We Give Back

Social Responsibility as a Business Practice

Give Back | Charities

I believe that business has a responsibility to the community in which it operates, large or small. For me that includes philanthropy as a foundational part. My reasons for giving back to my community are essentially: none of us achieves our goals solo. We have the benefit of our support systems in the form of family, schools, neighborhoods, larger community, business and government. Alone, we cannot possibly put into place all that we need to create the lifestyle we enjoy let alone to move beyond survival.

So I give with gratitude for what has been given me - for the helping hand, a supportive shoulder, a place to go, a patient ear, the much needed advice to help me attain my dreams.

My Favorite Charities Are:

Covenant House

They provide shelter, food, recovery and a safe, caring place for teenagers who have been abused, abandoned and homeless on the streets. They opened a shelter in Oakland in 2008 and have locations in large cities around the U.S.


Salvation Army

Their mission is to help those who need shelter, food, recovery, fellowship and hope for a better life. Their assistance is diverse as the needs of our communities. They assist those affected by natural disasters to providing help to the elderly to advocating for those caught in human trafficking.


Habitat for Humanity

They are a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization building simple, decent, affordable housing in partnership with people in need. They help people here in the U.S. as well as abroad.


CityTeam Ministries

Helping the poor and homeless and moving them toward rehabilitation - transforming lives, healing families, bring reconciliation and breaking the cycle of destructive behavior or poverty.
