Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA) is committed to giving back to the community and we fulfill this commitment though the work of the Barney & Barney Foundation. Since 2009, the foundation has awarded more than $2.8 million to over 80 nonprofits.
Each year, the Barney & Barney Foundation holds three events in order to raise awareness and provide grants to local nonprofits. In total, the Barney & Barney Foundation awarded $260,000 in grants to nine nonprofits in California this year.
Rock the Foundation Benefit Concert
On September 29, 2017, MMA hosted the 8th Annual Rock the Foundation benefit concert featuring cover band Liquid Blue. Attendees also enjoyed great food, drinks, a fun green screen photo booth and much more at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Home Start and Alzheimer’s San Diego each received $35,000 and Foundation of the Children of the Californias and Access Youth Academy both received $20,000 to further their mission.
Bay Area Golf Tournament
Our 6th Annual Bay Area Golf Tournament took place on October 30, 2017 at Orinda Country Club. Everyone who came out reports having a great time for two great Bay Area nonprofits. George Mark Children’s House was awarded a $50,000 grant to support their work. George Mark is a medical facility that provides care in a home-like setting for children. The foundation also awarded YES Nature to Neighborhoods $25,000, which will help fund their nature programs for youth, adults, and families.
Orange County Golf Classic
The 6th Annual Orange County Golf Classic at Dove Canyon Country Club was a big success too, with a record number of golfers and sponsorships. On December 4, 2017, the foundation donated a total of $75,000 to three inspiring organizations: Laura’s House, St. Anne’s, and Second Harvest.
Colleagues in San Diego, Orange County, and the Bay Area also volunteered with three of our grant recipients this fall, beautifying three houses that benefit people in the local community. To learn more about our volunteer efforts this year, click here.
