With all of the recent government cuts to educational funding in San Francisco, schools in the area are finding themselves hard pressed to provide proper educational and extracurricular programs to its students. In lieu of this, experienced financial executive Lee Harbert has decided to offer his assistance by making charitable contributions to the George Peabody Annual Fund Drive.
The charitable organization was founded on the belief that all students deserve a well-rounded education. Aiming to raise a total of $200k this year alone, the collected funds will be put towards the educational and developmental needs of children living in San Francisco. Besides contributing to the fund with his own resources, Harbert is actively working to convince San Francisco’s privileged citizens to contribute a portion of their disposable income to the drive.
A portion of Harbert’s contributions will be put towards the purchase of new equipment for classes and extracurricular activities, with the remainder delegated towards new and better art programs in schools. For those who do not have the resources to make financial contributions but still want to help, Lee advises that they volunteer at a local school as a tutor, group activity leader or coach.
Having worked in the financial world for the past 30 years, Mr. Lee Harbert understands the value of money management. After serving as the Senior Vice President for Bank of America and Fidelity Investments, he has spent his past ten years as the Managing Director for prestigious financial services advisory firm, Griffith & Associates, LLC.
Lee resides in the San Francisco, California Bay area and is also a father to two sons, and understands how difficult it can be maintain a healthy work-life balance. And while his sons will always be his highest priority, Lee holds an influential position that requires a great deal of his time. He has gone on record stating, “Busy parents take solace in the fact that their children are receiving a top-notch education. In order to facilitate our children’s developmental growth it is imperative that we contribute whatever we can, monetary or otherwise, to our school system.”
