Getting Involved in Our Community

Swanson & Associates is committed to making a positive impact on our community. From volunteering to community engagement, Swanson & Associates is proud to be actively involved and support the following organizations.

PROMISES2KIDS Holiday Gift Drive

Creating a brighter future for foster children.

Promises2Kids is a leading nonprofit organization originally founded 40 years ago as the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation of San Diego County. Since 1981, Promises2Kids has responded to the needs of foster children and provided support to children removed from their home due to abuse and neglect.

Join me in supporting this incredible cause by either choosing a gift from their Amazon wish list or dropping off a new, unwrapped gift at Carmel Mountain Preschool before December 14. Let's come together and make the holidays a bit brighter for each of these 3,000 local foster children. 


The San Diego Food Bank

This year’s Swanson & Associates food drive was a huge success! Our team’s commitment to giving back to the community this Thanksgiving was met with an outpouring of support from neighbors all over Carmel Valley, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Ramona, and Poway. Together, we spent the morning picking up food donations and delivered them to The San Diego Food Bank, who partners with over 500 organizations throughout the county to help families access free and nutritious foods. This year, we were able to collect almost 800 pounds of food!

The Charitable Foundation

Through the Charitable Foundation, we know individuals and companies can make a difference. Swanson & Associates gives a portion of all their sales commissions earned to the Charitable Foundation which provides hundreds of grants to local organizations in San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles that promote health, education, community, growth, and environment.

Soroptimist International

Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.
Soroptimist was formed in 1921 in Oakland, California, at a time when women were not permitted to join service organizations. Our name, loosely translated from the Latin, means best for women. Today, we have over 25,000 members and supporters in countries across North America, Latin America and the Pacific Rim. We are one of five federations that make up Soroptimist International, which has clubs in more than 120 countries throughout the world.


San Diego Humane Society

San Diego Humane Society, an open-admission shelter, is creating a more humane world by inspiring compassion and advancing the welfare of animals and people. Our lifesaving safety net has helped San Diego become the largest city in the U.S. to keep healthy and treatable shelter animals from being euthanized. We are a private, independent, nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any other humane society or society for the prevention of cruelty to animals.


St. Judes

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
