Education First: A Program Dedicated to Positively Impacting Education

We are proud to work with to donate to classroom projects that will directly impact students. With the help of our clients, Education First has helped thousands of students in hundreds of classrooms across the country.

"I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to give back to a community.  I actually donated to a Chicagoland charter school and the gift was matched by Google, so through First American, a gift had double the value!  This is a great program, and a great way to recognize your values and your clients."
