Community Involvement

Monarch owners, Bob & Kathy Nicolls, currently donate at least $25,000 per month to charitable causes, with an emphasis on helping low income families within the markets in which we own properties.

Besides their personal interests (The University of Iowa, Family Homestead, and the Catholic Church), our charitable giving is focused on keeping a roof over people’s heads and food in their stomachs. We are always looking for organizations, within the markets where we own properties, which support our residents.

Following Hurricane Harvey, 10 Monarch employees from across the country traveled to Houston and spent 14 working days restoring 6 homes to habitable conditions just a few weeks after the disaster.

Additionally, we coordinate at least one activity per year at which our corporate staff can physically volunteer. We encourage our staff on sites, to gather together and participate in events for which they are passionate.

We love to give to causes that support our residents and employees, so any employee with a suggestion for a donation should contact Kathy Nicolls if they are involved with a charity meeting the criteria above and a donation will be considered.
