Engage your employees in volunteer team building activities that support homeless families and individuals. Projects include interactive builds of much-needed client kits, organizing donations, or improving a facility. Learn more about corporate volunteer opportunities.
LifeMoves has three signature visibility–building events each year that provide excellent opportunities for your company to co-brand, sponsor or underwrite to get maximum exposure for all the good work you are doing in the community!
These inspiring events are purposeful investments made by the organization to promote visibility and awareness for cost-effective and long-lasting solutions for homelessness in the Peninsula/Silicon Valley region. These events also introduce the organization and its mission to new donors and volunteers, and they help raise critically needed funds for LifeMoves programs. To fully leverage any event we undertake, we work closely with our corporate partners to co-brand, create buzz through social media and attract more positive support overall for both LifeMoves and our corporate partners.
Sponsor a drive to raise funds, or to provide much needed in-kind donations, such as business clothing, diapers, formula (and other supplies for children and infants), household items, back-to-school supplies, and more. Drives are needed all year round but especially during the holidays. For more information on any of these opportunities or to suggest your own ideas, please contact Stefanie Bruggeman at email@example.com or 650-685-5880 ext. 195
The main ballroom is now at maximum capacity but you can still enjoy the program!
Please join us in the adjacent ballroom to mingle with other LifeMoves supporters, enjoy breakfast and watch the event in its entirety on a large screen.
J.D. Vance is an investor, commentator, and author of the #1 New York Times best seller Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, described by the National Review as a “brilliant book” and by The Economist as “one of the most important” reads of 2016. Ron Howard and Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment have announced plans to produce a movie based on Vance’s book.
Raised by his working-class grandparents in Middletown, Ohio, Vance graduated from Middletown High School in 2003 and then immediately enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. During his time in the Marines, he deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
When he finished his four-year enlistment, Vance enrolled at Ohio State University, where he studied political science and philosophy, and helped coordinate the university’s bipartisan voter education drive in 2008. After graduating from college, he studied at Yale Law School, where he worked at Yale’s Veterans Legal Services Clinic, providing free legal counsel to veterans of our nation’s wars in Vietnam and Iraq. Vance earned his law degree in 2013.
After a stint at a large corporate law firm, Vance moved to San Francisco to work in the technology industry. He serves as a principal at the leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm Mithril Capital, cofounded by Peter Thiel and Ajay Royan. As an investor, Vance has taken a special interest in the biotechnology industry and other transformative sectors of the economy.
In early 2017, Vance joined as a partner in AOL founder Steve Case’s venture capital company, Revolution LLC, which concentrates on bolstering entrepreneurship and disruptive, high-growth companies outside of the sphere of Silicon Valley. He also returned home to Ohio to found Our Ohio Renewal, a nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the state’s opioid crisis and bringing high-quality employment and educational opportunities to Ohioans.
He regularly discusses politics and public policy, having appeared on ABC, CBS, and FOX News, and currently serving as a contributor on CNN. Vance lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his wife, newborn son, and two dogs, where he works on his nonprofit and investment activities.
