Windermere Foundation

 

As co-chair of our Windermere Foundation chapter, it is my privilege to introduce you to the wonderful work accomplished by the Windermere Foundation and tell you…. you're a part of it all! If you've bought or sold a home through Windermere Real Estate, you're a part of the Windermere Foundation, and you've made a positive difference in the lives of your neighbors in need.

For the past 26 years, the Windermere Foundation has donated a portion of the proceeds from every home purchased or sold towards supporting low-income and homeless families in our communities. What started in 1989 as a grassroots foundation serving families in need in Washington State, has grown to encompass ten states and has raised over $28 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance, and other services to those who need our help the most.

At our company, giving to the community is important to us and to our agents and staff. Over the past 17 years, we have raised more than $2.8 million for the Windermere Foundation for use by more than 153 non-profit agencies offering housing and services to low-income families in our local area. Some of the organizations we've been involved with include:
