In its third consecutive year, the program is a key component of First Foundation’s corporate philanthropy initiative. “Supporting Our Communities” is designed to help build the strength and impact of local non-profits by offering a powerful combination of cash grants along with consulting expertise from First Foundation’s team of professionals.

“We began the program with a desire to give back to the communities we serve and it has been an honor to support so many wonderful local nonprofits in a meaningful way,” said Scott F. Kavanaugh, Chief Executive Officer of First Foundation. “This initiative is an important aspect of our commitment to corporate philanthropy and we are excited to be able to extend our support for another two years.”

Since its inception in 2012, First Foundation’s “Supporting Our Communities” has provided cash grants and in-kind consulting services valued at over $2 million to selected nonprofits. In total, it has served over 40 organizations to date. Recipients have included Human Options in Irvine, the Oceanside Museum of Art, the Imperial Valley Food Bank, Pasadena Child Development, Women In Film in Los Angeles, Grant a Gift Autism Foundation in Las Vegas, the Idyllwild Arts Foundation, and Communities in Schools of Los Angeles.

In addition to serving the non-profits in Orange County, Los Angeles, Pasadena, Coachella Valley, Imperial Valley, San Diego County, and Las Vegas, First Foundation has plans to launch this initiative in Hawaii, its newest market given the announced and pending merger with Pacific Rim Bank.
