Established in 1981, First Foundation was created “to provide for the extension of the ministry and outreach of the First Presbyterian Church beyond its annual operating budget.” Grants from First Foundation support local, national, and international mission endeavors, new ministry ventures, and continuing education for church members and staff. The Foundation is the primary benevolence arm of FPC and is funded by FPC's First Endowment Fund. It gives FPC the opportunity to engage in dynamic and innovative ministry, effective and essential mission work, and significant outreach to the local and global community.
First Foundation is overseen by a board of nine members who are appointed by the Session for six-year terms. This board evaluates grant requests and oversees the investment of FPC's session designated endowment funds.
