#TeamloanDepot is passionately committed to improving the hundreds of communities in which we live and work. Inspired by our CEO Anthony Hsieh, we regularly come together to organize giving campaigns reflecting his beliefs in serving and supporting the advancement of America’s youth. It’s often said there’s no better investment than one made to improve the life of a child.

During a recent 48-hour giving campaign, #TeamloanDepot raised $20,650 for THINK Together, a Southern California-based non-profit organization that partners with schools and communities to foster youth educational excellence. So inspired by the story and the generosity of #TeamloanDepot, Anthony added an additional $10,000 to bring the donation total to $30,650 for the deserving charity.

“We are just so grateful to support this cause,” said Chad Smith, EVP, direct lending production at loanDepot. “Our giving efforts begin with our CEO, Anthony Hsieh, who came from humble beginnings and continually encourages us to be actively involved in the communities in which we live and work.”

THINK Together knows over a long summer break, many elementary-aged children can lose two to three months of progress they’ve worked to make in reading and math skills. Known as the “summer slide,” these losses can erode their progress and leave them 2.5-3 years behind their peers by fifth grade. But a robust summer learning experience that THINK Together provides can make a significant difference, and help keep them on track.
