IAA is celebrating 10 years of helping our communities through the Rebuilding Lives philanthropy. This year’s annual Bowling for Rebuilding Lives fundraiser collected more than $22,000 to support Hoosiers in need.

Rebuilding Lives was founded in 2009, after a year of severe weather throughout Indiana brought devastation to Hoosier management companies, apartment communities, and residents. The Indiana Apartment Association decided to focus a part of its philanthropic efforts on raising funds to assist our industry in times of need.¬†Over the last 10 years, Rebuilding Lives has provided assistance to over 550 units affected by natural disasters over the last 10 years. In 2018 alone, IAA’s Rebuilding Lives donated $24,500 to apartment communities and their residents, helping more than 90 individuals and 40 families.

The 2019 event theme was I ❤ Rebuilding Lives! Congratulations to our winners:
