QuadReal for Good
Our community program, QuadReal for Good, is built upon the collective experiences and commitments of our team members. Together, we support vibrant, diverse and resilient places, aligning our priorities with the priorities we see in our communities.
We give forward to a broad range of causes through volunteer time, direct corporate donations and in-kind contributions at all levels of our business. We also champion and invest in organizations that align with our vision and values through donations and partnerships—building a sustainable future for everyone.
Doing our Part
QuadReal for Good is a multi-level approach that unifies our commitment to communities across all aspects of our organization.
Under this program, we engage with team members, tenants, residents and partners to determine the most important needs of the communities where we do business and contribute where it is needed most.
Our contribution efforts include: paid volunteer days, donation matching and charitable giving through the annual Awards of Excellence; Culture Committees that lead charitable events and opportunities across our offices; long-lasting community initiatives through our properties and new development projects; an easy-to-use charitable giving and volunteering platform that empowers our employees; and impactful community partners at the corporate level.
