I’m Andrew Young of Mortgage Wise Financial and Community Mortgage Movement.
What’s the deal with Community Mortgage Movement?
I originally started the Community Mortgage Movement back in 2016 as a passion project. The whole point of the organization is to give back to the community that has helped to make me who I am today.
With every deal that I do through Mortgage Wise Financial, a portion of the proceeds go back into the community. This is done in two different ways: 1) this is my family foundation, which is through the London Community Foundation and is given in the form of an endowment. For those unaware what an endowment is, it is a fund that is a receptacle for gifts given in perpetuity. The capital of the endowment remains untouched, and only the income from the fund is used for ongoing programs and services.
2) The Community Mortgage Movement has chosen six charities, these charities have been screened and vetted by us to make sure that every single dollar that is donated is going towards someone who is in need. We piggy back on the Vital Signs report, which is released by the London Community Foundation and is released every 2 years. This report helps to identify and fund the greatest impact that will help the London, Ontario community.
When we first started in 2016, we were very successful and were able to give back $10,000 to charities within the London, Ontario community. In 2017, we were able to give back $15,000 and are goal for this year is to give back $20-25,000.
