Golden State Collaborates with LIFT Foundation To Support Local Communities in Need

South Coast Metro, Calif. Oct 10, 2022:

Golden State (“firm”) is proud to acknowledge their collaboration with LIFT Foundation (“LIFT”) to help Orange County’s needy. Most recently the firm supported LIFT’s largest event, the annual golf tournament, which took place in September at Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point. This event marked the charity’s 10th tournament as well as 10 years since LIFT’s debut. Earlier in the year, Golden State also attended LIFT’s gala event, Bourbon and Bubbly, where many of the employees participated in hosting a table.

“The act of giving back is important to the executive members of Golden State as well as for the company. We feel it is our duty to support our local community. When we learned of LIFT Foundation and met with the board members, we knew our contributions would be a good fit,” says Jennifer Nahas, CMO of Golden State.

At Golden State’s annual advisor symposium, the firm announced a matching gifts program for affiliated advisors that donated to LIFT’s cause. LIFT’s Executive Director, Chris Vizzi, and original board member, Paul Manese, provided an announcement about LIFT’s outreach during the symposium.

About LIFT Foundation

The LIFT Foundation was formed to address the growing disparity between the rich and poor locally and internationally. Founded by a group of like-minded people dedicated to ending the cycle of poverty in communities near and far, the organization is focused on high impact results for adults and children facing high risk situations.
Every dollar we raised goes directly back into the communities and provides resources for those who have fallen victim to hard times. LIFT Foundation’s responsibility is to “lift” neighbors out of despair and put them back on their feet.
LIFT is a volunteer-run, non-profit 501(c)(3). Current supported organizations are Angel House, Precious Lamb, Mercy Warehouse, Project Self Sufficiency, and The Young and Brave.
