We believe that it takes each and every one of us to create a strong community and that every gift, big or small, can make a big impact. This year, we’re giving back in a big way through our Season of Giving: volunteering with organizations making a difference in our communities, and giving more than $200,000 to support children and families in need.

In Oregon, Washington, and California, we’re giving away $25,000 to nonprofit partners that serve our communities! We’re asking you – our employees, members and the broader community – to help us direct those funds to organizations that are making a difference for those who need it most. In each state, we’re giving $15,000 to the organizations that receive the most votes, and $5,000 to each additional contender. Choose your region, cast your vote, and check back here in December to see how we’ve made an impact, together.

Vote In Person
Your local branch is participating too! Each First Tech branch is giving $2,000 to nonprofit partners making an impact in their neighborhood, with $1,000 going to the organization with the most votes, and $500 to second and third place participants. Stop by a branch to cast your vote and check back here in December to see how we came together to build a brighter future for our communities.

Give Back with Us
And it doesn’t stop there! We’re also engaging our employees to give back through volunteering, and providing service grants to organizations that are mobilizing communities to give back during the holiday season. Keep an eye out for our blue volunteer shirts at food banks, children’s hospitals, schools and more throughout November and December, and join us by signing up to volunteer to an organization that matters to you.

Thank you for helping us light the way for our next generation of leaders, thinkers and innovators by voting during the Season of Giving.
