LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Signature Estate and Investment Advisors, LLC (SEIA), a full-service wealth management firm headquartered in Southern California, announced today that the following charities were selected for the firm's "Signature Fund for Giving" in 2017: A Place Called Home, Children's Hospital of Orange County, Toberman Neighborhood Center, and Second Story. The Signature Fund for Giving, SEIA's donor-advised fund, donated a total of $60K this year.
"Philanthropy is a cornerstone of SEIA's culture. We consider serving families to be our highest calling so, in that spirit, we've partnered with four organizations committed to helping children in need," said SEIA President and CEO Brian Holmes. "Each of these charities has demonstrated both a passion for bettering the lives of young people, and the requisite to effect meaningful change. We're proud to provide financial support to these nonprofits as a means of helping them advance their respective missions, and making a profound difference in the communities they serve."
The four charities honored by the fund this year vary in terms of cause, but are each oriented around serving children:
- A Place Called Home: A community center in South Central Los Angeles, offering educational programs, counseling, mentorship, and after-school activities to underprivileged children and young adults in the surrounding area.
- Children's Hospital of Orange County: A leading regional pediatric healthcare network, encompassing many primary and specialty care clinics, more than 100 additional programs and services, a pediatric residency program, and four institutes for children's heart, neuroscience, orthopedic and cancer research.
- Second Story: A Vienna, Va.-based community organization for at-risk children of all ages, providing assistance and shelter to homeless youth, teens in crisis, young mothers, and more.
- Toberman Neighborhood Center: A San Pedro, Calif..-based community organization, offering Harbor Area individuals and families services such as academic support for children, case management, crisis intervention, outpatient counseling, and counsel for homeless prevention and tenant rights.
"Of all the corporate partners we work with, SEIA's commitment to our community and their enthusiasm for the work we do makes them truly stand out," said A Place Called Home Executive Director Jonathan Zeichner. "Not only does the firm support us financially, but their leaders also serve on our Leadership Council and actively participate in our events. In fact, with SEIA's help, 81 young people will attend college this year, many of whom are the first in their family to do so. Like A Place Called Home, SEIA sees the tremendous potential in these children to make positive changes in their lives, in the community, and in the world."
