Giving back has always been a big part of who we are. In the early days of Windermere, it was pretty simple; we would see a need and help any way we could. But as we grew, we realized we could accomplish much more if we had a common purpose. That’s how the Windermere Foundation was born.
We started with an idea that would give every Windermere agent the ability to make a difference. Housing is our business, so helping homeless families seemed like a natural fit. We later expanded that to include low-income families, with an emphasis on helping children.
For the past 30 years a portion of every Windermere agent’s commission has been donated to the Windermere Foundation. Having 100% participation gives us a common purpose and sends a powerful message about our commitment to the community.
Last year alone we provided funding to hundreds of organizations throughout the Western U.S., including homeless shelters, food banks, schools, hospitals, community centers, and more.
Babies in need of diapers and formula. Families with critically ill children in need of housing. Kids with no shoes or school supplies. For the past 30 years, these are the types of needs the Windermere Foundation has helped meet thanks to the collective generosity of our agents and community.
