The Homes with a Heart program has donated $3,168 on behalf of our clients since our launch in April 2021.
We are excited to announce the launch of the Homes with a Heart Program, a charitable way to buy and sell real estate. The Homes with a Heart Program is designed to deepen our connection to the community and support meaningful causes.
The program is comprised of three key elements:
- Community Contributions: We offer up to 10% of all of our commissions on residential sales to be donated to non-profit organizations. We have partnered with multiple local non-profits addressing a range of community needs. Clients may choose to designate a donation to one of these partner organizations or a qualified 501(c)3 of their choice. **
- Volunteerism: Each agent in our brokerage has committed to ongoing volunteer work with our non-profit partners and other community causes.
- Activism: We are committed to partnering with our non-profit partners in meaningful ways to help elevate awareness of important causes and support key programs, fundraisers and events. We have chosen to partner with local non-profit organizations because of the causes they support and the substantial impact they make in the Tampa Bay area.
End 68 Hours of Hunger: A 100% volunteer organization that exists solely to provide meals to food-insecure children over the weekend. The number 68 represents the gap number of hours between free school lunch provided on Friday and free school breakfast provided on Monday. The Tampa branch of the organization began in 2014 in one school and now serves 23 public and 1 charter school in Hillsborough County, reaching approximately 600 children each weekend.
Hillsborough Education Foundation: Their mission is to strengthen public education in Hillsborough County through advocacy, investment of resources and programs that empower every student to achieve both academic and personal success. Programs support teachers, early learning, mentoring programs and provide resources like WIFI Hotspot access for E-Learning.
School PTAs: Non-profit parent teacher organizations that support local schools and help supplement services through volunteerism and monetary investment in schools programs.
**Percentage of commission to be donated will be between 5-10%, depending on the nature of the transaction.
