Landmark Gives Back
At Landmark Vineyards, we care deeply about the communities
where our employees live, work and play. Giving back is an
important part of our company’s DNA. That’s why we offer $80,000
in Landmark Grants every year to serve schools and nonprofit
organizations in the Sonoma Valley and Russian River Valley.
In the fall of 2018, we launched the second annual Landmark
School Grants program, which directly benefits classrooms in the
area. This grant program has already funded 87 projects
supporting 74 teachers and 8,890 students. One especially
important project at Flowery Elementary in Sonoma provided
funding for art materials for an after-school club to paint a
mural, spreading hope and creativity after the October 2017
On January 1, Landmark’s Community Grants program opened
applications for 2019 grants. This program invites local
nonprofit organizations to apply for one of ten $5,000 grants.
The winning organizations were chosen by a selection committee
comprised of Landmark employees from throughout our company. One
of our favorites is the Valley Vibes Orchestra, supported by the
Sonoma Valley Education Foundation. The program brings
orchestral music to students while also helping them develop
social and academic skills, resiliency, motivation and
self-confidence. You might catch one of their frequent public
performances next time you’re in the Sonoma Plaza.
