McGuire and Hester has a long tradition of giving back to the communities where we live and work. Our late founder, Michael Hester Sr., was a lifelong philanthropist who was instrumental in establishing the St. Vincent de Paul Society soup kitchen in Oakland. In 1955, he and his wife established the Michael and Maureen Hester Foundation. Today, their grandson Mike Hester carries on the family tradition as a trustee for the now-named McGuire and Hester Foundation.
Whether it has been through McGuire and Hester’s in-kind donations or the Foundation’s monetary contributions to various charitable projects, we have always considered it an honor to give back. It is our humble way of saying “thanks” to the communities we have had the privilege to work in.
