Philanthropy & Sponsorships Giving back to our community for over 10 years. We care about our local central valley community.

Visalia Rescue Mission
Visalia Rescue Mission (VRM) is a faith-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been serving homeless and economically disadvantaged individuals and families in Visalia and the greater Central Valley for the past 37 years. The Mission was established in 1981 by a group of community members as an overnight shelter and soup kitchen for the homeless in Visalia. Today, it has become the county’s largest privately-funded non-profit organization addressing the complicated issues of poverty, homelessness, and recovery. The Mission has a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. As they ease the suffering of hurting individuals and help them achieve independence and self-sufficiency, they build up individuals and families in the community, and as a result, the whole community benefits. All services and programs are provided free to all individuals and are funded entirely by donations from individuals, local organizations, churches, businesses, and foundations in our community.
Even though we're based in Fresno, CA, the Central Valley is our home. With Covid19 on the rise and impacting everyone, we saw the increased need for shelters and more long-term help. We're proud to support Visalia Rescue Mission.

Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. It brings together citizen scientists who volunteer to run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers and scientific researchers. Insights from these data are helping scientists to better understand biology and providing new opportunities for developing therapeutics.
We love Folding@home and donate spare computing power to help researchers study protein structures for various viruses.
