Landmark Properties Gives Back to Boys and Girls Club of America
ATHENS, GA. March 9, 2015—Landmark Properties raised over $10,000 and donated more than 150 hours for the Boys and Girls Club of America through seven of their communities across the country for the 2014-2015 year. This real estate firm, specializing in high quality student housing communities, dedicates time and volunteer efforts to ensure that all young people, especially those in need, reach their full potential.
Last year, Landmark Properties began their “Give Back Campaign” in an effort to help raise money and awareness for the Boys and Girls Club of America with each of their communities participating in its own way. For operational sites, one dollar per bed leased for 2014-2015 was donated while three dollars was donated for each new lease up. Overall, Landmark Properties and their communities were able to raise over $4,000 from new lease ups and over $5,000 from their operational sites.
Sites were also encouraged to raise money through events specific to their sites that did not involve leasing. Some sites chose to hold raffles while others took the traditional, nostalgic approach and sold lemonade. Whether the event was selling tank tops or holding dinners or offering a taco night, communities pulled together to donate as much as they could to this amazing organization.
Communities were also asked to donate volunteer hours to the Boys and Girls Club. Community managers, leasing ambassadors and other employees were asked to spend as much time as they could at their local Boys and Girls Club and meet some of the amazing children that this organization is dedicated to helping. For the 2014-2015 year, Landmark and its communities were able to donate 157 hours.
The Landmark Properties team is a firm believer in the Boys and Girls Club of America and its mission to bring hope and opportunity to the young people who need it most. Landmark plans to continue this campaign and aims to raise even more for 2015-2016 year.
Landmark Gives Back
ATHENS, GA. June 25, 2014—Landmark Gives Back is a company-wide philanthropic endeavor with the purpose to bring residents and staff together to give back to each of the local markets where Landmark has, or currently is developing, student housing communities.
Together, We Can Make a Difference in Helping Keep a Child on the Right Path to Higher Education
In its inaugural year, Landmark Gives Back will support local Boys & Girls Clubs through both financial assistance and volunteer support. The mission of the Boys & Girls Club is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Through development and ongoing management, Landmark has access to communities full of college students who have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and teens in their local community. Landmark believes that every child not only deserves the chance to attend and graduate from college, but also that every child is capable of making it there with the right guidance and mentorship.
In the cities where Landmark has fully-operational student housing communities, the goal is to raise funds each year for the local Boys & Girls Club. Residents and staff at each community will come together to host fundraising events and Landmark will match (dollar for dollar) all funds raised.
Landmark has also set a goal to donate volunteer hours per market. Transportation will be provided to/from the local Boys & Girls Club for students and staff who are interested in giving their valuable time to help with things like after-school tutoring, sports coaching, teaching dance classes, and more.
