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.
For example, RE/MAX Associates have always been among the leaders in their communities, devoting time and dollars to countless charities and local causes. Committed to their own personal charities, RE/MAX Associates and offices contribute tens of millions of dollars annually to their respective communities.
At the network level, RE/MAX sponsorship of the Children's Miracle Network and its affiliated hospitals is a prime example of RE/MAX community citizenship. One of Children's Miracle Network's largest corporate partners, the RE/MAX network in Canada has raised over $64 million for the charity since 1992. The hallmark of Children's Miracle Network is that 100% of every dollar raised in a community stays there to help children in need who are served by participating hospitals in the local area. For further information about the RE/MAX and Children's Miracle Network affiliation please contact Marie Sheppy, Senior Coordinator, Corporate Affairs, at RE/MAX of Western Canada (firstname.lastname@example.org) or link to www.childrensmiraclenetwork.ca.
The Miracle Home® Program, exclusive to RE/MAX International, allows a RE/MAX Associate to donate a portion of every transaction to Children's Miracle Network. The partnership underscores Sales Associates’ involvement in the communities where they live and serve.
The cornerstone of RE/MAX´s support of the Children´s Miracle Network is the RE/MAX-CMN MIRACLE HOME Program. It has proven to be one of the most successful cause-marketing programs that CMN has developed with a corporate sponsor. RE/MAX Sales Associates designate listings to be a Miracle Home, and donate a portion from the sale of each home towards the CMN member that serves their area.
If you see a RE/MAX lawn sign with a Miracle Home logo on it, know that the sales associate behind the sign believes in giving back to the community they do business in. When listing or purchasing a home, call RE/MAX and request an associate participating in the MIRACLE HOME program!
RE/MAX River City has been proud to be the largest contributing RE/MAX office to CMN in Edmonton annually since 2006.
We are proud to be called a Miracle Office, meaning we have 100% involvement by all of our REALTORS.
As well, RE/MAX of Western Canada created the "Quest for Excellence Program". This bursary program was established to recognize the success and on-going pursuits of Western Canadian students. A "Quest for Excellence" involves any student in Grade 12 who demonstrates great feeling and passion, commitment and dedication, positive attitude and enthusiasm for the subject chosen. RE/MAX presents 24 bursaries of $500 each regionally. The categories are Leadership, Sports, Technology and Trades, Fine Arts, Performing Arts and Community Service. RE/MAX is proud to recognize students, in the very communities in which we live and work, for their outstanding achievements. Education is the building block of our future and if the children we hear from every day are any indication, our future has never been brighter. For further information or to apply for the Quest for Excellence scholarship, contact Marie Sheppy, Senior Coordinator, Corporate Affairs, at RE/MAX of Western Canada (email@example.com or call 1-800-563-3622).

The REALTORS® Community Foundation has been empowering Edmonton and area charities since 1986. We exist to engage the REALTOR® community as donors, volunteers and champions for local grassroots charities.
Last year over a quarter million dollars was granted to 29 charities, adding to our running total of $4.2 million in giving since we were founded - that's a lot of lives changed thanks to Edmonton and area REALTORS® who generously contribute funds for every transaction, participate in fundraising events and volunteer their time.
The charities we fund are pillars of thriving communities. We primarily fund organizations rooted in alleviating homelessness, providing shelter, eliminating hunger and preventing crime. Each year, applications for organizations that empower individuals and communities to realize their fullest potential but don't naturally fall into our four pillars are also considered as special projects.
