REcolorado is more than Colorado’s largest MLS – we are Coloradoans. Our company and our employees are an active part of our community, and we are committed to serving our mission broadly to make our community great!
From supporting the efforts of local REALTOR associations and brokers to empowering employees to volunteer for causes close to their hearts, these are a few ways REcolorado is giving back to the community this year.
Supporting Homeownership in Colorado
REcolorado proudly supports the Colorado REALTOR® Foundation in their vision to help Coloradoans achieve the American dream of homeownership.
“The Colorado REALTOR® Foundation promotes safe and affordable housing, advances homeownership for all Coloradans, and provides housing-related disaster assistance to our neighbors in need.”
Colorado REALTOR Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Colorado Association of REALTORS. Throughout the year, this organization gives REALTORS and the public alike many opportunities to support homeownership, from Colorado Gives Day to REALTOR Appreciation Day and more.
This year, the Colorado REALTOR Foundation awarded grants to the following local organizations:
- Colorado Homeless Families, Arvada
- Colorado Veterans Resource Coalition, Colorado Springs
- Family Promise of Greater Denver, Denver
- Foothills United Way, Lafayette
- Greeley Transitional House, Greeley
- Habitat for Humanity of Vail Valley, Avon
- HomesFund, Durango
- Neighbor to Neighbor, Fort Collins
- Tri-Lakes Cares, Monument
Employee Driven Causes
In addition to corporate giving, REcolorado employees lead efforts to support community organizations close to their hearts. This fall, REcolorado employees are supporting two events.
Light the Night
REcolorado employees will gather one evening in September to carry lanterns in support of the Leukemia & Lymphona Society’s Light the Night. Funds raised through this event support cancer research and treatments.
“Money raised through Light The Night allows The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers. In 2018, LLS helped advance 19 of 21 approved blood cancer therapies. Beating cancer is in our blood.”
In memory of lives lost to cancer way too soon, REcolorado employees invite you to join us in the fight against blood cancer. Walk alongside us at the event or donate to support cancer research.
Strikes for Kids
The REcolorado Employee Committee is sponsoring the sixth annual Orange & Blue Bowling Bash, supporting the Strikes for Kids Backpack Giveaway Program.
“The Strikes For Kids Backpack Giveaway acknowledges the financial burden school supplies can be on families. The purpose of this program is to alleviate some of the back to school stress by providing backpacks filled with school supplies.”
At the bowling event, 75 kids were invited to participate in arcade games, enjoy food, and receive backpacks. In addition, Strikes for Kids will provide 250 backpacks to the Boys & Girls Club Denver Broncos’ branch.
