Our Pride

In our community

Project First Rate has a proven dedication to the community in which we live, work and play. We are proud financial supporters of the United Way of Rock River Valley, and the Rockford Area Economic Development Council. We have supported the annual Festival of Lights Celebration, Labor Day Parade and 4th of July Parade for over 15 years and offered in-kind donations of labor and materials to projects such as the Starlight Theater Dome, Sharefest , and the Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens.

our initiatives

One of the core values of Project First Rate is giving back to our community. We are leaders in facilitating educational workshops, organizing the 4th of July Parade, The Labor Day Parade, and The Festival of Lights.


Another one of our pillars is donation. Our donations both monetarily and in man power to our community are far reaching. We have donated millions of dollars, and more importantly, countless hours to local projects and causes. We lend financial support to UWRRC, RAEDC, and to the Boys and Girl Scouts. We give in-kind donations of labor and materials to the YMCA, Beyer Stadium, Habitat for Humanity, The Nicolas Conservatory, Roy Gale Stadium and Sharefest.
