CIMG Residential Mortgage to Plant Longleaf Pine Seedlings as Part of Giving Back Initiative
Chapel Hill, North Carolina – CIMG Residential Mortgage, the premier independently owned and operated mortgage banker in the Triangle, launched a new initiative to plant one longleaf pine seedling for every new mortgage processed throughout the year in 2021 and beyond.
As part of CIMG’s Giving Back program, which focuses on meaningful ways to contribute to their local communities, CIMG has partnered with The Nature Conservancy in North Carolina in their work to restore longleaf pine habitats across North Carolina.
“At CIMG, giving back to our local community is an integral part of the company culture,” said Jeremy Salemson, CEO of CIMG. “We launched our Giving Back program three years ago and we are thrilled to be able to contribute to the restoration of the longleaf pine forests so essential to the North Carolina ecosystem.”
The longleaf pine tree planting initiative highlights CIMG’s ongoing commitment to the environment while also contributing to the health and sustainability of the forests of North Carolina. As part of Giving Back, CIMG is also working on plans with team members and partners to participate in locally organized programs to plant trees directly in the communities where CIMG operates.
Since 1997, CIMG has put over $1.2 million back into the communities they operate in through sponsorships and other charitable contributions. They work regularly with several local non-profits, including the Interfaith Food Shuttle and TABLE, have built homes with Habitat for Humanity, and cleared land with the Triangle Land Conservatory. In 2020, CIMG made their first annual donation to The Fair Housing Project of Legal Aid of North Carolina, who works to eliminate housing discrimination and to ensure equal housing opportunity for all people.
