Since 1994, the developer has raised well over $11 million for a variety of charitable organizations centered around battling breast cancer and helping children and schools succeed.
“Kids and cancer are our two biggest philanthropic areas,” said Carrie Geldner, chief marketing officer.
For the past 19 years, the company has been involved in the fight against breast cancer. Geldner said company founder Stanley Tanger’s wife, Doris, had been diagnosed with breast cancer about three decades ago and when the company was pondering which charities to support, “breast cancer was the first thing that came to mind.”
Every fall, Tanger’s Pink Campaign raises funds that are donated to 20 breast cancer organizations through the Stanley K. Tanger Breast Cancer Fund.
