CRYSTAL COVE CONSERVANCY (CRYSTALCOVE.ORG)
Rooted in the notion that Crystal Cove State Park is an ideal outdoor classroom for cultivating young environmentalists, Crystal Cove Conservancy is dedicated to protecting this rare piece of California’s history through a unique social enterprise model working in partnership with California State Parks. Revenue generated by cottage stays and food service at Crystal Cove is channeled back into cottage maintenance, park improvements and education and conservation initiatives.
Through our subsidiaries, Crystal Cove Beach Cottages and Crystal Cove Management Company, The Conservancy re-invests in protecting and preserving the entirety of Crystal Cove State Park. This social enterprise model allows us to develop innovative educational programs that expose students and visitors to the benefits of science and environmental literacy while supporting the preservation of miles of precious California coastline, stewarding thousands of acres of native habitat, and spearheading efforts to restore and preserve the historic beach cottages.
SURFRIDER FOUNDATION (WWW.SURFRIDER.ORG)
Surfrider is a network of passionate volunteers supported at the national level by legal, policy and science experts. We transform local passion into lasting protection for the ocean, waves and beaches.
Our ocean faces growing challenges from pollution, offshore development and climate change. At the same time, expanding industries, such as offshore oil drilling, threaten to crowd our ocean and degrade its health (and those who call it home!). Every day poses new threats to our oceans and beaches. Our ocean and special places must be proactively protected before they are threatened and stem the tide before further damage is done to the ocean’s health. This is precisely why Surfrider has built a network of passion-driven people who are on the ground and are the voice for our ocean and beaches. With one foot in the sand and the other in the water, Surfrider is the only non-profit organization who is 100% focused on our coasts.
THE HARVEST CLUB (WWW.THEHARVESTCLUB.ORG)
We help people with an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables they cannot or would not harvest themselves and donate the food to the underserved with our volunteer harvesting teams.
Our efforts prevent a valuable, high-quality food resource from being wasted and instead, make it available to the hungry in Orange County.
FAMILIES FORWARD (WWW.FAMILIES-FORWARD.ORG)
Families Forward is a non-profit, community-based organization that provides housing, food, counseling, education and other support services to families and individuals facing homelessness in the Orange County, California area and provides programs to help such families and individuals become self-sufficient.
In addition to providing pro bono services to these organizations, we also have committed to donating two percent (2%) of our net profits to these organizations. We allow our clients to select one of these three organizations or the Environmental Defense Fund as their organization of choice and we will donate 1% of all that client’s gross revenue to the organization at the end of each year. By hiring our law firm our clients are directly putting money back into supporting their community.
We strive to be valued leaders in the community and a force for change. Whether legal, industry or community based we support a variety of nonprofit organizations through membership, board service, and financial contributions. Some of the many organizations of which we are a part are:
- George Washington Alumni Association
- Whittier Law School Alumni Association
