UDGI matches up to $500 in contributions to charities for each of our team members.

Improving the lives of others and investing in causes that enhance social good are core values shared by the UDGI team. Charitable giving of talent, time, and treasure are encouraged by making philanthropy a part of our business strategy and organizational culture. Del Corazon, the charitable foundation of the Ayyad Family contributes to many worthy causes. UDGI also partners with charities that effectively improve the lives of the less fortunate and helps them achieve their goals.

The importance of volunteerism is woven into our culture and each employee is encouraged to make a difference by offering one paid volunteer day for each employee every quarter. Our team is highly involved in civic, charitable, and community programs and organizations. Del Corazon also provides a matching gift program, matching contributions made by our team members to charitable causes, up to $500 per year.

At UDGI, we aim to inspire others through our leadership and seek to create value for all our stakeholders. We appreciate the opportunities that have been provided to us and do all that we can to show our gratitude through altruism and investment in responsible initiatives.

UDGI offers one paid volunteer day every quarter for our team members.

Del Corazon

Founded in 2006, our charitable giving foundation is committed to supporting many worthy causes that support education, stable housing, food security, the alleviation of poverty and the provision of medical care to those in need. By leveraging the resources of UDGI, the foundation empowers numerous organizations that effectively improve the lives of the less fortune and helps them achieve their goals. Del Corazon also makes targeted donations to non-profit organizations that positively impact the communities where UDGI team members and residents work and live.

Futuro Brillante

Fundación Futuro Brillante was established in August 2016 by the developers of the hospitality project Punta Sabana. The founders are deeply committed to supporting local communities, and thus created Futuro Brillante to help the residents of the Cabo Velas District in Guanacaste achieve a “brighter future” through the delivery and execution of high quality education programs, infrastructure development, technical training, and environmental projects. Futuro Brillante accomplishes its mission through direct program delivery in coordination with the local community, as well as collaborative partnerships with the private sector, public institutions, and other nonprofit organizations.

Global Care Alliance

GCA was born in 2005 with a bag of rice and beans donated to a kitchen for underprivileged children in the rural community of Colonet, Mexico.

Since that time, we have grown into an important international humanitarian organization with many projects in Mexico and the African nation of Burundi. We are continuing to grow and expand every day as we build on our successes of the past and look forward to the future.

Our projects are changing and saving lives all over the world.

Nativity Prep

Nativity Prep Academy is an independent, tuition-free Catholic school for young men and women who represent the first generation in their families to graduate from college. Our programs support more than 220 students in Southeast San Diego over the course of 11 years, from middle school through high school to college. We believe the best hope for low-income children is a great education earned through hard work, founded on personal care, and focused on service to others.

Angels of Grace

Angels of Grace Foster Family Agency is an agency that provides a place of refuge and healing for foster children. A place where they can receive the nurturing and care that they need from professional social workers and trained foster parents. Every day, they are able to draw strength from the human warmth and affection that has frequently been denied to them.

Our culturally diverse treatment program provides an array of services to families in order to sustain the needs of foster children. Our goal is to remain focused on the children’s needs and search for a good foster family that will work with them on their issues and at their level. Thanks to the support of many wonderful people throughout the community, not only are we able to meet the physical needs of foster children, but we get to love, nurture, and protect the mind, body and spirit of the children we serve.

Sharp HealthCare Foundation

For more than four decades, Sharp HealthCare Foundation has enhanced the current and future health care needs of San Diegans through support of critical medical services, clinical research and health education at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, Sharp McDonald Center, Sharp Memorial Hospital, Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, Sharp Rehabilitation Services and Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Centers.

Pacific Ridge School

Pacific Ridge fosters academic excellence, ethical responsibility and global engagement. The school prepares students for college and a purposeful life. Pacific Ridge is committed to developing lifelong learners and critical thinkers and teaches them learning habits that allow students to discover their voice and passions. UDGI has partnered with Pacific Ridge to give scholarships to deserving students who may not have the financial resources to attend the school.

Feeding America

Feeding America’s mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

With the support of its generous partners, the Feeding America network is meeting the needs of families across the country and helping them find the strength to move forward and flourish.

Our Support During COVID-19 

Closer to home in San Diego, Feeding America has been providing food for those in the community unable to do so for themselves. This need has increased dramatically since the start of the pandemic. Del Corazon contributed $6k for the purchase of food for families who otherwise may go hungry.

It doesn’t take a big commitment to make a big impact. Together, with millions of other food bank volunteers, your time makes a difference in the lives of your neighbors struggling with hunger. Help the Feeding America nationwide network get food in the hands of those who need it most.
