Who We Are


Our mission is to empower young professionals to incorporate philanthropy into their daily lives. We do this through organizing various types of events throughout the year, benefiting different charity organizations or individuals. These events include:

  • Evening affair at the Ivy Nightclub, benefiting Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)
  • “Hi-Five Party” at Analog Bar, benefiting The Community Coaching Center
  • Networking mixer, benefiting VH1 Do Something Award Finalist Organization, YALLA
  • All-City ALLiance for DonorsChoose.org, with 100% of proceeds going directly to fund local teacher initiatives
  • Guest bartending at U-31 in support of “Give Up to Give Back” campaign
  • Mission Bay beach clean-up, benefiting the San Diego River Park Foundation

We are one chapter in the national 501(c)(3) non-profit, PHILANTHRO. Outside of San Diego, you can find us in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and New York.

We have fun as a group of young people doing good for the community!
