Ambrose Property Group is a commercial real estate firm in Indianapolis and a valued TPF4Y Partner in Progress. Their president, Aasif Bade, has been a long-time mentor of students at New Tech High @ Arsenal Tech, one of our previous Greenhouse Initiatives, and Ambrose continues to donate to the Foundation 10% of any commission they receive from transactions involving the employers of TechPoint Foundation for Youth board members, volunteers, or other Partners in Progress. We are especially grateful for and excited to announce their most recent donation of over $12,000 to TPF4Y, which will further our mission of Growing Indiana’s Future through STEM-related programs for underserved youth. In light of their continuing generosity, we caught up with Ambrose to learn more about their philanthropic dedication to the Indianapolis community.
As a company who has proven your commitment to corporate philanthropy, can you share with us why you feel it is important for companies to partner with nonprofit organizations?
At Ambrose Property Group, we believe that a company's success goes hand in hand with the success of the community in which it resides. Therefore we feel there is a certain responsibility to partner with nonprofit organizations. These organizations nurture and advance causes that help grow the community in a variety of ways. Being involved in a nonprofit organization is a way for companies to invest and help create a better environment for everyone.
There are many organizations worthy of your support. What made you decide to support TPF4Y?
Indianapolis' technology sector has shown growth and success that it is generating a buzz that compares it to Silicon Valley. Ambrose believes Indianapolis has a tremendous opportunity to continue growing in this field but it is essential to fuel this movement. Therefore, Ambrose takes pride in supporting Tech Point Foundation for Youth because it is organizations like this that will enhance the growth of our community, attracting talent and attention from around the nation that will benefit our hometown.
TPF4Y is committed to growing the next generation of science and technology leaders in Indiana. What do you feel is our state's most important workforce challenge?
While Indianapolis has put itself on the map for technology and science innovators, it is imperative that we focus on retaining the talent that we grow. Our biggest challenge is creating the opportunities and support services to individuals who face barriers to employment or finding resources in these fields.
