Porte Cares Program 2021

Porte In the Community

Over the past 50 years Porte has been building communities and enriching lives through the development, ownership and management of property. We create places where people love to live, work and play and we are committed to strengthening the communities we work in so they last for generations.

We are humbled to be able to support people and charities in every location we do business and we are excited to announce our Porte Cares Program for the fifth year in a row. With times being challenging for some we would like to fast track our program to help those in need sooner. The program invites charities in our community to submit applications for sponsorship. Last year we received over 30 applications and chose three to support: Backpack Buddies, Paws for Hope and Volunteer Cancer Driver Society.

The Details of our Porte Cares Program:

We are committed to giving back to the communities we work in, this year we are reaching out to the community and asking you to submit an application for funding your initiatives. If you are doing extraordinary charitable work and could use some help, we invite you to submit an application for sponsorship today. We will be choosing one to four charities as recipients of up to $15,000.

The Criteria:

Our employees make and live by a set of Promises that guide how we do business. We want our partners to share the same beliefs, so we will carefully select charities who live by the same values.

The charities we work with are always:

●     People Focused

●     Committed to Excellence

●     Trustworthy

●     Community builders

If that sounds like you or someone you may know, we invite you and anyone in our community to submit an application for funding.
