Community Impact Team

With the guiding principle that giving is more than just writing a check, our community impact team ensures our giving efforts are strategic and meaningful to the organizations and causes they support.

Small businesses are an integral part of the communities we serve. We recognize this importance and provide solutions by offering a variety of lending options, allowing these businesses to continue growing and fostering the economic development of our communities. 

Our community development lending is strong and growing. Given that First Foundation Bank is primarily a multi-family residential lender, the majority of these loans focus on affordable housing; along with loans that promote economic development, provide community services targeted to low- or moderate-income (LMI) individuals, and revitalize and stabilize underserved neighborhoods.
