The Shirley Ann Foundation is a nonprofit, fundraising organization inspired by the desire to honor the founders’ mothers. The mission is to provide resources to women and children in the community who are fighting for a fresh start and a second chance. The Shirley Ann Foundation is recognized as a cornerstone for mothers in the Bay Area who are compelled to rebuild their lives after struggling with addiction, surviving abuse or working to overcome homelessness.
Funding provided through the organization is used to help women and their children create a successful future that might not otherwise be available to them.
John and Carisa Zink founded IT Avalon, a women-owned IT staffing firm nearly seven years ago. In growing their business, the commitment to founding a non-profit organization also grew.
They shared the same understanding that their success was due, in part, to their strong mothers, and the generations of strong women that had brought them together. IT Avalon donates 5 percent of all net profits to the Shirley Ann Foundation annually at each IT Avalon location. John and Carisa, alongside IT Avalon, believe giving back in honor of the brave and strong matriarchs of their family is the legacy they choose to leave to their family.
