Lauren is a proud board member of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties Charitable Foundation. The goal of this agent-funded program is to support local organizations that promote health, education, community and the environment. The chapters in San Diego, Orange Country, Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara are fully funded by real estate agent donations to support the communities where they do business. More than 1,000 grants have been provided in excess of $5 million raised since the Foundation’s inception.
Your Golden Ticket was founded by Jack (12), Ryan (12) and Marley (9) Woods with the vision to provide those less fortunate with opportunities to have interesting, fun and unique experiences by providing tickets to attend live events (e.g. sporting, concerts, theater) or gain access to experiences (e.g., amusement parks, museums, airline travel) that will create lasting memories. Lauren is on the Board of Directors and excited to be a part of this growing movement of youth-to-youth inspiration.
Cycle for Survival is the national movement to beat rare cancers. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised more than $100 million through its signature indoor team cycling events across the U.S. to help fund pioneering rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), which owns and operates Cycle for Survival. 100 percent of every donation funds rare cancer research; every dollar is allocated within six months of the events. Together with the movement’s founding partner, Equinox, Cycle for Survival has supported innovative clinical trials, research studies, and major research initiatives. Lauren is a veteran team captain, raising funds and riding each year with 12 of her like-minded colleagues and friends.
The Family Philanthropy Club
The Family Philanthropy Club (FPC) was born out of the desire to help Temple Isaiah families engage in deep, meaningful and sustainable partnerships with non-profit organizations concerned with a variety of issues facing Los Angeles, including, but not limited to, hunger, homelessness, child and teen welfare and sustainability. The ultimate goal of the FPC is to establish deep connections between communities that are close geographically but are worlds apart economically, socially and religiously, to open our children’s hearts and minds to issues and struggles beyond their own backyard, and to provide a forum for Temple Isaiah families to do this work together.
