PALO ALTO—October 25, 2012. Sereno Group’s Palo Alto office announced Friends of the Magical Bridge Playground as the 4th quarter recipient for their 1% for Good philanthropy campaign. During the months of October, November, and December, the Sereno Group Palo Alto team will be pledging 1% of their gross commissions to FMBP in support of their programs.
Established in 2008 and based in Palo Alto, CA, Friends of the Magical Bridge’s vision is to help create a community without physical or social barriers that celebrates all of its members. Part of this vision is to provide a playground where families of all abilities can experience the joy of outdoor fun. With the city of Palo Alto’s support, FMBP has designated 1.28 acres of land in Mitchell Park and plans to build the nation’s first, fully inclusive public park and playground.
“We were looking for an opportunity to contribute directly to our community,” said Laurel Hunt Robinson, Realtor at Sereno Group Palo Alto, “In an innovative city like Palo Alto, it was surprising that none of our city’s public parks met the needs of children with disabilities. Magical Bridge is committed to the elimination of social stigmas and prejudices. As a critical foundation for physical and social development, we’re proud to support the Magical Bridge Playground and look forward to helping make their vision a reality.”
Earlier this year, 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.
