What does it mean to
“Live With Character?”
Just as our buildings have unique character, so do the people who call them home. After discovering some unique stories and thoughtful intentions of Veritas residents in 2019, we decided to launch the 2020 Live With Character campaign to feature a few of the impressive examples of character.
Each quarter, Veritas will feature a chosen “character” on the website and social channels – either a resident of a Veritas building or someone nominated by one – who exemplifies special characteristics that make an impact in the greater Bay Area community outside of their paid employment. Veritas will reward each a $1,500 cash prize, to be donated to a cause of their choice or to directly fund their efforts to make a difference.
At the end of the year, one of the 4 characters will also be eligible to win a $5,000 prize, selected by a five-person panel. Each winner’s collective achievements will also be featured in a prominent local publication.
