Each year, we sponsor an employee donation match program and encourage participation so we can maximize our charitable giving and impact. Our employees nominate three local charities for our annual holiday giving campaign — causes that include nonprofit organizations supporting the homeless and hungry, as well as child and animal welfare programs.
We don’t just donate to causes; we also get actively involved. Recently, we’ve started supporting the Serenity House in Oakland, California, a retreat for women in need. Together, we did a “Dear World” photo shoot where both Serenity House residents and TPGers were encouraged to write down what they felt. We also did a team-building shopping day for the women and wrapped all of their gifts for the holidays. Needless to say, the relationship is very special to our company and we look forward to future events with the organization.
Finally, TPG is pleased to be involved with Notes & Words, an annual fundraiser featuring well-known writers and musicians. The event benefits UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, and TPG hosts a VIP tent complete with cocktails, fabulous food, décor by Dalton Fine, dancing, and hobnobbing with some of the stars! You can read more about the event here on our blog.
TPG chose the following deserving organizations for our 2015 holiday donations.
ECPAT-USA is the leading anti‑trafficking policy organization in the U.S. They work with companies in the tourism, hospitality, conference and meeting industries, or companies that have a large traveling base, who are in a position to help end the commercial sexual exploitation of children.
EBSC is dedicated to offering sanctuary, solidarity, support, community, organizing assistance, advocacy, and legal services to those escaping war, terror, political persecution, intolerance, exploitation, and other expressions of violence.
NIAD Art Center’s visual art program promotes meaningful independent living by artists with disabilities, while they redefine contemporary art, and gain a sense of pride from learning a craft and profession of their own.
