Charity

Because life is about so much more than money, LifeFirst Financial donates 5% of profits or $5,000 each year to charity. Because we couldn't do this without our clients, they participate in choosing the charity. Each year, they cast their ballot for one of three choices selected by LifeFirst Financial. Looking back, here is how our charitable donations have been given:
