The Swinerton Foundation Earthquake & Relief Effort Builds Hope From Tragedy

San Francisco, CA – March 29, 2011


Beyond being a builder, Swinerton believes that as a company and as a corporate family, we have the duty to participate in the betterment of our communities. This is not simply altruism on our part, but also an investment in the world around us. In this regard, we have extended an invitation to our employees and members of the communities in which we live and work to make contributions to The Swinerton Foundation for the Japanese Earthquake & Tsumani relief efforts and will match employee contributions to a total of $10,000. Although this tragedy is far from home, the impact is global and demands a global response.


The Swinerton Foundation has determined that its contribution will go to The American Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, and Mercy Corps. If you wish to make a contribution, please send us your tax-deductible check no later than April 15th and make your check payable to The Swinerton Foundation, indicating on the memo line that it is intended for the Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami Relief. Please send your check to:
