“The opportunity exists for Renaissance Downtowns USA to help rebuild and reshape our country in a time of desperate need. The contents of our Social Impact Pursuit reflect not only the problems that we are all aware of, but also the solutions that we are so desperately seeking.  This is in our core DNA.”

– Donald Monti, CEO



RDUSA is committed to addressing some of the most pressing issues facing the nation today, beginning with our youth who represent our country’s next generation of leadership.  Disinvested communities, suburban sprawl, lack of housing options, unemployment and rising levels of poverty are some of America’s most urgent socio-economic challenges that our team focuses on daily through the work we do.

RDUSA’s holistic and comprehensive approach to social impact real estate development provides structural solutions that are uniquely tailored to communities with the highest need.  Our impact-driven real estate model can help to respond to these critical needs.
