Empowering lives with compassion.
Belief in our people and community.
Our people-driven culture extends beyond office walls and into our local communities. We give back wherever and whenever we can to support charities and organizations that are focused on providing people with the assistance they need.
Over the past several years, we’ve given back through our annual Season of Giving program, an employee-led initiative, and, most recently, we launched a more extensive program, Firewood Spark, that supports organizations throughout the year.
These two programs foster support in different ways and they allow everyone at Firewood the opportunity to make a difference in our community.
Firewood Spark: Pro Bono Digital Marketing
Firewood Spark is an all-year program where Firewood team members volunteer their time using their digital marketing skills, helping charitable organizations achieve their objectives online. We provide Google AdWords setup and optimization support for the $10,000 per month provided by the Google Ad Grants program, up to a total of $50,000 per month of spend.
If you’re interested in learning more about this program, please fill out the form. A Firewood team member will reach out to you via email to learn more about your organization and answer all of your questions.
Season of Giving Program: Employee-Nominated Charities
Each holiday season, our employees nominate local charities and organizations. It’s one way we can go beyond our everyday responsibilities of helping our clients and give back to our communities, both financially and through longer-term initiatives. For nearly four years, we’ve been fortunate (thanks to our success) to provide financial assistance to many outstanding charities. In 2017, the following five charities received initial contributions of $10,000 each:
Community Housing Partnership is an outcomes-focused nonprofit that fulfills its mission by developing and managing high-quality, supportive housing and providing services to homeless individuals, seniors, and families to help them rebuild their lives and break the cycle of homelessness.
The mission of Food Runners is to help alleviate hunger in San Francisco, prevent waste, and create community. Food Runners delivers over 15 tons of food a week that would otherwise be thrown away—or the equivalent of 3,000 meals a day.
Lava Mae began by converting public transportation buses into showers and toilets on wheels to deliver hygiene and rekindle dignity for the homeless in San Francisco. It has taken Radical Hospitality to the street by bringing humanity, innovation, and collaboration to the way services are delivered to those moving through homelessness.
The Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging education and research about Loeys-Dietz Syndrome and related connective tissue disorders in order to aid in its identification, diagnosis, and treatment. It also provides a support network for individuals, parents, and families affected by Loeys-Dietz syndrome.
Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider, an informed educator, a passionate advocate, and a global partner helping similar organizations around the world. Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide.
