Texas Realty Capital Heads to New Mexico
Texas Realty Capital is committed to investing in the future of our community. Through our Funding the Future program, we donate 3% of our fee income from loan originations to locally-based organizations related to children, social services and the environment. Since 2006, TRC has invested over $478,000 in the Austin community. One of the organizations we frequently support is Explore Austin.
Explore Austin equips underserved youth to make positive life choices like avoiding risky behavior, developing healthy relationships, and advancing their education. Through leadership training, long-term mentoring, and outdoor adventure, Explore Austin is improving the well-being of each participant, their families, and the community. TRC’s annual gift currently supports a year of curriculum for 10 explorers in the Explore Austin program. After an informational meeting in 2012, we not only began to contribute financially to support this deserving organization, but our associate, Chase Johnson, applied for a mentorship position.
Last week, Chase went on a week-long Explore Austin rock climbing excursion to New Mexico with a group of 8th graders going into 9th grade. The 6-year mentor program is designed to ensure mentors are with the same group of students throughout their high school career. It also helps support the formation of life-long bonds that are crucial to the students’ growth and development. This trip marked the third year of Chase’s mentorship and he continues to provide immense support for his explorers. According to Explore Austin program coordinators, Chase “does an amazing job of connecting outdoor adventure to tangible life lessons and makes every experience with his Explorers a teachable moment.”
At TRC, we ensure that our community contributions remain an integral aspect of our business model, and we congratulate Chase on this continued support of this amazing group.
