Making a positive impact on communities and lives throughout Chicagoland
About @gives back
The @properties @gives back Community Fund provides an outlet for agents, employees and colleagues to make a positive impact on dozens of communities and thousands of lives throughout Chicagoland.
@gives back was endowed in 2009 by the founders of @properties, Mike Golden and Thaddeus Wong. In addition to this endowment, @gives back depends on funding from our corporate sponsors in the Chicago community. Our goal is to annually increase the fund's reserves so that @properties and its sponsors will be able to help alleviate family's high medical bills in times of need.
Each year through @properties agent submissions, we identify a local organization that meets our same mission of improving the lives of families in need in Chicago.

2018: The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation
During his battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo realized that no matter how difficult it was for him to fight the disease, it was even more difficult for his family. In 2012, Anthony created The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money for cancer research and provides support to families with children battling cancer.
