The Blackie Wills Community Leadership Fund
Formed in 2016, The Blackie Wills Community Leadership Fund was created to honor The Wills Group President Julian Blacklock “Blackie” Wills and his commitment to giving back to local communities. The Blackie Wills Community Leadership Fund actively reinvests in the community to help ensure that everyone has the opportunity to get their basic needs met, and to create a better future for themselves and their family. The Blackie Wills Community Leadership Fund is a component fund within Chesapeake Charities, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
2018 Event Focus: Ensuring Safe and Healthy Homes
Giving back to the communities where we operate has always been an important part of our commitment to being a good neighbor and corporate citizen.
With your support, we are excited to continue our community engagement efforts in 2018, raising awareness and funds to help ensure everyone lives in a safe and healthy home. The dollars raised through this year’s event will provide critical home repairs for low- income individuals and families that preserve homeownership and strengthen communities.
