Today Step Up was the recipient of a $5,000k contribution check as part of the launch of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services – the first-ever lending of the Warren Buffet brand to what was formerly Prudential Realty. Congratulations to David M. Cabot, President & CEO of California Properties Southern California and Central Coast! And a huge thank you to Chair Martha Mosier and the Selection Committee of the Berkshire Hathaway Charitable Foundation! And the young Buffet’s (two grandson’s) are also showing their commitment to philanthropy through their innovative “Learning by Giving” Foundation launched in 2011.  “They try calculating the amount of social good that will come out of a program or project, just as Warren would on a return on investment.” Read more  in this article by Beth Kowitt, Fortune Magazine, Oct. 7, 2013: http://money.cnn.com/2013/09/19/news/buffetts-philanthropy-duplicate.pr.fortune/index.html
