Founded in 1990, First Foundation is a private financial firm that offers banking, estate planning, wealth management, philanthropic consulting, and trust services.
The foundation is seeking applications from nonprofits in its service area for a capacity-building initiative that will provide cash grants and in-kind consulting services.
Through its Supporting Our Communities program, the company will award cash grants of up to $5,000 and up to twenty hours of consulting services over two years to twenty nonprofits in Hawaii and California (primarily in Orange County, Los Angeles, Pasadena, the Coachella Valley, the Imperial Valley, San Diego County, and the Bay Area). Funds are intended to support the organization’s capacity-building programs.
Consulting services include support related to donor stewardship, board retreats, development planning, board building, design and development of critical policies and protocols, cash management, investment policies and practices, gift planning, and fiduciary audits.
