About Community Grants
2021 Application Deadlines: March 31, June 30, September 30, December 31
Since 1999, more than $763,079 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 Relations Officer. 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. Generally, operational grants are not awarded.
Please email First Federal's Community Impact Coordinator or call (503) 435-3214 with questions or to discuss your grant request before submission.
