Commitment to the Community

We are committed to developing deeper partnerships with nonprofits across affordable housing, the arts, education and economic development.
In supporting our communities, we hope to encourage more dialogue around giving, to spark fresh ideas about how our financial resources and our hours can change people’s lives for the better, and to be more aware of what nonprofits really need. 

We believe that donating time, money and knowledge to those who are best placed to make a difference to the lives of many is the right thing to do. 

It truly is a privilege to serve our communities.
Proudly investing in our communities
Operation Hope

Operation HOPE

Since 1994, we have supported Operation HOPE, the leading global provider of financial literacy and economic education programs for low- and moderate-income youth and families in underserved communities. Founded in 1992 by John Hope Bryant with the mission to eradicate poverty and establish “silver rights” – the right to financial literacy, access to capital, and equity of opportunity for the underserved – Operation HOPE has aided over 2.5 million individuals and directed more than $1.8 billion in private capital.  

As a HOPE Partner, First Republic supports Project 5117 – a multi-year, four-pronged approach to combating economic inequality and creating economically stabilized communities. Through this initiative, HOPE is helping young people learn how to take control of their financial futures and empowering adults through programs that raise credit scores, encourage entrepreneurialism and facilitate homeownership.
