With every closed transaction, our brokers donate a portion of their commission to the Windermere Foundation, which is committed to making local communities a better place to live for our most disadvantaged neighbors. Housing is our business, so helping homeless and low-income families — with an emphasis on helping children — has been Windermere’s way of giving back. Over the years Windermere has donated tens of millions of dollars to cover families’ housing costs, help stave off evictions, and fund backpacks full of food so school kids don’t go hungry on weekends.
For 50 years, Windermere has been our region’s most recognized real estate brand and a respected philanthropic leader. We remain deeply rooted in our local neighborhoods and committed to keeping Seattle a place where everyone can have a home.
In addition to the work of the Windermere Foundation, Windermere Midtown supports several local nonprofits, including YouthCare, University District Food Bank, Childhaven and Humble Design. These organizations are dedicated to providing support for children and families experiencing homelessness, making the transition into housing easier, and ensuring that everyone in our community has access to food and shelter.
Once a year, Windermere agents and staff also dedicate a day of work to those in need. On Community Service Day, Windermere Midtown volunteers their time on everything from senior centers and playgrounds to food banks, neighborhood clean-ups and more. These hands-on projects benefit a wide variety of community-based organizations. With more than one million hours of community service logged to date, Windermere is proud to continue the tradition of giving back to the communities where we live, work, and play.
