Monthly contributions from Carrington borrowers provide vital support to CCF’s signature programs.
ALISO VIEJO, California, August 19, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – For the past ten years, the Carrington Charity Foundation (CCF) has supported nonprofit organizations and communities in the United States through causes that reflect the interests of Carrington leaders and our employees. In September 2019, CCF ran a round-up program for Carrington Mortgage Services (CMS) customers who provide an easy way for them to support the great work CCF does in communities across America by “rounding up” their monthly mortgage payment to the nearest dollar, with the additional amount donated to CCF. In addition to rounding up, borrowers can also donate an additional $ 1, $ 5, or an amount of their choice. To date, the CCF Round Up program has raised more than $ 200,000 to support programs for wounded veterans in the United States.
“CCF Round Up is very similar to what customers in grocery and retail stores can do to support nonprofits,” said Shelly Lawrence, executive director of community relations, Carrington Charitable Foundation. “When Carrington customers join forces for CCF, they are vital support for our veteran-centric programs. It is also an opportunity for Carrington customers to become part of and support our mission.”
CCF supports veterans through initiatives that provide:
Mobility: CCF financially supports The Veterans Airlift Command (VAC). Working with a network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots, the VAC provides free private air transport to veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and their families.
Stability: Carrington House offers bespoke, adaptable homes for catastrophically injured veterans. To date, Carrington House has built 27 deserved veteran homes, each tailored to meet the unique needs of wounded veterans and their families – with the final home completed this month. With this recent completion of the house, Carrington House is now moving towards supporting a housing initiative for struggling Gold Star families.
Purpose: This pillar focuses on a veteran’s struggle in transitioning to a civil after-service life. CCF supports the operating budget of Travis Mills Foundation, a retreat for wounded veterans to return to a sense of normalcy after traumatic injuries.
Prosperity: CCF supports veterans in their transition back to civilian life by supporting other like-minded nonprofits and offering them opportunities such as: The honor foundation, which offers programs to help veterans transition from military to civilian life.
In 2020, funding from the CCF Round Up program provided critical funding for three Carrington House Homes for wounded veterans. These included houses for US Army specialist Matthew Melancon, who suffered amputation of both legs, life-threatening MRSA infection and many reconstructive operations following an improvised explosive device (IED) attack in Afghanistan in 2011; US Army Sergeant 1st Class Matthew Miles, who was seriously wounded in 2007 in Afghanistan when his vehicle was destroyed by an IED; and US Marine Corporal Michael Jernigan, who lost his eyesight and sight in Iraq in 2004 after being hit by 155mm artillery shells while on patrol and who later survived more than 30 complex operations.
“We are humble and incredibly grateful that Carrington customers have chosen to support these important veteran programs,” said Rosemary Rose, Chair of the Carrington Charitable Foundation. “Your donations make an important difference in the lives of service members who have done so much to protect and preserve the freedoms that are important to us all.”
