From raising funds to support education initiatives for underserved children in Immokalee to mentoring students through real-training tutoring programs, London Bay Homes has been focused on giving back to the community for nearly three decades.
A leader in the Southwest Florida luxury home market and led by President and CEO Mark Wilson, London Bay Homes has contributed immensely to local charities and community outreach organizations.
Known as a respected corporate citizen, supporting great causes such as the Guadalupe Center and the Golisano Children’s Hospital, among numerous others, London Bay’s commitment runs deeper than sponsorships and contributions. The custom homebuilder has provided numerous internships to students at Guadalupe Center and has been a major supporter of their annual signature event for the last several years.
The company also forged a partnership with the Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Kids Minds Matter initiative, an advocacy program for Lee Health designed to raise awareness and support continuum of care to meet the pediatric mental and behavioral healthcare needs in Southwest Florida.
“We’re extremely humbled by London Bay Homes’ leadership and support to fill the gap for services to enhance the quality of life for at-risk and underserved children,” said Anne Frazier, major gift officer for Lee Health. “They are truly invested in our community and have a genuine care for making it a better place for families in Southwest Florida.”
Wilson was also recognized in 2017 by Junior Achievement of Southwest Florida as a Business Hall of Fame Laureate for his professional and philanthropic accomplishments. Throughout his tenure as president of London Bay Homes, he has personally invested in the lives of students throughout the community and served as a student mentor and guest speaker.
Employees have also taken a lead role in the #LBHCares initiative by donating funds to programs, such as Backing Up Carter, Laces of Love, KKIDS, Inc., Youth Haven, Path 2 Freedom, Cancer Alliance Network (CAN), Shelter for Abused Women and Children, and Harry Chapin Food Bank.
“We’re honored to play a part in supporting these vital philanthropic programs that are making a difference in the lives of children and families,” said Wilson.
