VANCOUVER — Local real estate brokers, staff, and owners with Windermere Northwest Living supported three local charitable organizations in the Vancouver area during 2022. Through the Windermere Foundation, a total of $299,800 was raised to support the Community Kitchen in Fruit Valley and Rose Valley Elementary School, with $192,500 specifically earmarked for the Clark County Children’s Justice Center (CJC) following Windermere’s 10th annual gala auction in October 2022, which benefited the child advocacy organization.
“Whether through volunteering or monetary donations, our brokers come together year after year to continue Windermere’s longstanding mission of service to the communities in which we live and work. Their dedication to uplifting their neighbors in need is another example of how Windermere brokers step up in their communities,” said Scott Mitchelson, president of Windermere Services Company in Oregon and SW Washington.
Windermere Northwest Living is proud to be a part of the larger Windermere Foundation, serving the Western U.S. since 1989. Along with launching their own fundraising activities and providing personal donations, brokers donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation for every home bought or sold through Windermere. To date, Windermere has gifted more than $50 million in donations to support programs and organizations that provide services to those in need.
