As a company operating and thriving in the San Francisco Bay Area, Veritas embraces our long-term commitment to each neighborhood and community we represent.
Giving back is important to Veritas, and we invest in areas where we live. These are our neighborhoods, and we’re passionate about making them strong and vibrant. As a company, we make building improvements and bring in boutiques, restaurants, and shops that complement the community and add character.
Strengthening Our Communities
Veritas actively supports community groups and other nonprofit entities that are working to improve lives of those in need – economically, socially and culturally.
Veritas Volunteer Days
Our commitment to the community means taking action to make the San Francisco Bay Area a better place. Our company-sponsored volunteer program has brought us to serve at the soup kitchen at St. Vincent’s, painting and fixing the Tenderloin Housing Clinic for its residents, and even getting our hands dirty to improve Golden Gate Park.
Good Samaritan Housing
We strongly believe that an apartment is more than a roof over your head: it’s comfort, privacy and safety when you need it most. We’ve partnered with Apartment List to provide furnished apartments to families impacted by the recent California wildfires. To learn more about the wildfire relief effort, click here.
Keeping San Francisco Retail Local
We have all seen it: the local restaurant getting replaced with yet another chain shop, or the mom-and-pop that’s been around for years losing out its lease to increasing rent. At Veritas, we have partnered with small boutiques, and locally-owned shop owners to fill our retail spaces with warmth, personality, and most importantly, a feeling of community. Neighborhood staples we’ve worked with include Dog-Eared Books in the Mission, Scullery Cafe in the Tenderloin, and No.3 in Pacific Heights.
Here in the City, caring for the environment is about more than just taking out the recycling.
Veritas is passionate about reducing the carbon footprint of each and every one of our buildings. With every apartment and building renovation, we aim to implement energy efficiencies though appliance, fixture and lighting upgrades.
Veritas recognizes the importance of charitable giving by supporting organizations that help advance the common good in our community and beyond. Since the inception of our company in 2007, we have contributed to organizations who are recognized for their stellar philanthropic work and positive impact on the lives of people they serve.
Fighting Cancer with City of Hope
City of Hope is a leading independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Based in Southern California, it works with researchers in Northern California and nationally, and treats patients throughout the US and worldwide. In 2018, Veritas’ leadership team and employees joined its Spirit of Life campaign led by the Northern California Real Estate Council, helping raise over $1 million for research.
Creating Homes in Haiti with New Story
New Story, a San Francisco start-up, is dedicated to building homes for families in impoverished areas around the world. In 2017, Veritas "adopted" this organization to raise money that supported local employment, materials and homebuilding. Through the individual employee contributions and corporate matching, Veritas raised over $10,000 for New Story.
Veritas actively supports neighborhood organizations and the real estate community to improve the San Francisco Bay Area lifestyle – economically, socially and culturally. The company has supported the following groups and nonprofit entities, among others:
