It’s part of our core mission to go above and beyond for our clients and that includes the neighborhoods we serve. That’s why we donate a piece of the proceeds from each home we sell to one of four local organizations doing good in our communities. It’s how we show a little love to a city we care about so deeply.
2023 Charitable Organizations
We team up with four community partners annually and provide them support through volunteer hours and monetary donations. We also donate a portion of the proceeds from every transaction to the community partner of our client's choosing. It’s our way of showing our gratitude for allowing us to assist with our client's home sale or purchase while giving back to the community that supports us all. The four charities selected by our team for 2023 are as follows:
Explore Educational Funding Foundation
Explore empowers educators to extend learning beyond the classroom.
Their goal is to support 100% of teacher proposals by providing guidance in curriculum alignment and the facilitation of field trips and learning experiences. Explore works to fund field trips and make donations to Kansas City schools to support the encouragement of learning experiences.
KC Shepherd's Center
For nearly 50 years, KC Shepherd’s Center has offered a unique peer-led platform of services aimed at helping senior Kansas Citians stay active and involved, get the care they need, remain independent as long as possible in their own homes, and age well in place. Their model ‘of seniors, by seniors, for seniors’, is reflected in their senior volunteers, governance structures, and programs.
Olivia Bloomfield Foundation
Born with congenital muscular dystrophy, Olivia made it her superpower. In her 10 years, she accomplished a lifetime of work and service, locally, nationally and globally. She was a fearless and tireless advocate for accessibility and inclusion, championing inclusive playgrounds throughout Kansas City and beyond, because, as she pointed out, “Everybody deserves a chance to play."
Olivia's legacy and light will live forever in our hearts. The foundation will carry her torch by funding charities and community projects dedicated to improving the lives of those with disabilities and furthering medical research devoted to congenital muscular dystrophy.
Pete's Garden works to reduce food waste in Kansas City by redistributing unserved prepared meals from restaurants to hungry families. Pete's Garden meals are distributed through social service agencies that serve children and their families. In 2021, their second full year of operations, we distributed approximately 45,000 healthy meals. This year, they expect to distribute upwards of 60,000 meals. Most of the families who receive Pete's Garden meals are headed by single women in low paying jobs, living below federal poverty guidelines.
