First Fed Foundation (formerly First Federal Community Foundation), a private charitable corporation, began making grants in 2015, thanks to a generous gift valued at $12 million from the parent company of First Fed, when the bank was converted to a publicly traded company.

First Fed’s gift underscored its commitment to continue its 100-year tradition of giving back to its communities. In that same spirit, First Fed Foundation is committed to creating broad impact that benefits low-to-moderate-income, disadvantaged, and/or marginalized persons or families in the communities in which First Fed, the Foundation’s sole donor, operates full-service branches.

Committed to supporting nonprofit, tribal, and government agencies that provide critical, timely assistance, while also building a brighter future, First Fed Foundation is proud and privileged to have contributed $6,401,500 since 2015, allocated to the following funding priorities:

$1,606,300 to organizations addressing homelessness and the availability of and access to affordable housing.
