Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to PAST&E
This $1,195 Donation will Allow Portland After School Tennis and Education
to Provide Academic and Athletic Support to Low-income Children
Portland, Ore.—July 18, 2013—Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, Inc. presented a check at its Northeast Portland branch to Portland After School Tennis & Education (PAST&E), a nonprofit organization located in North Portland that partners with families, schools, and volunteers to help at-risk K-12 students achieve academic and athletic success.
PAST&E will use the $1,195 to take students who are participating in their summer program on a field trip to the Audobon Society Sanctuary. During after-school and summer programming, PAST&E provides one-on-one academic tutoring, tennis lessons, nutrition/fitness curriculum, parent education, and more to its scholar athletes.
Windermere has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income families and giving to the community. In addition to helping PAST&E, Windermere associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation — a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $1,000,000 to programs that support low-income and homeless families in the Portland metro and north Oregon Coast area.

About the Windermere Foundation
For every home that is bought or sold through Windermere, the Windermere Foundation donates a portion of the proceeds toward supporting low-income and homeless families in our communities. What started in 1989 as a grassroots foundation has grown to encompass ten states and has raised $25 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance, and other services to those who need our help most.
In Oregon, Windermere has raised more than $1,000,000 for the Windermere Foundation in support of local organizations offering housing and services to homeless and low-income families. Organizations such as Bridge Meadows, New Avenues for Youth, and Providence Portland Medical Foundation-Guest Housing were included in the 2012 giving.
