An official partner of the Vegas Golden Knights (VGK), the tech-based real estate company Homie announced that it will again partner with the VGK Foundation on “Saves for Charity” to benefit the Las Vegas Coalition to Make Homes Possible.
As part of the philanthropic partnership, the VGK Foundation will become the first local sports entity to join the Las Vegas Coalition to Make Homes Possible, which Homie is sponsoring to help close the Black homeownership gap in Southern Nevada by empowering families with resources such as down payment assistance, financial coaching, credit repair, housing counseling, and real estate services, to achieve homeownership over the next ten years.
“The Golden Knights Foundation is proud to further their partnership with Homie by joining the Las Vegas Coalition to Make Homes Possible,” said VGK Foundation President Kim Frank.
With “Saves for Charity,” Homie will donate $5 for every VGK goalkeeper save during the 2021- 2022 regular season, and the VGK Foundation will match Homie’s donation with an additional $5 per save.
“Homie’s mission is to make homeownership easy, accessible, and affordable for all,” said Elias Benjelloun, Head of Social Impact for Homie. “We greatly appreciate our partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation and that together we can further support this mission, especially in the valley’s underserved and disadvantaged communities.”
Last season, “Saves for Charity” raised more than $22,000 for NID Housing Counseling Agency of Southern Nevada to support the agency’s housing counseling services.
