LOS ALTOS—16 April 2013. Sereno Group’s Los Altos office announced Partners for New Generations as their 2nd quarter recipient for their 1% for Good philanthropy campaign. During the months of April, May, and June, the Sereno Group Los Altos team will be pledging 1% of their gross commissions to Partners for New Generations in support of their programs.
Partners for New Generations was created through the Los Altos Rotary Club in 1995/96 focused on providing tutors for all grade levels and mentors to high school students in the Los Altos Mountain View School District. Partners for New Generations supports a minimum of 50 tutors each year who assist students in the Los Altos Mountain View elementary, middle, high school. The mentor program currently supports over 110 mentor/student pairs Los Altos, Mountain View, and Alta Vista high schools.
“We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to support an organization that has a direct impact in the youth of our community,” said Chris Trapani, CEO of Sereno Group, “Our Los Altos 1% for Good is very honored to be part of the Partners for New Generations’ focus on students in need, especially those where a positive mentor can make all the difference.”
In 2012, Sereno Group announced the launch of their 1% for Good charitable philanthropy program. With 1% for Good, Sereno Group has pledged to give 1% of their gross commissions to a charitable or community minded organization committed to making a positive difference in the community.
The program is organized and directed by committees within each respective Sereno Group office. This structure allows each office the opportunity to choose local organizations, with their philanthropic contribution directly impacting the local communities. Organizations will be selected on a quarterly basis by each office, with the 90 day aggregate sum of donation dollars being delivered to the chosen beneficiary organizations at the end of each period.
