Having grown up in Ottawa, started all my businesses here, and now raising a family here, I have always been a supporter of various community causes across the region. Our company, Capital Integral Property Management and our associated group of companies have grown over the past few years and are now industry leaders in condominium management services.
A few years ago, Erin Horwitz, a partner and team member, and I were having coffee one morning and we were talking about how we could help in our communities; the result of that conversation led to the creation of what is now the Capital Integral Charitable Foundation.
The primary goal of the CICF is to support children in our community.
Our first effort at fundraising was to support the 24 Hours at Tremblant in Dec 2019. With the help of some excellent sponsors and dedicated staff, we raised $70,000 for children’s charities through this fun and exciting event.
We are pleased to announce that we have chosen the School Breakfast Program through the Ottawa Network for Education, as the next beneficiary of our efforts. We have committed to donating $225,000.00 over the next three years.
Our decision to support the School Breakfast Program was driven by the knowledge that 1 in 5 five students head to school each day with an empty stomach. How can we expect our children to succeed without nutrition?
Stay tuned for further announcements around our efforts to support this very worthwhile cause. I challenge all business owners out there to join our efforts and support our community by helping CICF or choosing another charity close to your heart.
