Philanthropy is an important part of our mission, and we are proud to sponsor the following organizations:
LACY (Legal Advocacy for Children and Youth):
Legal Advocates for Children & Youth (LACY) advances the legal rights of children and youth, empowering them to lead healthy and productive lives. They listen to, advise, and advocate for the children in our community to ensure their voices are heard and their rights are protected.
- Free and confidential legal assistance to children and youth in juvenile dependency, family law, probate guardianship, education matters and numerous other practice areas
- Advocacy to improve court and community systems designed to protect and promote child welfare
- Workshops to educate youth, parents, caregivers and members of the community about issues impacting child welfare and legal rights
Millions of children in developing countries suffer from untreated clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly and aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. Smile Train is an international children’s charity that provides free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children in 85+ developing countries. Their sustainable model empowers local doctors to provide cleft care in their own communities.
Tipping Point Community:
1 in 5 people in the Bay Area lives in poverty. Tipping Point screens non-profits rigorously to find, fund and partner with the most promising groups working to educate, employ, house and support those in need. Last year, Tipping Point helped 22,000 people get on the path out of poverty, and we’re proud to be a partner!
