Carrington Charitable Foundation’s Round Up Program has raised more than $320,000 for Veteran initiatives since its launch in 2019. For the past decade, the Carrington Charitable Foundation (CCF) has supported nonprofit organizations and communities across the United States through causes that reflect the interests of Carrington leaders and our Associates.
“We are humbled and incredibly grateful that Carrington customers have chosen to round up to support these important Veteran programs,” said Rosemary Rose, Chairman, Carrington Charitable Foundation. “Their donations are making an important difference in the lives of service members who have given so much to protect and preserve the freedoms we all hold dear.”
In Sept. 2019, CCF introduced a Round Up program for Carrington Mortgage Services (CMS) customers that provides them with an easy way to support the great work CCF is doing in communities across America by “rounding-up" their monthly mortgage payment to the nearest dollar, with the additional amount being made as a donation to CCF. In addition to rounding up, borrowers also can elect to donate an additional $1, $5, or an amount of their choosing.
“CCF Round Up is very similar to what customers can do at grocery stores and retail stores to support nonprofits,” said Shelly Lawrence, Executive Director of Community Relations, Carrington Charitable Foundation. “When Carrington customers round up for CCF, they’re providing critical support to our Veteran-focused programs. It is also a way for Carrington clients to become a part of and support our mission.”
CCF supports Veterans through initiatives that provide:
- Mobility: CCF financially supports The Veterans Airlift Command (VAC). Working with a network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots, the VAC provides free private air transportation for Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and their families.
- Stability: Carrington House provides custom, adaptive homes for catastrophically injured Veterans. To date, Carrington House has built 27 homes for deserving Veterans, each designed to meet the special needs of wounded Veterans and their families. Carrington House is now shifting towards supporting a housing initiative for struggling Gold Star Families.
- Purpose: This pillar is focused on a Veteran’s struggle transitioning to a civilian life post service. CCF supports the operating budget of the Travis Mills Foundation, a retreat for wounded Veterans to help return a sense of normalcy after traumatic injuries.
- Prosperity: CCF assists Veterans during their transition back to civilian life by supporting and providing opportunities with other like-minded nonprofits like The Honor Foundation, which offers programs aiding Veterans in the transition from military to civilian life.
