Commitment to the Community

We are committed to developing deeper partnerships with nonprofits across affordable housing, the arts, education and economic development.

In supporting our communities, we hope to encourage more dialogue around giving, to spark fresh ideas about how our financial resources and our hours can change people’s lives for the better, and to be more aware of what nonprofits really need.

We believe that donating time, money and knowledge to those who are best placed to make a difference to the lives of many is the right thing to do.

It truly is a privilege to serve our communities.

For more information on our involvement with our communities download our “Commitment to the Community” brochure.
