Latinos@VMware Social Justice Fund
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, our Latino POD wants to benefit the broader Latino community during this very challenging time. Our livelihoods depend on essential workers during this pandemic. Latinos are three times as likely to contract COVID-19 as our Latino community is often in the frontlines. Our fund supports Latino essential workers impacted by COVID-19 and four other important social justice causes, including: 1. Latino Community Foundation, 'Love Not Fear Fund' to help Latino essential workers impacted by COVID-19. 2. AltaMed Foundation, 'La Linterna’ program provides primary care and trauma-focused mental health resources to kids separated from their families at the border. The team is seeking to double the number of kids they serve. 3. Latinas in Tech supports Latinas internationally to thrive, innovate and lead in tech as well as those pursuing a career in tech. 4. Hispanic Scholarship Fund gives scholarships to Latino college student and is also the nation’s largest non-profit organization supporting Latinos pursuing higher education. HSF helped at least two of our VMware employees pay for college. 5. United Latinos is a community organizing network committed to building power for the poor and marginalized through conversations about equity issues and exploration of the issues that can benefit those historically marginalized. We at VMware have an awesome community of change makers. Let’s come together as a VMware family to make change and support the Latino community through this very difficult time. Please make a one-time contribution or set it up as monthly contribution and support our Latinos@VMware Social Justice Fund. Thank you!

In the spirit of taking action, Bank team members have come together to find a fun and healthy way to support the Black Lives Matter movement. Join us in a virtual 5K run, walk, or bike Saturday, July 18 or Sunday, July 19. What is a virtual 5k? Don’t worry, we’re not asking you to run on GoToMeeting. Participants who sign up for a virtual race register online and simply choose their own starting line, whether it's a treadmill or a neighborhood street, run the race distance – 5k or 3.1 miles, and upload their finishing time. To register, simply make a donation of $25 or more to the 5k Run for Change fund on Bright Funds. Your donation or “registration fee” will be matched and distributed to local organizations and charitable initiatives aimed to support Black lives and communities. You can choose to run, walk, or bike on Saturday, July 18 or Sunday, July 19 and track your metrics on your favorite app. Make sure to track your time and send your results to tadessem@fhlbsf.com to compare your results with other team members participating in the 5k! The goal of this event is to get people thinking, get people talking, and get people moving!
