The apartment industry's greatest asset is people, and many of our people have fallen on hard times as a result of COVID-19. Groundskeepers, maintenance and leasing professionals, as well as office teams, our "front-line" workers have been financially impacted by this pandemic. Whether it be through layoffs or furloughs, some of our essential, industry workers are struggling.

In light of this, the AAGO Foundation is proud to formally announce that in partnership with AAGO and the Bay Area Apartment Association (BAAA), that it has established the AAGO Foundation Industry Relief Fund.

This fund will be used to provide much needed financial support to members of the larger-spanning central Florida Apartment industry (the I-4 Corridor region) who have become unemployed due to COVID 19. 

Before the fund's formal announcement had even been made, we raised $15,000!  

The Fund will provide one-time, $500 grants, to industry employees who apply and demonstrate financial need as outlined in our guidelines (coming soon). This fund will only be successful through the financial support of individuals, companies, and partners looking to support the hard-working professionals who have supported the industry through good times and bad ones.

Join me, and our other early contributors in supporting the people, and their families, that have taken our industry to new heights over the last several years.

$10 buys a lunch, $25 fills a gas tank, $100 covers a power bill, $500 could keep a roof over their head.  No amount is too large or too small!  Grants have already been distributed in the Tampa and Orlando regions, and applications remain open thanks to the generousity of our donors!

GIVE $10 GIVE $25 GIVE $50 GIVE $100 GIVE $500 or more!

All contributions are tax-deductible and donors large and small will be recognized (unless you choose to remain anonymous) on the Industry Relief Information Pages of AAGO, BAAA, and The AAGO Foundation.
