Additional Philanthropic Endeavors
While Feinstein may be the charitable founder of Feinstein & Griffin Foundation, his philanthropic endeavors extend beyond the foundation. Since 2013, Feinstein has been enthusiastically supporting The Shade Tree Organization, an organization near and dear to his heart. Throughout the years, he has been leveraging his skills and assets to provide monetary donations, as well as food and entertainment, for women and children in the shelter. Furthermore, to ensure no woman or child is without cheer during holidays, Feinstein without fail organizes holiday parties for those working and living at the Shade Tree.
His warmth and generosity have also prompted Feinstein to make substantial donations to numerous other charities throughout the years, including The Meadows School, Vegas Hospitals, All-Stars Kids, and the National Association of Black Journalists, just to name a few.
The Feinstein & Griffin Foundation is only able to make such a strong and successful impact through the support of our volunteers, community partners, and donors. Whether you can donate your time or provide other valuable resources, we are grateful for your contribution and your desire to help our future generations succeed!
