As part of CBRE Cares, CBRE's corporate giving and volunteerism program, the company launched its CBRE Shelter Program, which aims to provide homes and shelter to those in need and support those causes that align with our business. Matching the concept of providing shelter with the enthusiasm and passion of CBRE professionals across the United States will have a significant impact on the communities in which our employees live and work.
CBRE is pleased to partner with HomeAid and Rebuilding Together to further the CBRE Shelter Program. Habitat for Humanity also plays a key role in select markets. Each of these organizations are critical to the success of this program. They provide a national footprint, have extensive project and volunteer management experience, provide marketing support and expertise, have a track record of success and knowledge of working with corporate sponsors, and offer turn-key events that can be driven and implemented on a local level.
One-quarter of all funds raised through the annual CBRE Cares campaign is used to support corporate giving to causes related to shelter and poverty housing, environmental sustainability and community service. In addition, CBRE employees may earmark donated funds specifically for the Shelter Program. The CBRE Foundation will match all employee donations to the Shelter Program up to a specified budgeted amount annually.
