Following the generous spirit embodied by Artisan Creative’s Founder, Jamie Douraghy, many of the Artisan staff find great ways to make a difference in the lives of others.

Here is just a sampling of what we do as individuals to support local, national, and international organizations.

Several of our staff participate in annual Susan G Komen Race for the Cure events and make regular contributions in honor of family members who have lost their lives to Breast Cancer and those who are still fighting!

One of our recruiters volunteers his time at Chrysalis to help homeless and low-income individuals get the support and resources they need to find and retain employment

One of our account managers had her wedding at the Keep Memory Alive Event Center where a large part of the rental fee for the hall will go towards Alzheimer’s and Autism Research.

In addition to our staff’s volunteer work and event participation, our team members also make regular cash donations to the following organizations:

Project Angel Food – Provide daily meals for people in Los Angeles homebound or disabled by HIV/AIDS and other serious illnesses.

March of Dimes – Helps protect against and lower the risk of birth defects by with education and research

Habitat for Humanity – Non-profit housing organization building simple, decent, affordable housing in partnership with people in need throughout the world.  One of our staff has plans to help build a house in a third world country sometime in the new few years!  We wish her the best with her goal!

Our staff members also make regular non-cash donations (clothes, appliances, books, household items, etc) to several other non-profit organizations:

Salvation Army
San Ferenando Valley Rescue Mission

We are always looking for new non-profit organizations to which we can dedicate our time, experience and resources.

Tell us about your favorite ways to give back!
