LifeMoves partners with leading Silicon Valley companies to create lasting impact for the most vulnerable in our community . We custom design partnerships that incorporate your company’s interests and goals. Though partnerships look and feel different, they are all designed to provide a meaningful, team building experience. Some examples include:
Aligning with a Social Cause
Alain Pinel discovered long ago that aligning its transactions with a social cause makes good business sense by helping their clients feel good about choosing Alain Pinel. Together, LifeMoves and Alain Pinel designed a multi-faceted program which enables Alain Pinel agents to donate a portion of their commission to LifeMoves . LifeMoves mails a Tribute Card to each Alain Pinel client that lets them know their agent made a gift in their honor.
Partner for the Year
After attending our Benefit Breakfast event in September, Woodruff-Sawyer named LifeMoves as its Partner of the Year for 2019. This partnership is comprised of a year’s worth of engagements designed collaboratively with the Woodruff-Sawyer team. Activities matched the interests of Woodruff-Sawyer and provide great benefit to LifeMoves. They include a unique CEO-to-CEO Lunch and Learn Event, Annual Woodruff-Sawyer Bake Sale, a service event at a LifeMoves Shelter, and corporate sponsorship of a LifeMoves event.
Demonstrate Commitment Early to New Employees
At VMware, community involvement is a corporate value and they want their employees to know it. All New Employee Orientations have a built in service component: During this time, new employees learn about VMware’s community giving program and engage in hands-on community service directly benefitting LifeMoves.
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.
