Generosity in action Inspire by example • Volunteer with passion • Enrichment of lives

Since 2012, our team has focused on enriching the lives of others by getting involved in our local community. It all started with a small nonprofit called the Gaylord-Hansen Shoe Foundation, where the main goal was to give back to San Diego school kids through an annual New Shoe Event.

We’ve only grown from there! In 2019, the Gaylord-Hansen Community Foundation was born, expanding our programs to support more people through a variety of causes and events.
