It shows in every area of our work. It’s also why we focus on being active in our communities and responsible in our decisions. We make ethical business choices and each of us gives back to the places where we work and live.
Whether using Cinnaire’s paid Volunteer Time Off benefit or choosing to spend our personal time, staff engage in activities that serve our communities and impact quality of life. Our “on the ground” personal involvement with the communities we serve is also one of the values we bring to investors, developers and non-profit partners.
Where we live, work, and serve, each member of our team is continuously seeking ways to advance communities and enhance the lives and prospects of their residents.
Our staff members developed Cinnaire Cares, a 100% employee driven initiative that gives our team members an opportunity to support communities and community organizations financially and through direct service activities – from cleanup and beautification to hurricane relief to cash grants for nonprofits.
Since Cinnaire Cares launched in 2017, our staff has raised more than $80,000 to directly support 30 mission-driven organizations across our geography. More than half of Cinnaire staff contributes to Cinnaire Cares each month. Every dollar raised by our team is matched by Cinnaire to double our impact.
Keith Broadnax, Cinnaire’s Senior VP of Business Development epitomizes Cinnaire’s commitment to living our Why. He has mentored many diverse young professionals over the years, providing them the motivation and base skills to pursue a career in the community development and affordable housing industries.
In 2019, Keith began mentoring Natalee, a graduate student in Ball State’s Urban Planning department. Upon graduation, based on her experience, Natalee was a natural fit for an analyst position on Cinnaire’s Underwriting team. She credits Keith with setting her on her career path. “He was such an inspiration. I would love to bring another person of color or another woman under my wing one day and be able to teach them as I’ve been taught.”
