We believe that giving back to our community makes it stronger.
That’s why we donate 10% of our time to the causes we care about. Below are a few examples of the pro bono clients we are helping. Please visit their sites and support their important work.

AIDS Legal Referral Panel

ALRP’s mission is to help people with HIV/AIDS maintain or improve their health by resolving their legal issues, providing free and low-cost legal services in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in 1983, they’ve helped clients with over 80,000 cases.

At Sköna, we’re supporting ALRP through event branding and design for their annual reception and auction event. Learn more about ALRP’s work in the community here.

SF Marin Food Bank

Another of our neighbors are the SF-Marin Food Bank. We have been working together for several years now, helped them revamp their brand, built a new website and campaign sites, and most recently a transit campaign that can be seen all over the Bay Area.

Chronicle Season of Sharing Fund

The Chronicle Season of Sharing Fund provides temporary assistance to help people in the San Francisco Bay Area. Over the last 34 years, they’ve distributed more than $150 million to help individuals and families in need. In 2019-2020, they raised $14.5 million through their annual campaign and a COVID-19 rapid relief campaign for housing assistance, critical needs, and food banks.
