02 Jun Restoring Hope and Rebuilding Lives
Royal LePage is the only national rel estate company in Canada with its own charity. For more than 20 years, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has been dedicated exclusively to supporting women’s shelters and violence prevention programs. Many Royal LePage agents donate a portion of their commissions the the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation when they help clients buy or sell a home. Royal LePage offices also host special events, throughout the year, raising funds and awareness for their local women’s shelter. All of the foundation’s administrative costs are covered, so 100% of donations raised go towards to cause.
