SEND A $25 COMMENT OF KINDNESS

For 25 years, the First West Foundation has been giving good things back to our communities – and now it’s your turn to help! From May 27 to July 20, when you say “thanks” to a registered local charity on our #CommentsOfKindness social media posts, we’ll pay-it-forward with a $25 donation* to the organization!

There’s $250,000 available to donate, so share your gratitude and tell us how a registered local charity helps your community thrive.

Plus, when you leave your comment of kindness, you’ll be entering the registered local charity you love into our draw for a $25,000 donation!
