PlumpJack Foundation is proud to partner with a diverse roster of organizations in pursuit of our goals. The Foundation leadership conducts due diligence in selecting partners and beneficiaries which align with our priorities and core values.   


The san francisco cancer initiative (sf can)

The San Francisco Cancer Initiative (SF CAN) is a collaborative effort to reduce cancer in San Francisco by engaging health care systems, government, community groups, and residents. SF CAN’s success relies on the power of collective impact, or tackling an intractable problem like cancer through collaboration by public and private partners. Learn more at

Holy Family Day Home (HFDH) 

Holy Family Day Home (HFDH) is the oldest childcare center of its kind in San Francisco providing early-education child care to the children of working families. Through a combination of philanthropy and employee-driven volunteer programs, the PlumpJack Family supports HFDH throughout the year: supplying the Kindergarten class with backpacks filled with school supplies; providing Thanksgiving lunch; and mounting holiday giving trees at PlumpJack properties to purchase warm children’s clothes and gifts during the holidays.


Stanford Supportive Care Center (SSCC)

Stanford Supportive Care Center (SSCC) provides work that is of great importance to The PlumpJack Family. The Cancer Survivorship Program sponsored by the SSCC recognizes the life-changing role this disease plays in the lives of all touched by it, even survivors. In honor of Tessa Newsom, whose oncologist, Dr. Ernest Rosenbaum, founded the program, PlumpJack came together with leaders in the wine community to create Tessa's Cuvee, available at PlumpJack stores. 100% of all proceeds of the wine go directly to the SSCC.

The Breast Cancer Emergency Fund

The Breast Cancer Emergency Fund provides quick and compassionate financial assistance to breast cancer patients with limited financial resources, as well as those with no (or inadequate) access to health insurance. PlumpJack supports the BCEF through its participation in This Old Bag: Power of the Purse. Hilary Newsom has co-chaired the event the last 10 years, which auctions celebrity-owned handbags for the fight against breast cancer.

Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center: Art for Recovery

Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center: Art For Recovery helps cancer patients express themselves through art.  In 2009, Hilary Newsom created the event In Our Shoes, showcasing shoes transformed into objects d’art, that are then auctioned off along with other packaged items.
