November 29, 2022

First Foundation Inc. today announced that it has awarded $635,000 to 45 nonprofits, including Pace Collier and Pace Hillsborough, across its markets through its ‘Supporting Our Communities’ philanthropy initiative.

The recipient announcement comes on GivingTuesday to honor the independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the 10th anniversary of First Foundation’s ‘Supporting Our Communities’ initiative,” said Scott F. Kavanaugh. “This year’s recipients include nonprofit organizations in our newly entered markets in Florida and Texas, in addition to expanding our support to a larger number of total organizations throughout our footprint. As the organization continues to expand, we strive to stay close to the principle of remaining connected to the communities in which we live and serve. We work to develop meaningful relationships with these local nonprofit partners who are making a significant impact in their communities.”

The goal of the program is to drive community growth and sustainability in low-and moderate-income communities through small business development, entrepreneurship, access to affordable housing, and financial literacy education.
