1. Sign Up to be a partner and we create a portal for you to use on our site.
2. Spread the word every way you can and send your network to your portal.
3. Big donations come as folks respond!
We are global.
No matter where your Non Profit is in the world our program can work for you. Once you have signed up (using the form above) we will email you a portfolio with helpful information and resources to inspire you on how to use the program.
After you sign up we create a portal for your Non Profit at no charge. This is where you will begin sending people to check out the program.
Your portal will be www.realizegiving.org/yourNonProfit. You can, of course create your own page on your own website in addition and we do recommend this. People may request that we match them with a pro who will donate to a specific non profit. We then match them with a local benevolent Realtor or other pro living in their area who has made a pledge to give. No matter where they live, their sale can generate donations. How cool is that!
This portal on the right is for a Non Profit called African Road based in Portland, Oregon. Click to view it live or visit www.realizegiving.org/africanroad
Wondering if there is a catch?
Well, breathe easy! There is none. We do hope you will send us the story of how your Non Profit uses the donation to help someone. Other than this there are no strings attached. The program is free and all money given is a donation. REalize Giving is able to do this because we work with benevolent Realtors, Lenders and other pros who are willing to pledge a donation from their fee. REalize Giving gets paid by memberships and negotiating an additional percentage from our partner Realtors when we refer someone to them. This, once again, is money that comes from the member's fee and is at no additional cost to either you or the client. Our members are excited to get matches and care about their communities.
Does my Non Profit qualify?
Yes! Your Non Profit qualifies. Our program be used by all Non Profits including churches, homeless shelters, low income housing service organizations, job creation programs, pet adoption agencies, missionaries, community developers, child sponsorship programs and all others! We exist to fund Non Profits and leaders like you!
How much are the donations?
The donations are up to our member's pledges. Realtors often pledge up to 20% of their fee amount. Let's take an example of a 20% pledge from a Realtor. Sam is a Realtor and he is matched to Carla, who signed up on REalize Giving, to represent her home sale. Carla's home sells for $500,000. For this Sam gets paid his normal fee. She would have paid this fee anyway and there is no additional cost to her for our program. In our example, the sale closes and she pays Sam a 3% fee. This would mean Sam gets paid $15,000. 20% (the donation %) of this amount is $3,000. Since Sam has a 20% pledge promise to Carla's favorite charity, they receive $3,000 as a donation.
How many donations could you get in a year?
The sky is the limit! Send everyone you know to realizegiving.org!
How do I get the word out?
After you sign up we will send you a portfolio explaining everything and to help inspire you. You can make it easy by using the avenues you already have. Do you send out newsletters? Email blasts? Social media? Do you have volunteers you can share this with? How about the staff team? Every person has the potential to send one person through the program! The key is to commit, spread the word and be consistent. It's a message you have to keep in front of people so that when they happen to be thinking of buying or selling a home (or get a home loan etc.) you and REalize Giving come to mind. Think about how 3x per month everyone in your network could hear about the program.
Do you have any REalize Giving Members in my area?
We can work anywhere Realtors, Lenders or other pros are located. When someone wants to buy or sell a home in your area, they will sign up on our website. If we do not have any established RG members living nearby, we actively recruit and vette one to match.
