The majority of our team are San Diego natives, so we feel it is important to give back to the community that raised us.

Nativity Prep Academy

Nativity Prep Academy is a middle school and college-preparatory program that provides education and guidance for students from under-resourced families who will be the first generation to graduate college.

Larry and Larry III have been closely involved with Nativity Prep for several years, and in 2023, Curran became a student mentor. The same year, in the fall of 2023, our team was given the opportunity to sponsor a giveaway on one of the holes during their annual golf tournament.

Larry, Larry III, and Curran participated in the event, as well as other advisors in our office and our local partners.  The proceeds from this event were used to support the operations of Nativity Prep Academy and help provide scholarships to their students.

The University of San Diego

After graduating from The University of San Diego in the spring of 2020, Curran has taken every opportunity possible to give back to the school community. Over the last few years, he has gone back to speak on campus several times and in the fall of 2023, he volunteered to be a student mentor.

Through the USD mentorship program, Curran was matched with a senior studying finance and real estate. Over the next few months, they met frequently, and he provided her insights and guidance as she refined her career interests and began applying for jobs. As she started interviewing, they worked together to prepare and develop strategies on how to approach these conversations.

In the future, he is looking forward to providing mentorship to other USD students while also providing his current mentee any support she needs as she transitions from college to her first job.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network.  They make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers ("Bigs") and children ("Littles"), ages 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country.

Larry III first got involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters in 2019 when he became a Big, acting as a mentor for the next three years.  Since then, he has been involved with both the Young Professionals committee and the organization committee for the Annual Golf Marathon which raises about $300,000 every year to support Big/Little matches here in San Diego.

Annual San Diego Food Bank Office Food Drive

Every year, in partnership with The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, our office, the La Jolla Branch of RBC Wealth Management, puts on an annual food drive.

Recently, participating in these kinds of food drives has become more important than ever, as according to the San Diego Hunger Coalition, of San Diego County’s nearly 3.3 million residents, 830,000 are estimated to be nutrition insecure.

Our team and office are proud to play our part each year helping feed local San Diego families.
