GIVING BACK IS IMPORTANT TO US
A significant part of TEAM Referral Network’s mission is to “positively impact our member’s businesses and the community that they belong”. Because community is so important to who we are, our network seeks to provide opportunities for our chapters and members to give back. Our passion is to positively impact hundreds of charities and non-profits where we have a TEAM chapter.
TEAM Referral Network achieves this community focus in a couple of ways. Our chapters are encouraged to actively support local non-profits/charities through service projects and financial support. We take this a step further, and donate a membership in each chapter to a non-profit or charity organization. These membership spots have all of the benefits of normal chapter membership and allow the charity or non-profit the ability to network effectively and spread the mission of their organization. Ultimately, the non-profits benefit from added exposure and promotion by their chapter, as well as added educational benefit to the staff to go out and promote their non-profit to the rest of the community.
Our history of community involvement has allowed us to be associated with many local, national, and even international charities. As we grow, we want to continue to grow our community involvement as well! If you know a non-profit or charity that would benefit from getting connected to a TEAM Referral Network chapter, please contact our team!
Testimonials from participating non-profits
The success of Young Life’s mission depends on the involvement of high quality – high impact adults that care about kids in their community. TEAM Referral Network is a magnet for high quality - high impact people. People who love making a positive difference in the lives of kids in their community. When I joined TEAM in 2011 we had 1 board member and were impacting 15 kids with 3 volunteers. Today - 9 years later – we’ve had 25 board members, 75 volunteers, and have impacted over 1000 kids! With the help of my TEAM chapter in Chino Hills, we have raised over 1.8 Million dollars in the last 8 years and have made a positive impact in the Chino Valley. Our members have found incredible value in working to create positive change for teenagers today. And while we say, “don’t hire a sales team, join one”, we believe, “don’t ignore a problem, solve one” because with TEAM, Together Everyone Achieves More!

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that builds affordable housing for low-income families. Non-profits have to market their organization just like any other business who wants to succeed. TEAM has provided us with a full marketing team to help bring better awareness of our work in the community. The local TEAM members have not only supported our fund raising efforts, but have helped build our homes. Now that's TEAM-work!!

Working with The Boys & Girls Club of Anaheim, St. Catherine's Academy identifies at-risk youth living in motels, foster care, Section 8 housing, and priority neighborhoods where drug abuse and gang violence are most prevalent.
Students are offered full tuition scholarships beginning in the lower grades and full five-day resident scholarships beginning in 4th grade (when SCA's boarding program begins). The Tri City TEAM not only has supported this mission in providing assistance in help raise awareness, funds, and 95% of my TEAM stepped up to volunteer at my biggest fundraiser of the year. We were able to raise $135,000 in a quick Fund In Need for the Mother Pia Scholarship program, and exceeded our expectations!
