Sereno Group is pleased to announce that the company has risen to #26 (up from #29 last year) in the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Top Corporate Philanthropists. Diane Schmitz, committee lead for the Los Altos office, accepted the award at the recent commemoration event. The company is honored to be part of this civic minded group that includes The Sobrato Organization, the San Francisco 49ers, eBay and NetApp.
This past year, Sereno Group formed partnerships with both the Community Foundation Santa Cruz and Los Altos Community Foundation to increase its impact and ability to network with other nonprofit organizations.
The company also took part in launching the Habitat For Humanity Bridge Housing Community Project with a collaborative grant from our Los Gatos, Saratoga and Willow Glen offices of $50,000. The project will provide 40 Emergency Sleeping Cabins (ESC’s) for transitional housing and HomeFirst will be onsite providing support services to help individuals transition to long term housing. This project is a unique collaboration between the Nonprofit, Private and Public Sector.
Since 2012, Sereno Group’s agent driven 1% For Good initiative has been able to contribute to 193 philanthropic organizations throughout Silicon Valley and the Santa Cruz coastal communities
