North Berkeley Wealth Management provides direct financial support, volunteer hours, and professional services to organizations doing valuable work in our community. We believe that prosperity is not defined solely by individual achievement but by the overall well-being of entire communities. We work as a firm and as individuals to contribute to those things which connect us all.

Our Vision

A community alive with connection and stewardship.

The giving program includes work with community partners, firm and individual employee donations, pro-bono services, and sponsorships. Our giving target is 1% of yearly revenue.
