Generous Giving Program for Non-Profits
Use AARE’s Generous Giving Program to help raise money for your charitable organization. AARE’s Generous Giving Program is an innovative program from AARE where we are able to generate significant financial contributions to support charities and their ongoing work in the US and throughout the world.
AARE is a real estate company in San Diego that has a heart to support charities. To that end, AARE has developed a program to encourage generosity. Clients, real estate agents, homeowners, donors, nonprofits, churches and businesses can all participate in the program.
How does a charity qualify to be a part of the Generous Giving Program.
Organizations must be registered and in good standing with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) to be eligible to participate.
Can charitable organizations outside the U.S. participate?
Only charitable organizations qualified under Section 501(c)(3) and located in one of the 50 U.S. States or the District of Columbia are eligible to participate.
How does it work?
A charity signs an agreement to join AARE’s Generous Giving Program. Then if someone wants to support the charity is planning to purchase or sell real estate anywhere in the United States, whether residential or commercial and wants their transaction to support a charity of their choice, they or the charity calls AARE. We refer them to one of our approved referral agents and when the transaction closes, a percentage from the company’s commision will be donated to your charity. Please see examples of charities who have already received Generous Giving Donations here.
Where is the donation coming from?
When AARE gives a real estate lead to one of our agents or an affiliated agent outside our area the agent agrees to pay AARE a referral commission. That’s an standard real estate practice. AARE takes that referral commission and from that, gives a donation to the Generous Giving Charity. The donation to the charity comes from AARE’s referral commission not from the real estate agent’s commission. There’s no cost to the donor who is selling or purchasing the property.
