Ellie Mae and MBA Opens Doors Foundation Announce Fundraiser in Conjunction with Ellie Mae Classic Community Pro-AM
Goal of $100,000 in donations will support families with critically ill children
PLEASANTON, Calif. – June 5, 2019 – Ellie Mae® and The MBA Opens Doors Foundation (Opens Doors) today announced that the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am, sponsored by HousingWire, will include a fundraiser aiming to raise $100,000 for the foundation. The Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am is a part of the week-long Ellie Mae Classic Web.com golf tournament, taking place July 29 – August 4 at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, California.
Interested participants can sign up for a Pro-Am team, other on-course sponsorships throughout the tournament, or simply make a donation to Opens Doors by visiting The Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am – Opens Doors campaign page. The Ellie Mae Classic will contribute $25,000 to Opens Doors, and Ellie Mae will match donations up to $25,000.
Opens Doors provides rental and mortgage payment assistance to families with critically ill children, allowing parents and guardians to be by a child’s side during treatment, without fear of jeopardizing their home.
“We are fortunate that our mission of providing housing assistance to families with critically ill or injured children is shared across the mortgage industry,” said Deborah Dubois, President of the Opens Doors Foundation. “Thanks to the Ellie Mae Classic and the gracious donations from Ellie Mae and leaders like Opens Doors Board Member Jim Deitch, we have the opportunity to raise the funds needed to help families across America who otherwise would have to make the decision to stay with their child during treatment or to go work to keep a roof over their heads.”
Ellie Mae has served as the title sponsor for the tournament stop for the past four years, bringing together some of the world’s best golfers, celebrities and professional athletes in other sports, including Golden State Warriors All-Star guard, Stephen Curry.
“We are thrilled to host the Ellie Mae Community Pro-Am at the Ellie Mae Classic for the second year,” said Jonathan Corr, President and CEO of Ellie Mae. “This event brings together mortgage industry professionals from across the ecosystem for a great day of golf that ultimately benefits a fantastic cause. We look forward to reaching our goal of $100,000 for Opens Doors.”
Opens Doors has helped nearly 3,500 families from 48 states since 2012. Through the generosity of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), which pays the operational expenses, Opens Doors is able to pass on 100% of donations received to families in need. Potential recipients of the grants are identified through the Foundation’s ongoing relationship with 10 children’s hospitals in Washington, D.C.; Boston; Dallas-Fort Worth; Houston; Denver; Northern and Southern California; Akron, Ohio; and Indianapolis.
