Making a Difference
Emet Capital Management believes that there are many vulnerable students facing significant obstacles, primarily in the areas of food insecurity, housing insecurity, and lack of transportation. As a socially responsible company operating in the student housing industry, we are committed to alleviating poverty among college students by diligently working with various partners to create a meaningful impact for those in need throughout our communities. Why? So students can focus on school, not survival.
Emet will work hand in hand with university administrations each year to identify a pool of qualified students throughout approximately 5% of its portfolio who will be awarded six months of free rent. For the 2020-21 academic year, 181 scholarships will be distributed across seven universities.
By partnering with Swipe Out Hunger —a national nonprofit dedicated to ending college student hunger — the organization’s flagship program, “The Swipe Drive,” will be available to qualified students within Emet’s portfolio. The program allows students to donate extra meal plan swipes to students facing food insecurity.
