1. Leading by Example

    At Neal Communities, we lead by example. Lending a helping hand to the community has always been a top priority from everyone at Neal. Neal Communities has donated funds for wildlife preservation; school projects, field trips and programs; humane animal services; healthcare and the arts.

    Here are some of the ways that Neal Communities has given back recently:

    Forest Creek Park Dedication

    Neal Communities’ trademark starts with preserving the natural characteristics of every piece of land and adding to it to enhance and protect these features.

    This past summer, Neal dedicated a new park in its Forest Creek community in Parrish to the Lescenski family, who owned the land from 1954 until Neal purchased it in 2004. The family’s former property makes up the third phase of Forest Creek development.


    Green Building

    Neal Communities has employed BuildSmart initiatives since 1999 and offers an array of Build Green choices for products that you can select for your home. We also provide tips from BuildSmart on cooling and heating homes efficiently, ways to conserve water and reduce appliance and lighting energy consumption.

    This September, Neal Communities was recognized by The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) as “Builder of the Year” at its Green Trends Conference at the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota. This is another fantastic example of how Neal takes giving back to the next level.


    This July, Neal Communities donated its fifth payment of $20,000, to complete a $100,000 total gift, towards the Lakewood Ranch office building campaign for space shared by the Manatee Chamber of Commerce and United Way of Manatee County. Neal was a top-level benefactor of the building campaign, joining over 130 businesses, organizations, and individuals who worked together over the past five years to support the project.

    Neal Communities is committed to building communities, not just constructing homes. That means we are involved on many levels and invest in the people that make this a great place to live and raise a family. Pat Neal has always believed that “The people who live in a Neal Community expect and deserve our support.”
