SAN JOSE, Calif. - May 2, 2024 - PRLog -- Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley (BGCSV), an 80-year old leading youth development organization in Silicon Valley, has been awarded a generous $10,000 grant from the 1% For Good Charitable Foundation (, the community impact arm of Christie's International Real Estate Sereno. The grant will support BGCSV's work to deliver innovative, high-quality programming, and youth development services to thousands of young individuals, empowering them to thrive.

"This is what community building looks like," said BGCSV President and CEO Steve Wymer. "Much of life in Silicon Valley revolves around the high price of housing and the broader real estate market and this is a tough place for many to afford a home. A Sereno sign in front of a home signifies more than a listing – it symbolizes a commitment to community and we're thankful for how mindful Sereno is of the responsibility we all have to the community by their pledge to give one percent of gross commissions to community organizations. Ability is equally distributed in Silicon Valley, but opportunity is not. Sereno's investment in young people will help close opportunity gaps and we pledge that this gift will be leveraged to change lives. On behalf of the youth we serve, we're truly grateful."

Sereno's 1% For Good Charitable Foundation awards grants to local organizations actively making a positive difference in our communities. Since 2012, they have contributed nearly $6 million dollars to over 500 organizations.

BGCSV serves nearly 6,000 youth at more than 40 locations spanning from Redwood City in the north to Hollister in the south. The organization offers age-appropriate and diverse programs in: Education & Career Development, Arts & Cultural Enrichment, Technology, Sports, Fitness, & Recreation, Character & Leadership, and Health & Life Skills. Teen participants receive the support they need to explore career opportunities and become graduates of four-year colleges. They also develop social-emotional skills, access resources, and build support networks.
