SSF has made meaningful community involvement a core value. We believe that actively participating in building a strong social and economic community is the best way to ensure that the Bay Area, where we all live and work, continues to thrive. Our SSF Community Counts™ program helps facilitate ways for all of our partners and employees to give back to the community in ways that best fit each individual. SSF also hosts an annual “All Hands Day” where the firm shuts down for the day, and leverages their large employee base to volunteer with a local nonprofit. Each year we proudly dedicate thousands of hours and financial donations in support of many local organizations.
