Outreach in Action Spotlight
Community service is a core value celebrated and encouraged at SSF. On June 24, 2016, we spent our Annual All-Hands Day at the Guadalupe River Park doing park clean-up as a part of a firm-wide celebration of giving back to the community..
SSF also hosts an annual “All Hands Volunteer Day” each June where the firm shuts down for the day, and leverages their large employee base to volunteer with a local nonprofit. In the past few years we have helped: Sunflower Hill Hagemann Ranch (2017), Guadalupe Parkway River (2016), Alameda Point Collaborative (2015), St. Vincent de Paul (2014), The Oakland Zoo (2013), and ValleyCare Hospital (2012).
40th Anniversary $40 a Day Initiative
To help celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are supporting a different nonprofit each week for 2017 and donating $40 a day to that charity. So, how do we pick which charities? Our money has always followed our people. Each nonprofit we are supporting is a nonprofit one of our employees is personally involved with. We not only support the community, but the passions of our employees.
