Giving Back

$500 to local schools.jpg

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.

Here is the list of organizations that have received donations so far

MAKING A DIFFERENCE ONE SALE AT A TIME

MAKING A DIFFERENCE ONE SALE AT A TIME

In 2015, Angel and I made a very public commitment to donate a portion of our income from every sale we completed.  Since then, schools such as Delaveaga Elementary, Santa Cruz Gardens, Branciforte Middle School and Westlake Elementary have all received donations. (Click here to see full list of donations)

We are firmly committed to supporting local school systems. We voted YES! on Measure O and P. We never miss the opportunity to help with fundraising.  We understand that it takes a village, and that every little bit helps.

We are lucky to have had the opportunity to work with very close friends of ours on a sale and purchase. This family designated the Santa Cruz Gardens Home and School Club as the recipient of the donated funds. Here is where the story gets really good.  Rather than just forwarding the donation on to the Home and School Club, this family advocated tirelessly to see that the funds would be put to good use.  The $1000 donation on its own wouldn't fund an entire program, but, with the Home and School Club matching the donation, Santa Cruz Gardens will be able to kickstart a new Science curriculum.

Science is Elementary will be made available for Kindergarten and 1st graders.  The program relies on a trained volunteer, utilizes small group sizes, and hopes to spark a lifelong interest in science.

Bravo to our friends, to the Home and School Club, and to all of the parents, students, and teachers at Santa Cruz Gardens.
