For Perry Homes, corporate social responsibility is not just a buzzword. Through the Perry Homes Foundation established by Executive Chair of Perry Homes Kathy Britton in 2017, the builder seeks to make a difference through initiatives that support education, humanitarian efforts and the environment.
Britton created the Perry Homes Foundation to honor her father, Perry Homes founder Bob Perry. Since the company’s inception in 1967, Mr. Perry was passionate about serving others and giving back to the community
The mission of the Perry Homes Foundation is to work with local organizations to support initiatives benefiting those who are disadvantaged or less fortunate, to create educational opportunities for deserving students needing financial assistance and to enhance the beauty and sustainability of local parks and communities.
Perry Homes supports three main super charities, called “champions,” that focus their efforts on serving local youth, education systems and military members. The Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, the Houston Parks Board and Houston Area Women’s Center are the Foundation’s champions. Partnering with them, Perry Homes has helped underprivileged students receive books, improved Houston area parks and built homes for veterans.
The Foundation supports other charitable groups through collaborative programs, scholarships, fundraising efforts and donations. Last year, Perry Homes donated more than $1.8 million to 40 non-profit organizations to advance their missions.
In addition to monetary support, Perry Homes’ employees are encouraged to volunteer in their communities. Last year, for example, employees assembled 400 survival kits for World Homeless Weekend.
We are proud of Perry Homes’ efforts to be a good corporate neighbor and strengthen local communities.
