This past November, Hellman & Friedman, a global San Francisco headquartered private equity firm, selected JCYC to be one of their company’s three end of year fundraising campaign beneficiaries. Hellman & Friedman sought out a San Francisco Bay Area based non-profit working with children and youth from communities of color. Fortunately, JCYC was an organization that repeatedly appeared throughout their research. Given the breadth of programs the organization offers, Hellman & Friedman selected JCYC to be a beneficiary of Hellman & Friedman’s “Giving through the Generations” end of year fundraising campaign. In addition to JCYC, two other non-profits were selected who serve the adult and senior populations.
Hellman & Friedman’s community and network raised an astounding $12,450 for JCYC through 31 donations! Hellman & Friedman’s generosity did not stop there – the company also matched the $12,450 raised, which brought the total raised to $24,900! Funds from this campaign will support JCYC’s Chibi Chan Preschools who continue to navigate the many challenges of providing child care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Hellman & Friedman team, community, and network believe that individuals and businesses should all strive for – thoughtfulness, selflessness, warmth, and solidarity – even during the tough times we continue to face. JCYC is incredibly grateful for the extraordinary generosity of Hellman & Friedman and their demonstration of leadership as stewards of generosity and solidarity in our community.
