RISMEDIA, February 25, 2010—CENTURY 21 Real Estate LLC, the franchisor of one of the world’s largest residential real estate sales organizations, announced that with the $2.1 million raised by its franchise system in 2009, it has surpassed $100 million in funds raised for and donated directly by the franchise system to Easter Seals, its sole philanthropic partner since 1979. Century 21 delivered on its system-wide goal of surpassing the $100 million fundraising mark on behalf of Easter Seals during the 30th anniversary year of their philanthropic partnership.
“For more than 90 years, Easter Seals has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families, achieve their dreams and lead fulfilling lives,” said James E. Williams, Jr., president and chief executive officer, Easter Seals. “It is through the outstanding commitment and generosity of everyone who is a part of the Century 21 System that we are able to provide our critical, high-quality services to those who need them. On behalf of Easter Seals and the people we serve, I’d like to thank and congratulate everyone at Century 21 for achieving this extraordinary milestone.”
Easter Seals plans to honor Century 21 for this significant accomplishment on March 11 at its next board meeting in Chicago. Rick Davidson, president and chief executive officer of Century 21 Real Estate LLC, as well as former president and chief executive officer Tom Kunz, will be in attendance to receive the honor on behalf of the Century 21 System.
“Tom and I are very proud of the efforts made by Century 21 brokers, sales associates and staff to surpass our goal of raising over $100 million in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of our philanthropic partnership,” said Davidson. “Easter Seals is our sole philanthropic partner and remains a vital link to the past, present and future of the Century 21 brand.”
