The Gaylord-Hansen Community Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization started by the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team. We are dedicated to providing direct support and services within areas of need in the community.
Our goal is to promote awareness by seeking and identifying ways to support foster youth, children, active-duty military, veterans, and the homeless population.
In 2012, Bill Gaylord and Sam Hansen planted the foundation's roots with the main goal to give back to San Diego school kids through an annual New Shoe Event.
After seven successful years, eight southern California Elementary schools, over 5,000 new pairs of shoes, and
a whole lotta smiles, their mission started to expand.
In 2019, the Gaylord-Hansen Community Foundation was born.
Thanks to great success and growth of its main funding source, the Gaylord-Hansen Mortgage Team at loanDepot, the foundation now expands to all areas of the community.
We look forward to giving back to the community that
has given so much to us.
Our mission is simple. We want to GIVE by providing support and service to the community we love!
