Supporting Our Communities

Supporting Our Communities is our charitable contribution partnership. We selected 10 nonprofits this year that not only align with our philanthropic mission, but have established a long term connection to First Foundation through our employees. 

These relationships 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.
