Sereno Group Announces New “1% For Good” Community Philanthropy Program

LOS GATOS, CA—16 October 2012. Sereno Group announced the launch of their new “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 will be organized and directed by committees within each respective Sereno Group office. This structure allows each office the opportunity to choose local organizations and will allow their philanthropic contribution to have a direct impact on 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.

“The idea of ‘1% for Good’ originated in our Santa Cruz office with a group of agents who wanted to do more for their local community,” said Chris Trapani, Founder of Sereno Group, “I believe it is an incredible extension of our core values to be a company that is intertwined and involved with the communities we serve. ‘1% for Good’ offers a way for the entire company to participate in organizations who are making a positive impact in the world.”
