Building a Foundation For Better Community Connection
At The Patio Group, we firmly believe in translating corporate success into community benefit. In 2019, we established The Patio Group Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to identify and leverage partnerships between non-profits, government agencies, and for-profit organizations in the San Diego community, resulting in a greater philanthropic impact on the city that we all love. Focusing especially on the needs of agencies working to help at-risk or underserved youth, the Foundation identifies and addresses community needs by building strong cross-sector collaborations around a shared civic vision, rather than by providing limited direct services.
One such collaboration is Partners for Student Success. This partnership between The Patio Group Foundation, San Diego Juvenile Court, and University of San Diego School of Law was established to coach parents to become educational advocates for at-risk kids. The Patio Group Foundation is also a strong supporter of Pro Kids | The First Tee of San Diego, whose mission is to challenge underserved youth to excel in life by promoting character development, life skills, and values through education and the game of golf.
