At Matheny Sears Linkert & Jaime, LLP we believe we have a duty to serve others to the best of our ability. Through donations to worthy charities and sponsorship of activities serving the underprivileged, we give back to the community in which we live, work and serve.
Providing Quality Education
The firm has long been a sponsor of the Cristo Rey Network, an organization that assists underprivileged teens attending inner-city high schools. Matheny Sears has a history of hiring students from the program and supporting them in their journey to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to rise above their current circumstances.
Every year, our students in the program are accepted to top tier universities and we do everything we can to help prepare them for their higher education experience. Throughout the years, many students have returned to work with us in full-time positions.
Additionally, Matheny Sears regularly sponsors numerous dinners to help provide funds for the Cristo Rey Network’s scholarship program, as well as other events, such as Cristo Rey High School’s Annual Crab Feed. All proceeds from the Crab Feed benefit the school’s athletic program.
The firm’s dedication to helping students receive a quality education has also led to its regular sponsorship of the Annual Bob Moretti Memorial Golf Tournament. Bob Moretti was a former Speaker of the California State Assembly and this tournament held in his honor funds well-earned scholarships to college students associated with the Capitol.
Supporting Inclusion & Diversity
Matheny Sears believes in supporting programs benefiting women and children. Our team is a longtime contributor to The Ronald McDonald House Charities and have proudly sponsored the Women Lawyers of Sacramento’s ArtFest, which funded grants benefitting local charities and scholarships for law students. The firm also sponsored a team for the Susan G. Komen Sacramento Race for the Cure. In addition, the firm makes regular contributions that provide services to battered women.
The firm has also served as a children’s sponsor at the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children) Lawyers Helping Kids fundraising event. CASA is an organization that provides many services to children in the court system, including giving them a voice in the courtroom and an advocate for their best interests.
Our Global Reach
Matheny Sears’ dedication to improving the lives of persons in need extends beyond the local community. The firm is a proud supporter of Lamp for Haiti. Founded in 2006, Lamp for Haiti is a not-for-profit organization that delivers health care and humanitarian assistance to the community of Bwa Nèf in Citè Soleil, Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Bwa Nèf is one of the poorest communities in the Western Hemisphere and Lamp for Haiti provides Bwa Nèf’s citizens with necessary medical care and tools to improve their quality of life so that they may become self-sustaining. Lamp for Haiti currently cares for more than 13,000 persons a year and hopes to eventually expand its operations to other parts of Haiti.
