(NASDAQ: FFWM), a financial services company that provides investment management, wealth planning, consulting, trust, insurance, and banking services primarily to high-net-worth individuals and businesses through its two subsidiaries, First Foundation Bank and First Foundation Advisors, today announced that it will continue its Supporting Our Communities initiative into 2016.

“We seek to make an impact on the lives of the underserved by providing professional guidance to the organizations that are designed to provide support and care for those less fortunate.”

Beginning its fourth year, First Foundation's program has awarded $2.5 million in funding and in-kind services to charities located in Southern California, Las Vegas, Hawaii and, beginning in 2016, extends the program into Northern California. The purpose of the initiative is to help charitable organizations increase their capacity for sustainable growth.

“The Supporting Our Communities initiative has been an important program for us. It is a way to give back, both as a firm and as professionals who are deeply committed to the well-being of the communities in which we work and live,” said Doug Freeman, Executive Vice President, Director of Trust Services and Consulting. “We seek to make an impact on the lives of the underserved by providing professional guidance to the organizations that are designed to provide support and care for those less fortunate.”
