Who Does The CFO of The Year Awards Benefit?
Since the beginning, the CFO of the Year Awards have benefited Larkin Street Youth Services, whose mission is to end youth homelessness by, “Offering an innovative and award-winning model of housing, education, employment and health services” to homeless and at-risk youth.
To date, the event has raised nearly $6 million dollars for this much-needed nonprofit organization.
“One of our core values at CorEdge is excellence, and within that value is committing our time and energy to support our local community,” said DeLynn Senna, Co-Founder of CorEdge. “As Co-Founders of CorEdge, Catrina Simbe and I strongly believe in supporting endeavors within our community. I sit on the board for Girls Inc. of Alameda County, whose mission is to inspire girls to be ‘strong, smart and bold,’ and Catrina founded Tyler’s Grace Foundation, which helps families with life threating cancer, create lasting memories. Being a sponsor for the Bay Area CFO of the Year Awards, which not only recognizes CFOs but also supports ending youth homelessness, is another way we can help make a difference in our community.”
