Hanson Bridgett supports a wide range of organizations that help the underserved in our communities. Beyond financial support, we continually seek new ways to contribute, whether it involves advising a group seeking to become a nonprofit or lending a hand on back-to-school night.

Partnerships on Key Issues

Hanson Bridgett has developed long-term partnerships with many community groups, donating funds and resources and providing legal assistance. They include the San Francisco Education Fund, a nonprofit that we advise on a variety of issues, such as employee benefit and emergency leave policies, tax matters and virtual tutoring concerns. Through the fund’s Circle the Schools program, we partnered with an inner-city elementary school to provide volunteer support, such as copying flyers and pitching in at after-school events.

At Rebuilding Together San Francisco, we recently helped rebuild a playground and create a community garden.

In addition, we have volunteered with numerous nonprofit groups, including San Francisco Law Academy, ARC of San Francisco and Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services. Examples include, sponsoring dozens of children through Head Start's annual holiday gift program and contributing gently used baby clothes for hospitals and shelters through Loved Twice. And, with SF-Marin Food Bank, we raised funds and food through the annual Food from the Bar program.
