LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Signature Estate and Investment Advisors, LLC (SEIA), a full-service wealth management firm headquartered in Southern California, today announced it has raised nearly $220,000 for the firm's Signature Fund for Giving. The funds will be distributed among various charities including: A Place Called Home, Children's Hospital of Orange County, Toberman Neighborhood Center, and Second Story. In addition to this year's gift, SEIA will be making additional donations to select charities, which they will be announcing early this year.
"It is a privilege to be the leader of an organization that prioritizes giving back to our local communities, not only during the holiday season, but year-round," said SEIA President and CEO Brian Holmes. "The charities we choose to work with are extraordinary supporters of those in need with a focus on mentoring and providing for youth, a cause that SEIA strongly believes in supporting."
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.
"As a result of SEIA's support, the Toberman Neighborhood Center was able to purchase a pick-up truck to transport food donations. In 2017, our food pantry distributed more than 40,000 pounds of food, and the truck enables us to significantly increase our contribution to the community," said Toberman Neighborhood Center executive director Darlene Kiyan.
Launched in 2011, the Signature Fund for Giving was founded to support local youth in Southern California and has grown to back other national charities and causes through fundraising, employee volunteer participation and generating in-kind donations. The fund's vetting progress is rigorous, ensuring that assets are only allocated in accordance with strict regulatory standards. To date, the fund has raised more than $670,000 in monetary donations along with box experience tickets to various Staples Center events.
