Investing In Our Community

Home is more than the property where you reside. It’s also the schools, neighborhoods, parks, and organizations you connect with nearby. 

At Mad City Dream Homes, we are committed to helping make Dane County a better place to live, work, learn, and recreate. Here are a few ways our team is becoming more intentional with investing our time, talent, and resources in the communities we serve

Supporting area nonprofits 

Our agents and staff members are engaged with several local nonprofit organizations -- especially those focused on promoting social and racial justice, providing affordable housing, and protecting the environment -- through volunteerism, pro bono work, and matching donations. 

  • We created a community outreach specialist position in 2020 to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations we partner with as well as to create systems that help them carry out their work for the long-term in a sustainable manner. 

  • We highlight nonprofits on our blog, newsletter, and social media each month to spotlight the great things they are doing in our community and how people can further support their work. 

  • We offer a company match if team members choose to give a portion of their commission checks or salary toward a local nonprofit of their choice. 

  • We volunteer, sponsor, and support causes that our team members are passionate about.  

Buying local

Our team loves to support small businesses in the Madison and Dane County area. Whenever possible, we try to use our purchasing power to invest in the local economy. Some of our favorite places to buy gifts include Drumlin Ridge Winery, Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier, Looking Glass Bakery, Dane County Farmers’ Market, DelecTableJust Coffee Co-op, and Orange Tree Imports near our office on Monroe Street. 

Joining partner groups 

Our impact in the community is amplified when we collaborate with other like-minded groups. That’s why Mad City Dream Homes has become members of local organizations such as the Home Buyers Round Table of Dane County and the Monroe Street Merchants Association.

We know this is just the beginning of great things to come! We want to inspire more for-profit businesses to make a difference in their communities, too. Ultimately, we hope that Madison and the surrounding communities will become healthier and more equitable places to call home. 

At Mad City Dream Homes, we’re committed to using our business as a platform to create a stronger community -- and we’re always looking to hire people who believe in our cause. Do you know someone who might be a good fit for our team? Please keep us in mind as you encounter positive, community-oriented people within your world. Thank you! 

Sincerely,
Your Friends at Mad City Dream Homes
