Being able to give back to our home community has been a long-standing part of our long-term goals.
In the past, we've made contributions here and there to the Red Cross, American Cancer Society, local sports teams, and donated cash during fundraising drives.
We've also been regular givers of our time- coaching teams, volunteering weekly at the school, and encouraging our children to join us in local fundraisers.
The goal, though, is to be able to give consistently, regularly and with abundance. At the start of this year, Angel and I made a commitment that for every home we closed we would donate a portion of the proceeds to local schools, with no maximum limit. It didn't matter what price the home sold for, what our expenses were, or how much time we spent. We would give.
We've started 2015 at a $500 donation amount per sale, to be donated to a local school of the client's choice. In 2014, we sold 22 homes so we are confident the regular, consistent donation will add up to an amount that can make a difference.
Spread the word, let your coworkers and friends know. If you, or anyone you know is interested in buying or selling, their sale can help benefit local schools. If they're already working with a Realtor, encourage them to ask their Realtor to make a contribution to local schools at close.
Give us a call. We'd also love to hear of any other charities or organizations that would benefit from others giving back.
