See what our current Trustees have to say about their experience with the Foundation:
Simi Puri, REALTOR®:“Being a Trustee gives me the chance to give back to the community. It feels good to donate my time and money where I know its being put to good use. I enjoy the networking opportunities, working with a group of wonderful people, not only REALTORS® but Affiliates, members of the community and Bay East staff. It's just a great environment. Taking a few hours a month in a positive giving environment makes me feel internally happy. “
Richard Fitzmaurice, Arc of Alameda County:“The “feel good” part of being a trustee is awarding scholarships to local students heading off to college. If I had any doubts about the next generation, they were erased after interviewing the applicants; all of them were smart, well spoken, talented and involved in their communities.”
Cheers to the Future!Thank you to everyone that attended. The proceeds from this event go directly to the Bay East Foundation Scholarship program.
