Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
The Homeowners Financial Care Fund (http://www.thecarefund.org) was launched in January 2013 to help families with a critically ill child pay their home mortgage or rent when medical expenses severely limit their ability to meet their monthly housing obligations. In just six months the fund has pledges of $750,000 towards its 2013 goal of raising $1 million. The announcement to change the name to simply “The Care Fund” will strengthen a broader community appeal to other companies in the home ownership industry.
“We are grateful for the results of our fundraising efforts to date. Yet, we found having our company name attached was limiting the amount of participation that we could garner from other decision makers in the housing industry,” said Bill Rogers, Care Fund co-founder and CEO of Homeowners Financial Group USA, LLC. “We feel that the Care Fund mission is aligned with our industry, and it’s our duty to give back to the very families who are our clients. This worthy community cause should not be identified by just one company.”
“Our top priority is to work with our community and help families prevent losing their home and suffering increased financial burdens while they are dealing with the unthinkable – the tragic illness or injury of a child,” said Pat Lamb, Care Fund co-founder and president of Homeowners Financial Group. “We’re already granting funds to qualified families and have garnered support from numerous and generous major local companies – including competitors and non-housing industry firms. We now anticipate even more willing support.”
Employees of the Homeowners Financial Group (http://homeownersfg.com), which is recognized as “Arizona’s Most Award Winning” mortgage banker, have a legacy of employee giving and a culture of serving its community. Employees are also actively contributing to the Care Fund through transactional giving, volunteering or awareness. The foundation can establish employee deductions or transactional giving with any company.
