Community Involvement June 27, 2024

Shane Homes Group of Companies is celebrating 45 years in the business of building strong vibrant communities in Calgary and area with a monumental initiative that will see $4.5 million donated to local charities and nonprofits. Awards of $100,000 or more will be granted to organizations championing causes in health or education, and other organizations that benefit the community at large.

“We are privileged to have served the Calgary community for 45 years,” says founder, Chairman & Chief Visionary Officer, Cal Wenzel. “This milestone is not just about celebrating our history but also about expressing gratitude to the thousands of Calgarians who have supported us throughout our journey. We believe in giving back, and what better way to commemorate this occasion than by supporting organizations that are working to make a difference in the community we’re proud to call home.”

The celebratory initiative builds on a history of generosity first established by founder Cal Wenzel in 1979. By investing in local charities and partnerships—like the Calgary YMCA, the Calgary Minor Soccer Association, and The Cal Wenzel Precision Medical Research Centre— Shane Homes has been an integral part of the Calgary and area community for four and a half decades

“Our journey has been defined by a commitment to customer satisfaction and community service, and we are honored to have had the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of so many families,” says President & CEO, Shane Wenzel. “As we look to the future, we remain committed to upholding the values that have guided us since day one and to continuing to build homes and communities that families love.”
