At The Humphreys Group, we strongly believe in living our values, and one of our core values is generosity. Not only is giving back beneficial to our communities, but it can also enrich our lives and contribute to our overall sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.
We strive to always give back through the three Ts; time, talent and treasure.
Over the years we have consistently dedicated our time to various hands-on community organizations, but one that we keep coming back to is St. Anthony’s. St. Anthony’s is an organization that provides meals, clothing, resources, and shelter for the underserved and hungry in San Francisco. Our team has volunteered on several occasions in the dining room, serving lunch and talking with those who come to eat one of the thousands of meals served each day.
Some other organizations we have volunteered with include Native Plant Nursery in the Presidio, where we’ve repotted seedlings and pulled weeds, and Project Open Hand, where we’ve made PB&J sandwiches and sorted groceries.
It’s always a treat to be able to volunteer our time in meaningful ways that positively impact the communities we call home.
In addition to donating our time, we are lucky to have opportunities to utilize our talents by providing pro bono financial planning services to several Bay Area organizations. We work with a few different programs and centers that focus primarily on domestic violence prevention and providing safe spaces to survivors, including Shalom Bayit, San Francisco Safe House and La Casa de Las Madres.
Additionally, we participate in San Francisco Financial Planning Days, which provide an opportunity for those with financial planning concerns who haven’t had the means or opportunity to consult a professional and have their questions addressed.
Last but not least, we make contributions to nonprofit organizations on behalf of our clients to celebrate milestones in their lives, as well an an annual year-end holiday donation in honor of all our clients. The organizations we choose reflect our vision and values, as well as our commitment to women’s issues.
Past recipients have included:
- She’s the First
- Girls Who Code
- The Girl Scouts of Northern California
- San Francisco Safe House
- Raphael House
- La Cocina
- National Coalition of 100 Black Women – Oakland/Bay Area Chapter
- World Central Kitchen
- California Community Foundation Wildfire Relief Fund
- The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research
By getting out of the office and donating our time and resources, we challenge ourselves to try new things and get out of our comfort zones. Engaging with a broader slice of the community allows us to really step back and put things in perspective. In turn, we’re better able to meet our clients wherever they may be on their path to financial stability and empowerment, and to work with them to achieve their goals. To get started with us, we invite you to give us a call.
