RE/MAX Creates a Home Away from Home for Children and Families

Thursday, August 18, 2016

For most people, home is not just a place you lay your head at night: it’s a place that you find comfort, love, and safety. Because they understand this, RE/MAX agents around the country support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to ensure that all children have a home away from home while they’re at the hospital. Since 1992, RE/MAX has raised $143 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and locally, RE/MAX raises approximately $325,000 for Children’s National.

It’s no surprise, then, that RE/MAX’s largest fundraising campaign comes not from their customers, but directly from employees. Throughout the year, RE/MAX agents can elect to give a percentage of the money they receive on commission back to their local hospital through RE/MAX’s Miracle Home Program. RE/MAX also hosts a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. During August, the Month of Miracles, RE/MAX’s national website recognizes agents and brokerages that donate, as well as “Miracle Homes” – those homes that have yard signs also indicating the agent’s commitment to improving local pediatric care.

RE/MAX brokerages – franchise-owned businesses – can also host fundraising events as a way to supplement employee donations. RE/MAX Centre in Olney, Md., held its 10th anniversary Charity Gala, raising more than $40,000; RE/MAX Gateway based in Chantilly, Va., raised more than $30,000 when they climbed Mount Kilimanjaro last year, and this year its employees will climb Machu Picchu; and RE/MAX Town Center of Germantown, Md., held a golf tournament that raised over $6,000. Across the region, agents’ efforts prove that RE/MAX offices are passionate about giving back to the community where they do business and making sure that every child has the support they need.
