Together we can make a difference
We believe in supporting our local community. By donating a percentage of our commission from the purchase or sale of your home, we can plant trees that will reduce greenhouse gasses, help orphaned animals find loving homes, teach children to read, give a family a safe space to sleep or put a meal on the table of someone in need. You choose what is most important to you and we will do the rest. Here are a few organizations we think are great!
Basic Rights Oregon

Our organizational work and activism, including direct community education workshops, support the outreach of our continued advocacy as first respondents and has helped community members contribute through direct engagement and legislative value.

Every Child Oregon connects caring community members with vulnerable children and families in partnership with the Department of Human Services. We are dedicated to the flourishing of every child. This is our community. Not everyone can become a foster parent, but we can all do something to care for our community’s children and families.
Our children need you.
