Nelson Family of Companies Leaders in Philanthropy
For more than 40 years, the Nelson Family of Companies (NFC) has played an important role in the North Bay community. Since 1970, NFC has been connecting talented individuals with fine local organizations. NFC’s unwavering focus on the needs of clients and on ethical business practices sets this company apart in the talent market business. Excellence, Innovation, Empathy and Integrity are the values at the heart of the company — NFC holds itself to a high standard.
Nelson is proud to be recognized as a staffing industry leader. NFC was named NorthBay Biz magazine’s “Best Job Placement Service in 2014” and as a “Top Workplace” by the Bay Area News Group. The company was included on the national “Best of Staffing” lists for both Client and Talent satisfaction. In addition, it was cited by Staffing Industry Analysts as “one of the country’s fastest-growing staffing and talent engagement firms.”
This family company takes great pride in its philanthropic endeavors. Gary and Marcia Nelson have long been supporters of, and outspoken advocates for, education, health and the arts. They established the Gary and Marcia Nelson Community Care Fund and Endowment to support emergency room services. The Nelsons led the recent Sonoma Valley Hospital ER Campaign, raising in excess of 11 million dollars. As Corporate Alliance Partners at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts since 2007, NFC has been one of the Center’s strong supporters, making vital arts and education programs possible for North Bay residents, including more than 30,000 school children each year. In addition, NFC was essential in making the Center one of the few arts organizations in the country to be “powered by the sun,” through their leadership and support of our solar panel installation project in 2012.
NFC’s innovative spirit stems from founder Gary D. Nelson, a strategic thinker whose passion, creativity, and determination make him a visionary in the staffing and human resources industry. Under his leadership and that of Craig Nelson as Chairman, NFC has grown from a one-office establishment in 1970, to a thriving, 250-employee-strong, 19-location enterprise in 2015, from California to Texas.
Luther Burbank Center for the Arts is proud to have the support of the Nelson Family of Companies.
