Troy Van Sickle was an outsider to the business community of Palm Springs when he founded his real estate consulting firm. This business eventually became a general consulting firm, branching out into marketing, supply chain, and business investment. Van Sickle used the tools he earned through his business courses he took to create opportunities for himself and his family.
Over time, as his successes mounted, Troy Van Sickle started to turn some of his business revenue over to several local charitable organizations in his community in Palm Springs. He found that not only was his community and his customer base enriched by his activities and donations, the reputation of his business was also enhanced as well.
A positive corporate image is important to any business. This is why some corporations form Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives to encourage employees to pitch in to their communities, and donate proceeds themselves.
Troy Van Sickle saw immediately the benefits of his pledge to his community to pitch in and help where he could. That’s why he continues to support several charitable organizations in the area, including his local Boys and Girls Club, and the local library system. Van Sickle is looking into options for new public infrastructure with property developers as well in the near future
