The First Financial Northwest Foundation Fund (FFNWF Fund) was created when First Savings Bank of Renton went public with its first stock offering. The board chose to partner with the Renton Regional Community Foundation to facilitate its grant program by creating two different grant funds.  The First Financial Northwest Foundation Fund generally covers requests from King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties.


The 2021 grant cycle will be open sometime this summer. Please check back in mid-June for more information.
