First Federal designates the majority of our contributions and local sponsorships to organizations that share in our focus on the local community.
Our priority concentrations for community outreach are:
Well-Rounded Education and Financial Literacy
We know that a strong education is vital to any future. We support initiatives for every age and area of study, as well as building solid financial literacy among students. We partner with local schools, HeadStart programs, and local colleges to help fund special projects.
Community Reinvestment and Development
Driving community reinvestment and development is key to maintaining vibrant communities. First Federal promotes and supports activities throughout our communities that improve economic development and quality of life for low to moderate income communities.
Improving the Health and Welfare of Families
We are a strong advocate of building healthy families through supporting community wellness programs, medical research, domestic violence shelters and area food banks. This is a focus that is dear to our heart as a company as well as individual employees.
Community Sports Programs
Participation in team sports fosters positive attitudes, collaboration and respect – all of which are important life skills. First Federal supports regular seasons for schools, recreational departments, and sports booster clubs. (Unfortunately due to the multitude of teams and star individuals, we are unable to contribute to travel teams, post season tournaments or individual competition.)
