San Francisco Business Times Names LGBTQ-Owned Landis Communications a Top Bay Area Corporate Philanthropist

The San Francisco Business Times named Landis Communications Inc. (Landis) a top Bay Area corporate philanthropist, based on a percentage of profits. In addition, in 2022, for the fourth year in a row, the newspaper ranked the LGBTQ-owned integrated marketing communications agency in the top 100 Bay Area corporations for overall corporate giving. Of those top Bay Area corporations (including Salesforce, PG&E, Gilead, Levi Strauss, Clorox), Landis, at 45.48%, had the highest percentage of annual profits donated to charitable organizations. The second biggest donor, Salesforce, clocked in at 5.38%.

“We are committed to running a values-aligned company,” commented Landis President/CEO Sean Dowdall. “To Landis, ‘values-aligned’ means we seek to produce work and represent clients that help make our communities a better place for all – now and in the future. For example, we believe in a healthy environment, technology that helps people, social justice and the enrichment of our society through quality healthcare, education and the arts. We are proud to support and represent organizations such as ODC, Joe Goode Performance Group, Live at the Orinda, Bay Area Cabaret, Peninsula Open Space Trust, Save the Redwoods League, and World Wildlife Fund, to name a few. We also support LGBTQ+ organizations such as Project Open Hand, the SF LGBT Center, PRC and numerous other social services organizations, particularly in San Francisco.”

The San Francisco Business Times also has ranked Landis for many years as a top Bay Area LGBTQ+-owned agency, as well as a top family-owned agency. Landis remains one of the few independent public relations and marketing communications agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area and represents clients in various industry sectors, including environmental, technology, healthcare and hospitality organizations.
