One of my first ‘real’ jobs was at World Vision Canada, a not-for-profit humanitarian organization. During my time there, I established a love for giving back and helping others. That desire has become an important component of our real estate team’s business, and I think it should be of yours too!
When first starting our real estate team, a decade ago, my partner, Ariel Kormendy, and I wanted to ensure that philanthropy and charity were at the forefront of our business. Whether volunteering or donating, I believe that all companies should do what they can to give back and support the causes and people they care for.
There are many ways for Realtors to give back; from a completely unrelated cause you care about to a more directly related community-related cause, there are plenty of options.
We recently partnered with Tree Canada, the largest non-profit tree-planting organization in Canada. Their mission nicely aligns with our company and our industry. From the environmental perspective to giving back to the communities that support us by organizing an annual planting event, we were thrilled to partner with Tree Canada.
We’re excited to announce that our first event is in Milton, Ontario in the fall of 2022. In the meantime we’ll continue to search for more ways to give back.
Heading into the new year, perhaps philanthropy is among your New Years’ Resolutions?
