The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.
Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 30,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund. Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $27 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners. Our agents donate a portion of their commissions and Royal LePage offices across Canada hold local fundraising events. Our brokers, agents and staff also volunteer and provide in-kind goods to benefit the women and children residing in their local shelters.
Fittingly, on March 8, a date which is recognized globally as International Women’s Day, our brokerage was recognized as Ontario “Office of The Year”, by the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
We know and recognize that there are many other brokerages throughout the Province of Ontario that are also worthy of this recognition, but we are flattered and embrace this recognition.
Since its inception ten years ago, the National Garage sale events at our brokerage have been a tremendous Community success, raising thousands and thousands of dollars for our local Women’s shelter. These annual events depend heavily on the “hands on” help and support of our sales representatives and staff. Whether collecting valuable items, sorting them on the eve of the sale, selling them on the day of, or grilling sardines on the barby, to everything else that goes along with the garage sale, it would not be possible without the collective effort. So, a big thank you to all of our RLPS volunteers…no effort is too small, we can’t do it without you.
Come visit either or both of our office locations on May 12th, as we once again pitch our tents for this very worthy cause. Or, if you would like to donate gently used items, please contact us!
