EMPLOYEE-NOMINATED CHARITIES

Season of Giving

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. Since 2012, we’ve been fortunate enough to be in a position to provide financial assistance to many outstanding charities. In 2017, the following four charities received initial contributions of $10,000 each.

Senior Access provides important support services and socialization opportunities for people with varying stages of memory loss. Unique among their programs is the Excursion Club, which serves clients with earlier stages of memory loss who are still relatively mobile. These weekly “field trips” take clients all around the Bay Area—to museums, exhibits, factory tours, musical and theatrical performances, and more—providing mental and physical stimulation, a sense of “normalcy,” and a chance to interact with peers in an understanding and supportive group environment.

The La Luz organization is a nonprofit based in Sonoma Valley. Their mission is to be a catalyst for change in Sonoma Valley through health, education, and financial security. Since the fires, they’ve focused their “Fire Fund” on critical emergency services for their clients—people who hold low-wage jobs in hospitality, landscape, healthcare, and winery businesses, and who are critical to Sonoma’s economy. These people were seriously impacted because of the loss of their homes and the loss of wages in the aftermath of the fires. And, most importantly, many of these people didn’t have insurance or qualify for government aid programs.
