partnerships are multi-faceted. They include a grant from First Foundation, employee service hours, and personal in-kind training from our executives and other business leaders to help the nonprofit improve their business, increase fundraising goals, board strategy and other in-kind professional services.
