The year 2019 marked a milestone for First Federal Community Foundation, representing ﬁve years of contributing to diﬀerence-making nonproﬁt organizations in the four counties where First Federal, the Foundation’s sole donor, operates full-service branches.
We at First Federal Community Foundation are grateful to First Federal for demonstrating both the foresight and generosity to establish our Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life and investing in the future of our communities. We are honored to carry on First Fed’s legacy of addressing the needs of our community with contributions of $3,767,500 in our ﬁrst ﬁve years.
In 2019 alone, the Foundation contributed $800,000 to organizations focused on aﬀordable housing, community support, community development and economic development. By county, $235,000 was directed to projects in Clallam County; $195,000 to Jeﬀerson County; $60,000 to Kitsap County; $165,000 to Whatcom County; and $145,000 to projects aﬀecting two or more of our target counties.
