EXIT Realty Corp. International, a real estate franchisor with brokerage locations across the U.S. and Canada, today announced a program to match funds raised by its brokerages and agents to benefit Habitat for Humanity initiatives in their local communities.
A portion of every transaction fee received by EXIT Realty Corp. International is pledged to its non-profit organization of choice, and to-date $3 million dollars has been pledged to Habitat for Humanity. EXIT Realty’s affiliation with the non-profit began in 2004 when the company sponsored its first Habitat for Humanity home build in West Palm Beach, Florida. Since then they have sponsored 18 additional home builds in Canada and the US, have participated in a community revitalization project and the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.
Through the EXIT & Habitat: Dollar-for-Dollar Matching Program, EXIT Realty’s involvement with Habitat for Humanity can potentially reach every community where an EXIT office exists. EXIT Associates anywhere in North America can work in conjunction with their local Habitat for Humanity office to raise funds for a specific project or initiative and submit a proposal to EXIT Realty Corp. International for those funds to be matched dollar-for-dollar from EXIT Realty’s pledged pool of funds to Habitat for Humanity International.
“Our new matching funds initiative extends EXIT’s support of Habitat for Humanity to the grassroots level of the local Habitat offices in the communities where our agents live and work,” said Tami Bonnell, EXIT Realty Corp. International CEO. “We believe, as Habitat does, in empowering people to better their lives. Now, we can reach more people than ever before.”
