Community is at the center of everything we do.

We’re committed to enriching the lives of our residents, and to having a positive impact on the communities in which we operate.

Resident Emergency Assistance Fund

The Resident Emergency Assistance Fund is the result of our decision to put people first. This fund provides assistance and financial relief to Tricon Residential residents and their families when they need it the most. We use this program to address a host of needs, including:

  • Meeting rent obligations
  • Paying insurance or medical bills
  • Need for short-term accommodations
  • Building or repairing damaged homes

Founders’ Day

Founders’ Day is a company-wide annual initiative that takes place in September. Inspired by Tricon Residential’s founders, David Berman and Geoff Matus, Founders’ Day was established in 2019 as a manifestation of their commitment to making a difference in the communities in which we serve.

Every employee across the U.S. and Canada is invited to take part in this meaningful day, during which our teams devote 100% of the workday to engaging with their communities and investing their time. Employees are able to give back and foster meaningful connections within the communities that we serve.


Doing Our Part

We support a broad range of meaningful causes that reflect our core values of connecting communities and giving back. We encourage our residents and employees to “pay it forward” and always look for opportunities to help out. Here are some of the local causes our team supports:

Driven by our dedication to creating positive change in the communities we serve, we actively assisted Second Harvest in rescuing nutritious food from going to waste, ensuring it reached individuals in need.

We are grateful for the opportunity to support Second Harvest’s mission of establishing hunger-free communities, and look forward to more chances to give back to those around us!

In the spirit of MLK Day, our Atlanta team had the privilege of lending a hand to our community by supporting Totes for Tots, an organization that provides suitcases & age-appropriate bags to Georgia’s foster children.

We are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children. Together, we can create a positive impact and work towards a more just and equal society.

In honor of National Blood Donor Month, we at Tricon were moved to host our first-ever blood donation event in support of one of our own team members who has been personally impacted by the need for blood donation. Donations not only helped our colleague, but also countless others who rely on the support of blood donors.

At Tricon, community is at the center of everything we do. We are focused on making a positive impact in the communities where our employees and residents live and work – and with causes that matter most to them. As Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

This year, 4.2 million kids will be homeless in America.

Since 1972, Covenant House has opened its doors to over 1.5 million young people experiencing homelessness and trafficking, one youth at a time.

Tricon Residential Team Members participated in Covenant House’s Sleep Out event, raising awareness and funds to support the organization.

COVID-19 has had a dramatic effect on everyone’s lives, but its impact is felt most by those who were already most vulnerable in our communities. At Tricon Residential, we acknowledge that Toronto is facing a housing crisis, which is why we’ve partnered with Red Door Family Shelter to support families with the resources and the time they need to heal and ultimately, achieve their goal of independence.

Families Forward is a local organization dedicated to helping families achieve and maintain self-sufficiency. Our corporate office team participated in a back-to-school drive, providing Families Forward with 50 backpacks, 15 of which were filled with school supplies as an added surprise.

For Operation Christmas Child, our Folsom team filled shoeboxes with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies. The shoeboxes were delivered to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine or disease, as well as children living on Native American reservations across the United States.

Each holiday season, the team in our Dallas-Fort Worth regional office holds a toy drive. Children who are part of Therapeutic Family Life, a non-profit foster-care agency, come to the office and pick their favorite toy. It’s a wonderful day filled with happy children and many smiles all around.

Our team in Florida partners with Bayview Nursing Home in St. Johns County to visit residents throughout the year, providing companionship and delivering treats – and eliciting smiles all the way. It’s a win-win, as our team also benefits from all of the love they receive with every visit.

For City Serve Day, our California team lent a hand by painting homes for the less fortunate. Their hard work supported Acres of Hope, an organization that attempts to break the cycle of homelessness for women with children.

Our employees took to their bikes for the Moon Ridge annual charity ride. The event supports Bert’s Big Adventure, which provides children with chronic and terminal illnesses, and their families, with a magical, all-expenses-paid five-day trip to Walt Disney World®.

After the tragic shootings in Las Vegas, our team members in California took part in the Give a Pint of Hope blood donation event. Participating in this life-saving event was our team’s way of giving hope, knowing that blood transfusions save more than four million Americans each year.

UMOM New Day Centers restore hope and help to rebuild lives by providing shelter, services and affordable housing to people experiencing homelessness. Our Phoenix team was happy to donate warm coats and other clothing to assist in the mission of the UMOM New Day Centers need.

During the Thanksgiving season, our entire corporate office participated in a food drive for Families Forward. We provided a Thanksgiving dinner basket to 118 families, complete with turkey and all of the fixings.

Our team members in Phoenix were proud to support St. Mary’s Food Bank. They filled emergency food boxes and distributed them to individuals and families in need.

Celebrating Arts and Culture

Tricon is a proud supporter of the transformative power of the arts and culture initiatives that enrich, inspire and unite our communities. As a part of this commitment, we support the following organizations:

Fall For Dance North (FFDN) is Toronto’s premier professional international dance festival that exists to break boundaries and remove barriers. With pluralism and affordability at its core, FFDN celebrates, nurtures and amplifies established and emerging Canadian dance artists, creates global connections, and inspires future audiences to sustain the artform.

Our support of the National Ballet of Canada includes sponsoring its world premiere of Swan Lake. Tricon also provides annual scholarships that enable talented underprivileged dancers to attend the National Ballet School.

As gateways to knowledge, libraries play a fundamental role in the community. The resources and services they offer create opportunities for learning, support literacy and education and help shape the new ideas and perspectives that are central to a creative and innovative society. Tricon is proud to support the Toronto Public Library Foundation and its efforts to raise over $800,000 in 2022.

Tricon supports the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), one of the largest art museums in North America, and its mission to bring people together with art to see, experience and understand the world in new ways. The AGO is known for its world-class exhibitions, unique collections and innovative outreach and programming. The current Denyse Thomasos: Just Beyond exhibit is one of many examples of the AGO leading global conversations from Toronto through extraordinary collections, exhibitions and programs. Thomasos had a singular style that employed abstraction as a means to explore contemporary issues of race, the architecture of confinement and our complex relationships to space and place, and the environment.
