PJ Apartments is committed to providing a positive impact in the community and helping its residents to do the same.
We are very excited to launch our new, annual charity initiative.
Over the years we have given to quite a few charities. In order to give more money to charity, we have created a program that allows each tenant to write the check directly to the charity of their choice.This way, you will receive a receipt from the charity so you'll know that your money was received and you'll receive the credit against your income taxes. Your $100 (future rent) will not be taxed again by being paid to PJ Apartments and then donated to charity.
Beginning with the 2017-18 academic year, we have selected three different charities that you can choose from.
During the fall semester, we will ask for your help in developing a list of potential charities which we would like to short list to total of three. Once the three have been selected, we will ask you to pick one and make out a separate check for $100 dollars taken from your December 2017's rent payment. We will forward your check to that charity and we will get you a receipt.
We will keep everyone appraised as to the amounts of money raised for each charity and, at the end of the spring semester, we'll publish an account of all of the money, goods and services that we, as a team, have donated.
We are going to host several fundraising events for the 2017-18 academic year, in addition to The $100 Campaign. If you have any ideas, especially ideas about creating fun activities, we'd love to hear from you. If you think that you would like to help in some way but you don't know how, please contact us. There are lots of ways that you can help even if your time is very limited.
Feel free to check out our events on Facebook.
