Recognizing the value of giving back to her community, Kathy volunteers weekly as a tutor to at-risk students in Pasadena. She is a strong supporter of Lake Avenue Community Foundation, a faith-based non-profit organization local to Pasadena that provides tools necessary for youth to thrive academically, emotionally, economically, and spiritually. In the past, Kathy served on the Board of Visitors of the Business School at Azusa Pacific University.
Kathy has been a long-time supporter of Compassion International, an organization which exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled adults. Specifically she supports two children, one in Rwanda, the other in Kenya.
Another passion of Kathy’s is supporting Kiva, an organization that connects people, through lending, for the sake of alleviating poverty. Kiva empowers individuals to lend to an entrepreneur across the globe. By combining microfinance with the internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people connected through lending.
