CoStar Group Honored With 2013 Communitas Award For Community Service

WASHINGTON, May 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoStar Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSGP), commercial real estate's leading provider of information, analytics and marketing services, today announced that the Communitas Awards selected CoStar as a 2013 honoree in the Community Service category. The award recognizes CoStar for the success of its company-wide philanthropic program CoStar Builds.

The Communitas Awards is an international effort to recognize exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals that are unselfishly giving of themselves and their resources, and those that are changing how they do business to benefit their communities. Nominees are evaluated based on the extent and effectiveness of their efforts. The Communitas Awards is an outgrowth of the pro bono recognition program of the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP).

"CoStar has a deep commitment to giving back to our local communities, and we are extremely proud to be recognized for this commitment," said CoStar Group Founder and CEO Andrew C. Florance. "From our partnerships with local shelters and soup kitchens, to volunteer activities that support the environment, we actively work to ensure that our employees have ongoing opportunities to make a positive impact on the communities that have supported us over the years."

CoStar completed numerous volunteer projects nationwide under its CoStar Builds banner in 2012, including a cross-office effort to collect coats for victims of Superstorm Sandy in partnership with New York Cares, and donating nearly 200 pairs of shoes and "gifts of sight" to children in need through a partnership with TOMS Shoes. CoStar Builds has continued its momentum in 2013, having already completed several volunteer activities across the company, with dozens more planned for the remainder of the year.
