The FirstLight Community Foundation promotes financial literacy to empower the community to attain financial independence. The Foundation also awards yearly scholarships.

The mission of the Firstlight Community Foundation is to help youth and families in the El Paso and Las Cruces communities improve their lives by achieving financial independence.

The FirstLight Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that was founded in 2015, when the Board of Directors and Management team at FirstLight wanted to do more for and give back to our underserved communities. Through strategic analysis, the decision was made to incorporate financial literacy and scholarships as a focus for our foundation, in order to help the youth and families achieve financial independence.  

The Firstlight Community Foundation is a supporting organization to the Paso del Norte Community Foundation.
