Our success comes from our community...and with that success also comes the opportunity to give back. At Aurora Title, we value the chance to better our community by partnering with local nonprofits that are dedicated to making our community, and the world, a better place.
Beginning in 2017, Aurora Title is thrilled to be partnering with three amazing organizations: Comfort Zone Camp, Gracie’s Guardians, and ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. In addition to participating in fundraising events throughout the year, we have pledged to donate $17 from each real estate settlement we close to these organizations. By choosing Aurora Title, you are also choosing to put your community first.
Help us help our community! Please take a moment to learn more about our nonprofit partners and why we support them.
Comfort Zone Camp
Comfort Zone Camp is a bereavement camp that transforms the lives of children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or legal guardian. The free camps include confidence building programs and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings.
Why Dawn chose this organization:
"Having lost my dad at 13, and not knowing how to cope or respond to peoples’ sympathy, it would have helped a lot to spend time with others going through the same situation. This organization provides counseling and grief management services, which I feel is vital for children who have lost someone special."
Gracie’s Guardians is an initiative of the Richmond Animal League, specifically focused on improving the welfare of pit bulls in the greater Richmond area. Gracie's Guardians takes a multi-faceted approach to address the plight of pit bulls in our community. They offer traditional fostering and adoption of pit bulls rescued from public shelters, proactive spay and neuter support to pit bull owners in need, and targeted education and awareness to the community.
Why Sallie chose this organization:
"As an owner of a rescued pit bull, I am very aware of the mistreatment for this breed and the misunderstanding of their nature. While all breeds of dogs need shelter and love, pit bulls are often overlooked as ideal family pets. Gracie’s Guardians works tirelessly to not only save pit bulls in need of care but to also educate the community and re-introduce the pit bull breed as the loveable dogs they truly are."
ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation
ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation provides assistance, support, and kindness when our kids and their families need it most. From the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, ASK is there to help. We know that the effects of cancer can last long after treatment ends so we’re there to support both our survivors and our bereaved families. We also know that a cancer diagnosis can affect the entire family so our services extend to parents, caregivers and siblings.
Why Holly chose this organization:
"My daughter was diagnosed with leukemia as an infant. While she was undergoing lifesaving treatment at VCU Medical Center, ASK was able to help answer questions and provided a sense of security and normalcy for my daughter. Now, 16 years later, they are still there to help with any educational concerns and survivor needs for families who often feel isolated and overwhelmed."
