The Western Financial Group Communities Foundation, a not-for-profit that partners with other charitable programs focusing on supporting communities where our team members and customers live and work.

Founded in 2001, as the charitable arm of the Western Financial Group, the Western Communities Foundation was created as a way for our team members to give back to our communities all year long.  Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our employees and donors we have invested over $4 Million into our communities since inception.
