Posted by Kathleen Kowal — November 7, 2013

1383859283Sereno Group was named one of the top 50 philanthropic corporate organizations in Santa Clara County for 2012 by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Sereno Group’s recognition was the direct result of their 1% for Good movement started mid-year 2012.

Sereno Group was joined on the top 50 list by The Sobrato Organization, Cisco Systems, Intel, Applied Materials, and Oracle, as well as other luminary Silicon Valley corporations. SVBJ notes that the top 50 corporate givers jumped by 29.8% to $102.7 million from the previous year.

“We are so tremendously honored and humbled to be recognized for our 1% for Good movement,” said Chris Trapani, Founder and CEO of Sereno Group, “This award is a testament to the great Realtors we work with. The 1% for Good was started by agents looking for a way to articulate our core value of community first. To think that our relatively smaller company with 235 Realtors would be sharing the same air as The Sobrato Organization, Oracle, eBay, and other longstanding, iconic Silicon Valley organizations is incredible.”

The 1% for Good is an office specific, agent driven, grassroots movement that donates to local non-profit, community minded organizations. To date, 1% for Good has donated to such local organizations as Grind for Hunger, CancerCare Point, Magical Bridge Project, Paralyzed Veterans, Saratoga Senior Center, and Lacy of Santa Clara County, among others.
