Get More Involved
We offer opportunities to expand your community interests, deepen your knowledge of local nonprofits and increase the impact of your giving.
We periodically host events where you can meet one another and share ideas about your philanthropic plans and goals. Some of these events are purely social, while others are centered on particular topics or timely community issues.
Personalized Site Visits
If you would like to visit nonprofit service providers to further understand an organization’s programs and strategies or to assess how your donation might make a difference, we are happy to arrange a personalized tour.
Panel Discussions with Local Experts on Important Community Issues
We periodically convene experts in their field for panel discussions on important community issues, e.g., homelessness, teens, civic engagement and the environment. If you are interested in a particular issue, please let us know so we can invite you to participate.
We are happy to meet with you and any family members to discuss how your philanthropy may be passed from one generation to the next. You can create a youth-advised fund to facilitate community giving from your child, grandchild or a young person close to you.
Please contact Miguel Ruelas at 707.303.9619.
