Giving back to communities in which we work
Northmarq fosters a passionate commitment to improving our local communities, the environment, and access to affordable housing, through numerous service events, Volunteer Paid Time Off, and a generous gift matching program. Northmarq’s investment in service is a direct reflection of our company’s values of integrity, respect and involvement, which is embedded in the culture of our offices nationally.
Investing in communities
Northmarq is proud to invest in programs that improve the quality of life, locally and nationally, by supporting organizations and leading initiatives that address important issues and needs. Our corporate owners have committed $25 million to racial justice initiatives in 2020 (read the announcement here), and we are honored to join that effort.
The projects we support aim to strengthen the long-term sustainability of our communities by highlighting our communities’ assets and nurturing our communities’ identities through frequent and meaningful human interaction. We work with and through non-profit organizations to make visible investments, create positive public spaces, promote safety, health and comfort, and develop more desirable places to live.
At the corporate level, we have awarded grants to organizations focused on expanding affordable housing and reducing homelessness in communities across the country. Learn more about the organizations that received grants in 2019 and in 2018.
Matching employee gifts
An important aspect of the company’s commitment to our communities is our Employee Matching Gift Program. This program encourages our employees to request matching funds for their monetary donations to eligible non-profit organizations. Through the Employee Match Program, Northmarq is continuously becoming more aware, open and responsive to our communities’ wide array of needs. These grants provide the resources necessary to reinvigorate our communities.
Our employees are passionate about giving their time and talents back to the community and often do so as a team. These events include food drives, community giving campaigns, and sharing expertise through mentoring talent.
