Newrez Issues First Annual Employee Service Award Through Multiplying Good Partnership

Newrez Issues First Annual Employee Service Award Through Multiplying Good Partnership

Mortgage lender and servicer selects employee for recognition of community service achievements

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa,--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Newrez LLC (“Newrez” or the “Company”), a national mortgage lending and servicing organization, announced earlier this month its partnership with Multiplying Good, a long-standing national nonprofit dedicated to empowering, supporting and celebrating public service. One component of the partnership involves recognition for employee volunteerism through Multiplying Good’s long-standing Jefferson Awards Foundation (JAF) Champions Program, honoring those who put others first. Those receiving Jefferson Awards are empowered to do more, while their stories of extraordinary public service inspire others to action.

Newrez is pleased to announce that Donnie Gravley, Director of Training and Development of the company’s servicing division, has been selected to receive the company’s inaugural JAF Champion award.

Since starting with the company 8 years ago, Mr. Gravley has championed countless giving and volunteer efforts across offices in Houston, Texas, Tempe, Arizona, and in his home office in Greenville, South Carolina. He embodies the Newrez mission of investing in the health, vibrancy and sustainability of our communities through charitable contribution, outreach, and participation. By way of time and deed, Donnie has gathered colleagues to support the March of Dimes, United Way, Harvest Hope Food Bank, Susan G. Komen, The Wounded Warrior Project, and several local schools, education programs, and women’s centers. “Donnie is passionate about supporting local communities and has demonstrated this passion in countless ways over the years. He has led numerous charitable initiatives and successfully engaged other employees in his efforts. We recognize Donnie as one of those people who sees a problem and wants to fix it,” says Liz Monahan, Newrez Chief Human Resources Officer. “Donnie is a conscientious and caring person, and he approaches every giving opportunity with gusto.”

“Engaging my colleagues in community service is very important to me. Giving connects and engages us as a team. It’s the opportunity to feel we’re part of something bigger,” Gravley said of his charitable endeavors. “The most gratifying part of leading these efforts is, for me, planting a seed of giving back and watching it grow into something beautiful. I have seen first-hand my colleagues taking small things and made great strides to give back. With the help of the Newrez NOW (Neighborhood Outreach Works) program, we will be able to do even more incredible things for our communities.”

Over the past four decades, the list of Jefferson Award recipients is unparalleled. Recipients include hundreds of national figures — both public and private —more than 63,000 unsung heroes, and tens of thousands of individuals in communities across the country. These individuals represent the good that is happening all around us, in every community across the nation. Multiplying Good makes it their mission to elevate them and exponentially increase their acts of service.
