The MBA Opens Doors Foundation has announced that it had raised more than $31,000 during its three-month “92 Days of Summer” fundraising campaign. The Foundation is MBA's philanthropic entity dedicated to providing financial assistance to families with a critically ill or injured child by awarding grants toward a mortgage or rental payment. The MBA Opens Doors Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductable.
“Our ’92 Days of Summer’ fundraising event provided members of the real estate finance industry with a great philanthropic opportunity, and they responded in a big way,” said Debra Still, Chairman of the MBA Opens Doors Foundation. “With more than $31,000 donated in only three months, the men and women who work every day to put Americans in the home of their dreams also showed they are up to the challenge of helping families with critically ill children stay in theirs. Their generosity provides families critical financial support during a tremendously stressful and emotional period in their lives.”
With MBA’s in-kind donations for all of the Foundation’s operating costs, Opens Doors is able to pass 100 percent of the donations it receives to the families it supports. The Foundation’s ongoing relationship with Washington, D.C.’s Children’s National Health System provides a partner healthcare organization to help identify potential grant recipients.
