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.”
