The Local Hero
50% PLANNED, 40% INVESTMENT, 10% EMERGENT
He was born and bred in the Bay Area. About half of his donations go to local organizations - education groups tackling root cause issues of inequity in Oakland, or homelessness shelters in the Mission providing care to those who need it most.
He keeps 40% of his funds in investments that support his local community. The profits he makes go back into his account, so he can give even more next year.
He also keeps about 10% of his funds for disasters and one-off donation requests. Having friends that have been affected by fires and other natural disasters, he wants to make sure he has some money set aside to help those in emergency situations.
