Local Economy

At First Midwest Group, we believe in the power of building strong local partnerships. We value our tenants and understand the importance of maintaining positive relationships with them. Additionally, we recognize the crucial role that our vendors and contractors play in the development and upkeep of our buildings. That's why we prioritize working with local businesses and professionals who share our commitment to excellence. By fostering these relationships, we can ensure that our properties are maintained to the highest standards and that our tenants have the best possible experience.


First Midwest Group and the Puri Family have been consistent advocates for education locally and globally, recognizing the vital role it plays in shaping society. Their unwavering support for K-12 education in the region is evident in the Golden Apple Puri Family Outstanding Principal Award and the donation of seven acres of land to Rockford Christian Schools to build the Puri Residence Hall. As a result of their generosity, countless students have access to quality education and the resources necessary to achieve their full potential. The Puri School of Business at Rockford University also benefits from First Midwest Group and the Puri Family's contributions, including monetary and building gifts. These efforts demonstrate their commitment to investing in the future and helping to shape the next generation of leaders.

Hunger and Poverty

First Midwest Group is a company with a strong commitment to supporting local non-profit organizations that help combat hunger and poverty in the Rockford Region. These organizations include the Rock River Valley Pantry, Miss Carly’s, and 100 Strong. Additionally, the Puri Family and First Midwest Group have provided initial funding to Water for Dignity, an international Non-Government Organization that provides clean water to the most impoverished region in India. Water for Dignity also offers education in farming, women’s empowerment, and community preparedness. First Midwest Group's dedication to these causes shows that with the right support, we can make a significant difference in the lives of those in need.

Promise to the Community

As a company, we are committed to our core values of service, sustainability, and holistic support. Our team is involved by serving the community through volunteer work and serving on local boards. We uphold high environmental standards, sourcing materials locally, and working with vendors and contractors within our community. Throughout five global recessions, we have always stood by our hometown of Rockford, investing in the local economy and educational systems, and supporting organizations that address hunger and poverty issues.
