Royal LePage Shelter Foundation

   As we are committed to strengthening the communities where we live and work, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate     company with its own charitable foundation. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated   exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.

   Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 30,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund. Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $20 million. On an annual basis, we support approximately 200 local women’s shelters and 40-50 violence prevention programs through our national partnerships. Royal LePage agents donate a portion of their commissions to the Shelter Foundation and Royal LePage offices across Canada organize local fundraising events. Our brokers, agents and staff also volunteer and provide tangible gifts (e.g. clothing, toys, gift cards) to benefit the women and children staying in their local shelters.

There are many ways that offices and individuals can support the Shelter Foundation. These include:
  • Host a fundraising event: Royal LePage offices have hosted a wide range of fundraising events. These include BBQ lunches, gala dinners, golf tournaments, curling bonspiels, softball tournaments, dance-a-thons, walk-a-thons, live and silent auctions, coin drives, bake sales, clothing sales and more. The sky’s the limit! 
  • Participate in Shelter Foundation events: This includes the annual Walk A Mile event hosted in September at the Fredericton City Hall.
  • Support your local shelter through the donation of tangible items to benefit women and children. This could include holiday gifts, new clothing or household items to help a woman moving out of the shelter. Please always contact your shelter partner directly prior to making this type of donation to determine what their needs and priorities are at the time. http://www.womenintransitionhouse.ca/contact/
