WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radian Group Inc. (NYSE:RDN) today announced its 2022 “Opens Doors Opens Hearts” fundraising campaign generated $154,580 to benefit the MBA Opens Doors Foundation. The annual fundraising initiative hosted by Radian is designed to create awareness and drive donations for the foundation’s Home Grant Program, which provides mortgage and rental assistance to those caring for a critically ill or injured child.
This year, nearly 300 donors contributed more than $77,000 to the “Opens Doors Opens Hearts” campaign, exceeding the fundraising goal set by the company. All funds raised as part of the campaign are being matched by Radian to amplify the impact.
“All of us at Radian are proud to witness the outpouring of support for the MBA Opens Doors Foundation during this year’s tremendously successful fundraising campaign,” said Radian Chief Executive Officer Rick Thornberry. “To everyone who contributed and helped get the word out, we offer our heartfelt thanks—your generosity will provide such an important helping hand for families when they need it the most. On this Giving Tuesday, our hearts are full knowing that the Radian community, including our team, families, business partners and friends, has stepped up to give to this incredible organization.”
Created by the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) in 2011, the MBA Opens Doors Foundation helps vulnerable families with critically ill or injured children stay in their homes while a child is in treatment. Through its Home Grant Program, it provides families in need of mortgage or rental payment assistance with monthly grants of up to $2,500. Radian is a longstanding supporter of the foundation.
This fall, the MBA Opens Doors Foundation named Radian Chief Executive Officer Rick Thornberry as its 2022 MBA Opens Doors Community Champion. The annual award recognizes an individual, group or company for their outstanding work in support of the Opens Doors Foundation’s mission. Thornberry also joined the foundation’s board of directors in January 2022.
