Lifestyle Communities Foundation
In honour of Dael Perlov
Dael Perlov, one of the founding partners of Lifestyle Communities, passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2014. In his honour, we established the Lifestyle Communities Foundation to support fundraising for cancer-based charities. Each financial year, Lifestyle Communities tops up the Lifestyle Communities Foundation with the equivalent of $50 for each home open in our communities.
Lifestyle Communities Foundation supports homeowners who initiate fundraising activities for cancer-based charities by matching dollar amounts raised. In 2017, Lifestyle Communities Foundation donated over $57,000, while our homeowners raised a further $25,000. In 2018, we donated over $67,000, while our homeowners raised over $33,000, resulting in a total donation of $100,000 to cancer-based charities. For the 2019 financial year, the Foundation has over $92,000 to donate to cancer-based charities, largely in support of homeowner initiated fundraising events.
Lifestyle Communities Foundation is especially delighted to support Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation by donating $2 on behalf of each one of our homeowners, marked simply and meaningfully by a yearly birthday card. With over 3,100 homeowners and more joining as we grow, we’re thrilled to have established a sustainable, ever-increasing way of supporting the crucial work of Avner in pancreatic cancer research and awareness-raising.
