Visionary homebuilders win Philanthropic Group Award

From our 2015-2016 Report to Community.

In the business world they are competitors. But in the homeless sector they have come together as our greatest champions.

The 11 Visionary homebuilders who contributed a lead gift to RESOLVE won the Philanthropic Group Award at the 2015 Generosity of Spirit Awards on November 13, 2015.

This group is steadfastly committed to addressing the lack of affordable and supported housing by working together on more than eight Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) projects within RESOLVE. Their combined $15.4 million gift is in addition to sharing their expertise, leadership and motivation to get these projects in the ground.

The builders were at the starting line of the Campaign. RESOLVE has been fortunate to have the leadership of Alan Norris, of Brookfield Residential Properties Inc., as the Chair of the Campaign and Jay Westman, of Jayman BUILT Group of Companies, as a member of the Cabinet.

The 11 builders have been instrumental in moving these projects forward with their first-hand knowledge of not only the building industry but also the importance of having a home.
