About Antis Foundation
Antis Foundation was founded in 2016 as the philanthropic entity of Antis Roofing and Waterproofing, deeply committed to charity and social responsibility from its inception. Antis Foundation was established with the mission to take care of the people of Orange County by keeping a roof over their heads, to keep families strong, happy and healthy. To maximize its efforts and impact, the foundation gives back through roof maintenance, but also by supporting both local and national charitable organizations that contribute to the many demographics in the community. Antis Foundation is set up as a donor-advised fund with OneOC, a nonprofit organization committed to accelerating nonprofit success.
Orange County Roofing Company gifts charitable cards to all stakeholders to spread joy this season.
IRVINE, CALIF. (December 20, 2016)–Antis Roofing & Waterproofing has a history of giving back and collaborating with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County where they donate every roof installation for them. This year, above their annual giving and volunteering, they decided to send out 2,000 charitable giving cards as a way to show their appreciation for vendors, employees, partners, customers, and friends.
These charitable giving cards have funds on them that the recipient can allocate to any non-profit organization registered with the IRS as a 501(c)3. They were created by OneOC, a local organization that accelerates non-profit success in Orange County. At Antis, these charitable giving cards are already used each week as gifts for employees when they do an outstanding job, or to receive recognition. Founder, Charles Antis was noticing what an impact it made on the team when they were able to share the story of which charity they chose to give their card to. It’s become a cornerstone of the Antis culture and favorite part of each week.
“At Antis we believe in generosity with all stakeholders at all times – it’s even in our employee manual! We err on the side of being generous and hope to be known for showing goodwill.” Says CEO and Founder, Charles Antis.
Philanthropy at the heart of this Southern California roofing company
Charles Antis, founded Antis Roofing and Waterproofing in 1989 and this year the Southern California company was awarded the Association for Corporate Growth’s Corporate Responsibility Award. I visited Charles at his Irvine headquarters to encounter the Antis philosophy of giving back to the community while ensuring employees love their work and rate their job the best in their careers.
With 80 employees (25 in the office), Antis Roofing & Waterproofing is involved in roofing maintenance and repair, re-roofing, leak detection and waterproofing, decking system installation and maintenance and dry rot replacement of fascia and wood trim. Its geographic reach is Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties where it works with more than 1000 multi-tenant housing communities and homeowner associations (HOAs). The city of Irvine is noted for its highly regulated residential neighbourhoods. Interestingly new community developments are not in the Antis mix – "I haven’t been on that bandwagon with so much regulation involved" – says company founder Charles.

Conscious Capitalism: 4 Ways to Do Well By Doing Good
By Charles Antis
Antis Roofing & Waterproofing
My business did not start out as a social enterprise or some fancy double bottom line company, but I can say that today we do as much as we can to live those values.
These great concepts weren’t popular back in 1989, when Antis Roofing & Waterproofing started.
I nonetheless had an encounter that changed my life shortly after I opened the company.
I arrived at the home of a single mother with seven children, a leaking roof, and a sight I would never forget: four mattresses with moldy bedding. I realized the family could not afford new sheets, let alone a new roof.
I was a struggling entrepreneur at the time, but managed to scrape together a way to provide a free roof for the family. The gratification of helping this family infused me with a passion for giving, and became my pursuit of conscious capitalism.
To date our most notable contribution is being the donation of every single roof installation for every Habitat for Humanity of Orange County home—half a million dollars’ worth so far. And we won’t stop there. Our sights are set on getting the entire roofing industry to give back somehow!
In the midst of a never-ending drought (for a roofing company that is the ultimate barrier), we remain committed to healthy communities and helping those who need it most. If we can do it, all small businesses can—it merely needs to become a priority. Fundamentally there is one thing to keep in mind: while your business should be built for profit, it can also be built for good.
Here are four other ways your small business can do good:
