The nautical double P’s that comprise the logo for Penzance (which started life as Penzance Properties) remain apt for the spirit of the company and its people: Philanthropic Penzance.

Penzance contributes a percentage of profits to support charities and community services focused on kids and families, like the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, Children’s National Medical Center, and Autism Speaks.

Penzance promotes volunteerism company-wide and seeks to host events that encourage employees to participate as a team in support of a special project or activity such as a food bank, warm-clothing facility or a shelter for the homeless.
