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.
In the 2019 financial year, we’re pleased to announce enormous growth in homeowner fundraising efforts and Lifestyle Communities Foundation dollar matching with homeowners raising over $78,000 and the Foundation contributing over $104,000 for a total of more than $182,000 reaching cancer-based charities and organisations.
Lifestyle Communities Foundation is especially delighted to support Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation by donating $2 on behalf of each of our homeowners, marked simply and meaningfully by an annual birthday card. As our communities continue to grow, we enjoy seeing this amount increase year-on-year as more Homeowners move in to join us. In the 2018-2019 financial year we’re proud to announce that this effort resulted in a $6,676 donation to support the crucial work of Avner in pancreatic cancer research and awareness-raising.
