LOS GATOS—14 April 2013. Sereno Group’s Los Gatos office announced Music for Minors as their 2nd quarter recipient for their 1% for Good philanthropy campaign. During the months of April through September, the Sereno Group Los Gatos team will be pledging 1% of their gross commissions to Music for Minors in support of their programs.
As a result of diminishing state funding of education, Music for Minors was founded in 1976 by Grace Johnston and Dr. G.G. Fitzmaurice with the mission of providing sequential, standard-based music education programs through kindergarten to fifth grade throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. Through their music programs, Music for Minors has introduced and educated more than 15,000 children since their founding.
“Music should be an integral part of a child’s early education,” said Natasha Barringer, Realtor at Sereno Group Los Gatos, “Through music, children can learn to connect to each other socially, gain cultural awareness and build confidence through self-expression. I nominated Music for Minors because they seek to ensure that all children, regardless of their socio-economic position, are exposed to this important form of art.”
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.
