Trailhead Community Awarded $5K Grant from ALTA Good Deeds Foundation
The American Land Title Association (ALTA) Good Deeds Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded by ALTA, the national trade association of the land title insurance industry, has awarded $5,000 to Trailhead Community in Littleton. Dora Mobley, closing director of Windmill Title, LLC in Nashville, Tenn., nominated the nonprofit to receive the grant because of the organization’s efforts to provide a community for those with developmental disabilities. Trailhead Community is one of 26 nonprofit organizations across the United States that received a grant this month from the ALTA Good Deeds Foundation. The Foundation announced the recipients of this year’s second round of biannual grants during ALTA ONE, ALTA’s largest annual event.
“We are honored to be the recipient of this grant from the ALTA Good Deeds Foundation,” said Barbara Ziegler, executive director of Trailhead Community. “Our organization will use this grant to help fund a new apartment community where 50 percent of the units will be allocated for adults with developmental disabilities.”
The ALTA Good Deeds Foundation was launched in 2020 to bolster the charitable efforts of ALTA members. Land title insurance professionals can apply for grants on behalf of recognized 501(c)(3) organizations that they support financially or through volunteer efforts; preference is given to housing-related charities. The inaugural round of grants was announced in March 2021.
“My favorite season is officially grant season,” said Foundation Board Chair Mary O’Donnell, president and CEO of Westcor Land Title Insurance Co. and past president of ALTA. “The impact that the ALTA Good Deeds Foundation grants have on these charitable organizations is immense. We are excited to see how this round of grants helps local communities across the country develop and grow.”
“This year, ALTA members came together to support a huge goal: to help the ALTA Good Deeds Foundation raise $1 million,” said ALTA CEO Diane Tomb. “I am pleased to announce that this fall, we met that goal; since its inception in October 2020, ALTA members have gone above and beyond to support the foundation. To date, we have given away more than $550,000 in grants to 97 community nonprofits in 36 states—plus Washington D.C. — across the country. We are grateful that, because of our members, the Foundation is able to continue its meaningful work and make an impact in so many communities.”
