SALT LAKE CITY – The Domain Companies is proud to announce new local partnerships with three nonprofit organizations through its MyCommunity program at The Shop shared workspace: The Green Urban Lunchbox, Wild Utah Project, and Equality Utah. In partnership with Giv Development, Domain will open The Shop in early 2021 in the heart of Salt Lake City. Centrally located on the TRAX line, this $14 million coworking community exemplifies a new way to work, offering businesses a turnkey, affordable solution that supports safe and easy growth.
The MyCommunity program partners each Domain property with three local nonprofit organizations, facilitating donations and creating volunteer opportunities for members throughout the year. Upon membership signing or renewal, members assign a donation from Domain to one of these partners, creating steady and significant financial support. Each of Domain’s properties strengthens this relationship through ongoing volunteerism, specialized holiday programs, collection drives, and more.
At the heart of Domain’s investment approach is a mission to create true community value through four philanthropic pillars: social justice, food equity, environmental justice, and support of vulnerable populations. This sustained engagement effort serves to enhance the lives of residents and members, support local businesses, and lay the foundation for future progress and stronger communities.
“The Shop is centered around community growth and local support, so we’re proud to partner with organizations doing such important work,” said Domain’s community engagement director Mary McCullough. “Their missions align perfectly with our goal to strengthen and give back to the communities in which we build.”
Making significant long-term investments in the future of Utah, Domain marks their entrance in the Salt Lake market in early 2021 by first opening Mya and following closely with The Shop. Next spring, Domain will unveil Avia, luxury residences in a prime location along the TRAX line. Additional mixed-use projects are planned in the near future.
A food justice non-profit organization that empowers people to connect to their food and community by revitalizing urban spaces and building a resilient food culture. The Green Urban Lunch Box envisions a strong network of communities centered on the cultivation of food.
Wild Utah Project addresses and prevents these types of roadblocks to effective conservation through providing sound science and data-driven strategies to facilitate conservation goals in the state. They focus on the conservation priorities: promoting habitat connectivity, protecting species in conservation need, and restoring vital habitat.
Equality Utah works to secure equal rights and protections for LGBTQ Utahns and their families. They work to create a fair and just Utah through advocacy, policy change, trainings, forums, and events statewide.
