Guidelines for Application

Dermody Properties believes in corporate philanthropy. Corporate financial institutions help to improve the quality of life for everyone in our community. We have chosen to support and sustain organizations that focus on the arts, education and the family, with special emphasis on children, the elderly, the disabled, substance abuse and the homeless.

Corporate contributions are made possible by the hard work and dedication of all the employees at Dermody Properties. The Dermody Properties Foundation is a charitable organization established by the employees of Dermody Properties to benefit the citizens of the communities in which we do business.

Organizations must be located within approximately 30 miles of one of our current projects to qualify.
