Beyond its core business objectives, Sundance Bay’s organizational ethos is to be responsible and ethical citizens of our global community.
We hold ourselves accountable and strive to positively impact stakeholders: the communities where we invest, tenants, clients, investors, employees, partners, vendors, and the environment. We are committed to operating economically, socially, and environmentally through sustainable best practices. Sundance Bay’s value-add and development investment strategies very much align with enhancing the workforce housing communities where we invest.
Community Involvement and Philanthropy

Below are a few of our charity partners to which we serve by offering our time, expertise, and financial support :
Everyone deserves to see, but few can afford it. In most countries, supplies for cataract surgery are upwards of $300 per eye. Through our partners, we’ve developed a surgical supply kit for cataracts that costs us only $25. 100% of your donation is used to restore sight. We’ve created a sustainable model through our subsidiary medical warehouse covering all of our staffing expenses, so you don’t have to.
