Sustainability & Community Involvement
Community Capital Management, Inc. (CCM) is committed to serving and bettering our environment, communities nationwide, and the areas in which we live and work. Charitable giving is critical and the firm coordinates volunteer service days for its employees several times a year.
The firm is a proud sponsor of a local foundation - The Jason Taylor Foundation - whose proceeds benefit South Florida children. One of the organizations supported by the Foundation is Take Stock in Children, which provides college scholarships to low-income and at-risk students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education. Several employees have volunteered their time serving as mentors for Take Stock. The firm has volunteered its time serving as a board member for BAND (Broward Alliance for Neighborhood Development) which is a nonprofit consortium of Broward County and Miami-Dade County housing groups who are committed to providing decent, affordable housing in our communities. CCM also participates in the United Way of Broward County's Day of Caring and several team members volunteer one hour/week for the United Way of Broward County's ReadingPals Program. ReadingPals is an early literacy initiative for children kindergarten through third grade. The program focuses on ensuring children have been exposed to the wonders of literature and are reading at grade level at the end of third grade.
CCM donates approximately 1% of net income to charitable giving and encourages and supports its employees to volunteer their time with local community organizations. Some of the groups that benefit from this, in addition to the ones listed above, include: JAFCO, Hope Project, Temple Dor Dorim, the Sawgrass Adventist School, and Temple B'nai Aviv.
CCM's environmental commitment includes encouraging office recycling, minimizing the use of plastic bottles in our office by offering a water filtration system, using energy-efficient lighting, and attempting to conduct most marketing efforts online, rather than using printed materials. We continually seek ways to grow our business in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner.
