First Light Asset Management is committed to giving at least 10 percent of our net profits to charitable organizations. Areas of focus for our giving include organizations that improve the health and well-being of children, the elderly, needy families and emerging nations. In addition to providing monetary support, the First Light team lends its time and talents to charitable organizations through on-the-ground volunteering and serving on various boards and committees.

Here is a sampling of organizations we are proud to have supported:
