Mariani Landscape Signs on with 5-years of Support as Highland Park Community Foundation Corporate Champion
Mariani Landscape, the largest privately owned residential landscape company in the United States, has made a generous 5-year financial commitment to the Highland Park Community Foundation (HPCF) and our community. As the latest prominent business to sign on in 2022 to the HPCF Corporate Champion Program, their Bronze Level investment will provide monetary resources needed to support the HPCF's mission to address unmet needs and expand opportunities for all Highland Park and Highwood residents.
"We are incredibly appreciative of the significant donation that Mariani Landscape has pledged to support the Foundation's efforts," said Betsy Brint, Chairman, Highland Park Community Foundation. "The opening of their Highland Park Design Studio is not just a business investment - it is an investment in the people who live here. We are thrilled to see their commitment to our community and to helping us further our mission."
"We are committed to the Highland Park community and want to support it in every way we can," said Frank Mariani, Chief Executive Officer of Mariani Landscape. "We've planted roots with our brand new Mariani Design Studio right up in town at Sheridan and Vine--it will be the premier landscape design facility of its kind. And of course, we're extremely excited to be making a five-year commitment to support the Highland Park Community Foundation."
The Foundation was incorporated on March 10, 1992. For the past 30 years, the HPCF has supported nonprofit organizations and agencies that serve Highland Park and Highwood residents. Annual grants distributed by the HPCF, totaling a robust $3.6 million, have addressed needs of Highland Park and Highwood residents that fall into 5 main categories: education, human services, senior services, services for individual with disabilities, and the creative and cultural arts. Since March of 2020, the HPCF has also distributed $240,000 in emergency grants to address urgent needs caused by the pandemic. "We are most grateful," continued Betsy. Mariani's generosity will ensure a better quality of life for children and adults throughout Highland Park and Highwood."
