GLENDALE, Calif. — ServiceTitan, a leading provider of cloud-based business management software for residential HVAC, plumbing, and electrical contractors, announced the results of a fundraising initiative to aid the Joseph Groh Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides financial support to people associated with the construction and HVAC trades who are living with life-altering disabilities.

ServiceTitan raised $10,000 with the help of the trade community and Service Roundtable, an industry best practice organization for HVAC, electrical, solar, and plumbing business owners. For every Service Roundtable member that signed up with ServiceTitan in April or May, the company donated $1,000 to the Joseph Groh Foundation.

The founder, Joseph Groh, was employed for 35 years in the HVAC industry prior to being rendered a quadriplegic after a bicycle accident in 2008.

“Since 2010, the Joseph Groh foundation has made life-changing grants to 33 recipients with items ranging from handicapped vehicles to rehabilitative equipment,” said Ara Mahdessian, co-founder and CEO of ServiceTitan. “Joseph is an inspiration to all of us that know him and his work, and we are proud to help drive support for this cause.”

“It’s great to see new sponsors like ServiceTitan,” said Groh. “As word of our foundation grows, so do the requests for assistance. We are unique in that we are the only foundation who provides 100 percent of its grants to individuals connected with the trades, and the grants have a very meaningful impact on the recipients we have been fortunate to fund.”

The companies that participated in ServiceTitan’s fundraising effort are:

• Ace Pelizon Plumbing

• Air Solutions Heating Cooling & Plumbing

• Anyzek Plumbing, Heating & Cooling

• Auchinachie Services
