The Foundation was created on the vision of helping create vibrant and healthy communities. By working in partnership with local organizations, the Foundation seeks to actively contribute to meaningful projects that make a positive and lasting impact upon community life.
The First West Foundation has a number of different endowment funds which grant to different communities and for varying projects. We don’t want to waste your time in applying for a grant if your organization or project is not a good fit for our grants. Therefore, we ask that you fill out our Expression of Interest form which will give you an opportunity to give us a brief introduction to your organization and the funding need. If your project is a good fit, we’ll invite you to apply for a grant.
