This year, the company took a significant step forward with its donations to the Silverton Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by the President of Silverton. Josh moffitt which provides rent and mortgage assistance to families with seriously ill children. The company also launched Volunteer Leave Hours (VTO), an initiative that started within parent company Clayton.Â®, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, to encourage team members to volunteer with organizations that resonate with them.
In June, the Silverton Foundation achieved the goal of providing more than 100 years of mortgage and rent payment assistance to families with sick children who have been hospitalized or are receiving ongoing chronic or critical care treatments, a great success for an organization which is less than 10 years old. In 2021 alone, 106 families were helped, with 204 months of mortgages and rent paid.
Silverton Mortgage donates to the Foundation on behalf of its new owners to help families with their housing payments. Other donations are made through donations from Silverton Mortgage employees, private donations and fundraising. This year’s fundraisers included a raffle for 2021 Atlanta Falcons season tickets, which raised $ 20,000, resulting in two years of mortgage / rent paid, and the Chip in for a Cause golf tournament, which raised enough money to help 40 families with their rent or mortgage applications.
The Silverton Foundation also partners with a host of hospitals and nonprofits to provide mortgage assistance and rent assistance, allowing parents to focus on their child’s health. Their new partner, Monroe Carell, Jr. Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, joins a long list of partners such as: Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Grady Memorial Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Sibley Heart Center, Habitat for Humanity, Childkind Inc., Bert’s Big Adventure and others.

Since the program was launched in June, Silverton team members have already dedicated 192 hours of VTO to the December 1, 2021.
