Giving back to support our communities.
The Community Care Program is designed to help RE/MAX Associates give back to the communities where they live, work, and play.
RE/MAX understands that building a great neighbourhood starts with caring and supporting local programs and organizations that make a profound difference in everyday lives. That’s why we put our hearts, our dollars and our efforts behind a wide number of incredible worthwhile charities, right here at home.
A quality that successful real estate professionals share is community involvement. RE/MAX Associates in particular are mindful of the impact they make locally, not just in real estate but as caring citizens. Over the years, our Associates have distinguished themselves as stewards for the betterment of their communities, concerned not only with contribution to their communities but also with the outcome of the contribution. These qualities – known as RE/MAX Premier Community Citizenship – are a dynamic part of the RE/MAX organization.
Children’s Miracle Network
RE/MAX associates are very active in their communities and volunteer and hold fundraising events for the Children’s Miracle Network and countless other causes all year long. In fact, every August RE/MAX celebrates a Month of Miracles, whereby we especially thank our clients for helping us raise over $44 million in Canada to help over 2.6 million sick and injured children every year treated at a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital. All fund raised by participating RE/MAX associates are sent directly the children’s hospital.
To find out more about our involvement with Children’s Miracle Network, contact a RE/MAX office in your area or Marie Sheppy, Senior Coordinator, Corporate Affairs/Children’s Miracle Network Liaison, RE/MAX of Western Canada at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Children’s Miracle Network website at www.childrensmiraclenetwork.ca.

Organ Donor Awareness
RE/MAX is committed to help raise awareness of the ongoing need for organ donation. Canadian Association of Transplantation assists Canadians in making informed decisions regarding organ, tissue and bone marrow donation. The Canadian Association of Transplantation site provides some national information regarding organ and tissue donation, but more importantly acts as a portal to the many provincial organizations that are mandated to oversee organ and tissue donation programs across the country.
For more information on how to register to be an organ donor and for contact information on the provincial organizations that are mandated to oversee organ and tissue donation programs across the country go to: www.transplant.ca
