As you may know, one of the core values of Integrity Real Estate Group is giving back to the communities where we live and work. In addition to NOT following the standard industry practice of charging clients a per transaction “administration fee” of $300-$595, on top of the commissions charged, the agents at Integrity contribute a portion of their commissions for each real estate sale to a pool of funds designated for distribution to local nonprofit organizations. At the end of each year, we donate the funds to grass roots charities that are making a difference in the lives of others where we live and work.
As we celebrate our seventeenth year in business at Integrity, we are honored and proud to contribute to these organizations who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others, and we are grateful to our clients and agents who make these donations possible. Your continued confidence and trust in us help us continue to grow and give back to the community.
Many non-profit organizations have become so large that only a small portion of donated funds go to supporting their missions. We choose to contribute to those who are focused solely on the recipients of their services where the most good can be accomplished.
In 2022 and 2023 contributions were made to the following 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. Check out the links to see if there’s a non-profit that supports a cause close to your heart:
