Ron Cichon, V.P. Granicus Inc., needed a commercial broker to negotiate a renewal of their office lease in downtown Chicago. He was thrilled to find out that, through Investing In Communities, he could direct a portion of the commission that his broker would be paid anyway to St. Rose Center, which serves children with disabilities, including his son. Even though St. Rose Center hadn’t been aware of Investing In Communities, they were able to go online and quickly become a member; as a result of the transaction, they received $2,515. Not only did his favorite charity benefit, but his firm also ended up with more favorable terms for their office lease, including maximizing a remodeling allowance and free rent. St Rose Center is an IIC Social Justice charity.
