The First Financial Foundation

Since 1994, First Financial Federal Credit Union has supported the Monmouth & Ocean County communities with the Erma Dorrer Scholarship Program. Today, that program has been extended into the First Financial Foundation to assist charitable organizations and it supports a variety of local programs within our community, such as classroom grants and more.

Holiday Food & Gift Drives 2023

'Tis the season! We've once again partnered with local non-profit organizations to help families in need in our community.
Beginning on Monday, 11/20/23 our branches will serve as collection sites for the following items during business hours:
  • Non-perishable food items that will be donated to Fulfill of Monmouth & Ocean Counties. Food donations will be collected through Monday, 12/18/23.
  • New, unwrapped family games (up to age 12) or new reusable insulated water bottles (teens ages 13+) which will be donated to the YMCA of Greater Monmouth County. Game and reusable water bottle donations will be collected through Wednesday, 12/6/23.
  • New or gently used coats for all ages, which will be given to the Jersey Cares Coat Drive. This drive is for new or gently used coats only - hats, gloves, scarves and other clothing items will not be accepted. Coats will be accepted at all branch locations until Friday, 1/5/24.
Thank you for your generosity and Happy Holidays!

*Due to COVID-19, we were unable to hold in person events and employee fundraisers in order to offer classroom grants. We hope to be able to offer our classroom grant program again very soon - any announcements about future call for entries will be added to this webpage as soon as information becomes available.
