First Federal grants program will reopen
Marshall Rocky Wade, president and CEO of First Federal, has announced the reopening of its Community Grants program.
For a number of years First Federal has provided grants to charitable organizations in Yamhill County for special projects and other non-operational needs. The grants range from $1,000 to $10,000. The first deadline for grant applications is Jan. 3, and will be considered quarterly after that. All grant requests are reviewed by a four-member committee comprised of a First Federal officer, a board member, an employee and a customer. A complete list of funded projects, as well as an application, is available on First Federals website at www.firstfedmcm.com/home/home/community/grant.
We are proud to be part of this community and we want to help our charitable organizations continue with the valuable work they do, Wade said.
The Community Grants program is part of First Federals ongoing commitment to improve the Yamhill County community through the support of charitable organizations, according to a press release. Since the program began in 1999, First Federal has awarded nearly $2 million to Yamhill County charitable organizations through its branches in Newberg and McMinnville.
