About the Tim Griffith Foundation

The Tim Griffith Foundation helps to heal and strengthen Bay Area communities by providing support and services to those affected by addiction, violence, and loss.

In September 2004, 21-year-old Tim Griffith (pictured) was killed in a senseless and devastating act of violence.  Tim’s mother, Stacey Redman, created the Tim Griffith Foundation in 2005 to carry Tim’s memory forward.

In that time, the Tim Griffith Foundation has issued more than 60 grants to local non profits, totaling over $800,000, opened Tim's House which provides a sober living environment for young men rebuilding their lives, started the Meadowlark Retreats for grieving mothers and fathers, and funded the salary of a counselor (through Acknowledge Alliance) to support first-time juvenile offenders as they return to school.

Explore our website for more information about the Foundation and the ways we support the Bay Area community.

Gifts of Change

Some people choose to donate a portion of their holiday budget to organizations that are supporting people during this time of need in our communities.

If that is your goal, we'd encourage you to consider a donation in the "Gifts of Change" section of our auction. Here you will find a dollar amount that meets with your budget and you can dedicate the gift in honor of a loved one or in celebration of someone who has overcome a trial in life.
