Although Lawrence Goldfarb and his company, LRG Capital Group, LLC, have contributed to a broad array of charitable organizations and community groups over the years, he has directed particular support to certain nonprofit operations. Currently, he serves on the board of directors for Youth Tennis Advantage in Oakland, California, a 501(c)3 organization that gives inner-city youth access to tennis lessons and academic tutoring. In 2010, the Marin History Museum named Lawrence Goldfarb to its board of directors, and he has also joined the board of Easter Seals Northern California. LRG Capital has provided major sponsorship to the Mill Valley Film Festival, as well as to The Harbor Point Charitable Foundation, which provides funding to other organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area that perform research on, provide public information about, and assist with adult health crisis issues. Scleroderma, a rare and poorly understood autoimmune disease that can fatally attack the skin and internal organs, has affected members of Lawrence Goldfarb’s family. Thus, he and his companies have long supported the work of The Scleroderma Research Foundation. A lifelong musician, mainly as a jazz pianist, Mr. Goldfarb has also contributed to the programs at the Blue Bear School of Music, a San Francisco nonprofit founded in 1971. Blue Bear offers instrumental and vocal classes in rock, blues, pop, folk, and jazz music to children and adults with day jobs. As a single parent of a child with special needs, Mr. Goldfarb understood what it meant when a friend’s daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Lawrence Goldfarb helped his friend launch the Joe Toucan Diabetes Project. The project employs a Joe Toucan doll, books, and an array of other products to help fund research and education into pediatric diabetes. In 2010, the American Diabetes Association awarded Lawrence Goldfarb its Father of the Year title.
