Dollar Loan Center CEO Charles Brennan found himself on the Howard Stern Show this month to announce a major charity donation. The Las Vegas-based business owner and philanthropist committed more than $50,000 to the 15 Foundation, an organization founded by Howard Stern Show co-host Robin Quivers.
15 Foundation is an incredible organization that helps those who are in the trenches helping people every day, said Brennan. I am honored to assist in their efforts to improve academics, nutrition and arts education in schools across the country and look forward to seeing what they can do with this donation.
15 Foundation is a philanthropic initiative Quivers founded in 2010 with a mission to target organizations that are tackling some of the most pressing issues in U.S. communities. Proceeds from its donations have benefited organizations nationwide. Proceeds from its latest fundraising efforts went towards the assistance of two California based youth charities–The Edible School Yard in Berkley and Connolly Ranch in Napa Valley. Both are dedicated to teaching children about good food nutrition and helping them establish the right eating habits early in life, setting a pattern for success.
“That was a dream experience for me, but there are many other ways to help deserving organizations at any budget, said Brennan. I work with a group called charitybuzz that helps raise money for deserving non-profits that donors may not know about.
charitybuzz is a cause marketing organization based in New York City. It connects non-profits with international brands and celebrity icons to raise funds through innovative online auctions including pop culture experiences, VIP events, luxury travel, fine art, couture fashion, coveted internships and upscale merchandise. Since launching, charitybuzz has raised more than $50 million for charities around the globe.
Charles Brennan recently began working with charitybuzz and said it has multiple benefits for individual and organization
donors. They find non-profits in all areas of the country that are doing great work and need funding, he said. “Plus the auction format makes giving even easier, especially when you get to have unique experiences that are tailored to your interests.
Charles Brennan’s experiences through charitybuzz have included a day on the set of HBO’s hit show Entourage as well as a meeting with television producer and star Larry David. “I spent the day with the cast and crew of Entourage when they were filming the series finale. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Charles Brennan, whose companies span nearly 20 U.S. states, is a well-known philanthropist in Nevada and South Dakota where two of his companies are headquartered. This year alone, he has given more than $100,000 to community organizations including Opportunity Village and Henderson Little League, both in Southern Nevada.
