One of the great things about VITEK is our employees…many of whom are contributing to our community in big ways.
These ‘Unsung Heroes’ often go unnoticed for the positive impact they are making. We want that to change, so we are highlighting these special VITEKians and the organization(s) they serve.
As a company, we believe, beyond home loans our purpose is to make a positive difference in the community. VITEK Mortgage Loan Originator, Mike Hobson, has made this his personal mission as well. As President of Lincoln Community Foundation, Mike is helping to create positive change in the Lincoln, CA community. Through gifts and donations made to LCF, the organization is able to help invest in the community by supporting local non-profits. Gifts LCF receives are invested and the interest earned on those gifts is then turned into grants to help support local non-profit organizations and their projects.
Since 2005 Lincoln Community Foundation has granted $281,000 towards 175 projects to help grow and enhance the Lincoln community.1 The work of LCF not only helps benefit the community, but also helps organizations in need of financial support for various projects and initiatives.
As president of Lincoln Community Foundation, Mike is helping guide the organization’s direction and ensure proper stewardship of the gifts received. LCF is helping to support great local organizations, including Boy Scouts, KIWANIS, Veterans Coalition, schools, and much, much more.
“Most charitable dollars go to kids, critters, and diseases. The people leading those organizations and other focused charities do so with purpose and passion for their particular cause. The Lincoln Community Foundation is able to help support all those as well as the arts, civic improvement, scholarship and safety programs, and many more.”
