Like you, REcolorado is part of the community! Fostering relationships with customers, employees, and the broader community is one of the most important and meaningful aspects of our day-to-day experience. Here are some of the ways REcolorado gives back to the community where we live and serve.
Colorado Association of REALTORS® Foundation
Every Coloradan deserves a place to call HOME. This is the fundamental belief of the Colorado Association of REALTORS® (CAR) Foundation, which is the philanthropic arm of the Colorado Association of REALTORS. This year, REcolorado’s contribution to the CAR Foundation supported nonprofit organizations throughout the state that promote safe and attainable housing. Adding your support is easy! Make sure your office is enrolled in the program that directs the interest earned on your client’s earnest money to the CAR Foundation. Learn more!
REALTORS® Relief Foundation
REcolorado is proud to join the REALTOR® Community in supporting the REALTORS® Relief Foundation. Together our donations are used to support victims of disaster relief throughout the country. Best of all, every dollar donated goes directly to victims of the disaster because the National Association of REALTORS® covers 100% of administrative expenses.
Knock Knock Angels
Founded by REALTOR® Vickie Lobo in California, and carried into Colorado by Scott Matthias and Barrett Miller, Knock Knock Angels aims to serve newly housed individuals and families who have recently overcome homelessness by providing the necessary home furnishings to make their new houses homes. Join us in supporting Knock Knock Angels by dropping off donated goods at REcolorado.
Corporate Ally Program
The Corporate Ally Program (CAP) is a powerful partnership between the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and corporate allies that is aimed at protecting, promoting, and strengthening the real estate industry. A stronger industry is the foundation you need to run your business and we need to be your MLS partner. That is why we support CAP every year. Together the funding we provide supports advocacy efforts at every level of government.
REcolorado Employees Giving Back
In addition to corporate giving, REcolorado employees contribute to fundraising and volunteer efforts across the community. REcolorado employees are given one paid day per year to support the causes in our community. Additionally, our company has an enthusiastic and generous Employee Committee that organizes many more ways for our team to support the local organizations that are close to our hearts.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
The Making Strides movement raises lifesaving funds that support breast cancer patients, survivors, thrivers, and caregivers through every step of their journey. REcolorado was honored to participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk for the second year in a row. This year nine REcolorado staff members participated in the Walk, and our very own Stacy Herbel generously shared her journey to help educate and support people diagnosed with breast cancer.
Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children realize their potential and build their futures. Our very own Jessi Anderson has been matched with her “little” for just over a year. Here is what she had to say about her experience with Big Brothers Big Sisters:
“I have had the extraordinary opportunity of volunteering with Big Brother Big Sister. My Little and I were matched just over two years ago and have since shared some amazing memories together! It is an honor to watch her grow and be a part of her life. My goal as a Big is to provide a safe space for her to be herself while helping her realize her potential in this life.” “Jessi Anderson – REColorado Customer Success and Data Integrity Supervisor
We Don’t Waste
REcolorado employees were thrilled to volunteer with We Don’t Waste, an amazing organization that works to reduce hunger and food waste in the Denver area by recovering quality, unused food from the food industry and delivering it to nonprofit partners, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, schools, daycare programs, and more.
Back-to-School Supply Drive
REcolorado staff were proud to participate in and donate to the Back-to-School Supply Drive for Denver Public Schools.
Giving back to the community is a priority for many REALTOR® associations across the state year-round, especially during the holiday season when so many in the community need assistance. Please join us, in sharing how you have given back to the communities you serve this year in the comments below!
