Attend Our Fundraising Events

A Day at the Races

Every year we have a “Day at the Races” fundraiser at Golden Gate Fields in Berkeley, California, usually in June. This fun event is organized by long-time Board Member and Parent, Nancy Smith, who gives generously of her time to ensure its success.

Bay Area Human Race

Annually on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, an enthusiastic group of our residents and staff walk the 5K course around the Marin Center Lagoon to raise money for our organization.

Join our board of directors


Meetings are held six times a year, generally on the third Tuesday of the month at Cornerstone’s administrative office. The Board is responsible for governing the organization; participating in fundraising activities; supporting the agency by making an investment of personal experience, skills, and knowledge; and advocating for the developmentally disabled population.


We are grateful for monetary contributions, which help us provide quality care for our clients, training for employees, and capital improvements for our homes. Cornerstone Community Homes, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax deductible.
