Neighborhood real estate company Living Room Realty raised $50,825 for nonprofits in the very first year of its “Loving Room” fund. The fund was created in March 2016 and collects contributions from Living Room agents on each real estate transaction. Last year ten organizations presented their missions to the agents and four were selected to be the beneficiaries of the fund.
At the completion of each real estate transaction, Living Room clients receive an email about the fund with information about each nonprofit. The client then selects which organization will receive their agent’s donation. The funds are distributed to the charities on a quarterly basis.
“The company was already making donations, but agents wanted to do more, and be directly involved,” said Living Room broker Cristen Lincoln. “Looping in our clients to choose the charity is a brilliant way to share the joy of giving, highlight our company values and create awareness for these amazing organizations.”
