Giving Back

Boot Campaign picWe are passionate about giving back to the men and women who have suffered wounds of war. We partner with the non-profit organization, The Boot Campaign whose motto is “When They Come Back, We Give Back”. The Boot Campaign is a grassroots initiative started by five women from Texas known as the Boot Girls. The campaign provides an easy and tangible way for Americans to show appreciation for troops.

At several recent boot camps, the gift of a mortgage-free home was made possible through the donations of employees of Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation along with the Boot Campaign and the Military Warriors Support Foundation’s Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program, two non-profit organizations supporting returning American military troops.

Fairway Independent Mortgage employees have pledged several hundred thousand dollars in donations in association with these programs, to help provide mortgage-free homes to military heroes who have been wounded while serving their country. Over the past several months, other heroes have been honored in Austin, Texas; Hollywood, California; Tucson, Arizona and Washington, D.C. After acquiring distressed properties from financial institutions, the Military Warriors Support Foundation uses funds provided by Fairway to provide accommodations and modifications for the specific heroes.
