The Lionakis Foundation, established in 2009, is a charitable organization dedicated to improving our communities through philanthropy and volunteerism. We support causes close to our employees’ hearts, with nominations and funding coming directly from them.

This year, we’re excited to announce Project Kinship as the recipient of the Lionakis Foundation’s first 2024 donation! Founded in 2014 by Steve Kim, Project Kinship offers support and training to individuals impacted by incarceration, gangs, and violence through hope, healing, and transformation.

Project Kinship has grown to a team of over 70 staff members with diverse backgrounds. Today, they provide a safe haven for thousands on the journey of re-entry and healing.

We recently welcomed Project Kinship to our Irvine Office for a lunch & learn session. Executive Director Steve Kim, Associate Executive Director Aaron Reyes, and Director of Programs Madeline Rodriguez shared their mission and vision with us before receiving a donation from the Lionakis Foundation.
