GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY

SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS

At Compass, we strongly believe that besides being ethical businesspeople, it is very important for us to be good and kind citizens. We are big proponents of giving back to our community.

The Lancaster County Community Foundation is proud to partner with Compass Real Estate, LLC in their business philanthropy.

FOREVER LANCASTER – Lancaster County Community Foundation

The Community Foundation is proud to partner with Compass Real Estate, LLC in their business philanthropy. Read on for Deepa Balepur and Rich Wolman’s perspective on why they give through Forever Lancaster:

“At Compass, we strongly believe in giving back to the community that has given us so much support through the years. Our business success is based on the relationships we build with our clients. What better way to express our gratitude to our clients than by contributing to service-based organizations which they deeply care about?

Forever Lancaster provides us with the ability to make contributions in honor of our clients, towards a wide variety of organizations which are committed to sustainability and having significant community impact. It also provides us with the opportunity to seed a fund that we or our clients are passionate about.

In the business world, corporate philanthropy is becoming a way of doing good business. While there are many motivations for business philanthropy, the community impact this can have is most important.

In our work we see large and impactful real estate projects coming together by various people working towards a common goal. We feel blessed to be part of a community where people do the same for the common good.”

IN GOOD COMPANY

In Good Company is an invitation to all Lancaster County businesses to build long-term value for our community and for our business. Traveling with our peers—in good company—we believe we will position our business for future success and together, we’ll distinguish Lancaster as a national leader in the good business movement.

Our open letter on racism states the commitment of In Good Company to dismantling racism in our businesses and in our community. As business leaders, we acknowledge the vast disparities in economic opportunity that exist in our community, and we commit to using our companies to better address these disparities through our business practices.
