“We are deeply proud of the generous contributions and giving nature of the professionals associated with our organization,” says Dave Weaving, chief administrative officer, Realogy. “These funds have helped people through hardship and adversity and made a significant difference to many communities.”
During times of natural disasters, the Realogy Charitable Foundation has collected and donated $1.7 million for relief efforts, among them Hurricane Katrina, the Southeast Asia Tsunami, and Hurricane Sandy, to name a few.
The Realogy Charitable Foundation operates 31 local chapters across 27 states. The goal of the Realogy Charitable Foundation is to provide fundraising coordination and guidance to Realogy employees and affiliated agents who volunteer their time in local chapters across the country raising funds and awareness for the benefit of local charities.
“The Realogy Charitable Foundation’s success is due to the efforts of its volunteers,” says Steven Yagozinski, executive director of the Realogy Charitable Foundation. “They give countless hours to plan and run local fundraising events that produce a tremendous impact. Each chapter is empowered to seek worthy charities in their local community and generate awareness and funding for their causes, and we are proud of their efforts.”
