Industry Relief Fund - Help us help our peers affected by COVID-10

Posted By: Russ Webb Community Outreach,

Let's Help Stabilize the Market by Supporting our Impacted Teams

The apartment industry's greatest asset is people, and many of our people have fallen on hard times as a result of COVID-19. Groundskeepers, maintenance and leasing professionals, as well as office teams, our "front-line" workers have been financially impacted by this pandemic. Whether it be through layoffs or furloughs, some of our essential, industry workers are struggling. In light of this, the AAGO Foundation established the AAGO Foundation Industry Relief Fund and invited the Apartment Association of Greater Orlando (AAGO) and the Bay Area Apartment Association (BAAA) to partner in this effort.

By donating through the Foundation, a 501 c3 organization, BAAA members can make tax-deductible donations while helping a very worthy cause.

This fund will be used to provide much needed financial support to members of the larger-spanning mid- Florida Apartment industry (the I-4 Corridor region) who have become unemployed due to COVID 19. 

In less than 48 hours the fund raised nearly $30,000 from individual and corporate donors!  We are grateful and humbled by the support for our friends and colleagues.  

The Fund will provide one-time, $500 grants, to industry employees who apply and demonstrate financial need as outlined in our guidelines. This fund will only be successful through the financial support of individuals, companies, and partners looking to support the hard-working professionals who have supported the industry through good times and bad ones.

$10 buys a lunch, $25 fills a gas tank, $100 might cover a power bill, $500 could keep a roof over their head.  No amount is too large or too small!

GIVE $10 GIVE $25 GIVE $50 GIVE $100 GIVE $500 OR MORE!

If you would prefer to mail a check please make it payable to the attention of:

All contributions are tax-deductible and donors large and small will be recognized (unless you choose to remain anonymous) on the Industry Relief Information Pages of AAGO, BAAA, and The AAGO Foundation.
