Since 1999, more than $900,000 has been awarded through Community Grants, which generally range from $1,000 to $5,000 each. Grant requests are reviewed quarterly by a five-member Grants Committee made up of a First Federal officer, a board member, an employee, a customer and the Community Impact Specialist. Applicants can expect a response within four weeks of the application deadline.

Note that grant requests not selected do not remain on file, and new requests must be submitted each time. Requests for funds of less than $1,000 should be directed to a local branch for consideration.

Criteria for Funding: The organization must be a qualified nonprofit, operating within and benefiting Yamhill County. Grant awards and amounts are determined quarterly by the Grants Committee, with a focus on meeting basic human needs and helping with capital improvements or equipment. Operational or Sponsorship focused grants are not awarded.
