KW Cares is a public charity created to support Keller Williams associates and their families with hardship as a result of a sudden emergency. Hardship is defined as a difficult circumstance that a person or family cannot handle without outside help. The charity is the heart of Keller Williams culture in action – finding and serving the higher purpose of business through charitable giving in the market centers and communities where Keller Williams associates live and work.
In 2016, KW Cares awarded 537 grants totaling $6,112,634 to KW family members in 30 of the 33 regions and helped provide disaster relief in West Virginia, Louisiana, Canada, Florida, Maryland, Peru and other areas as needed. On a regular basis, grants are being given to those fighting serious illnesses and recovering from life altering accidents. Additionally, KW Cares awarded over $705,000 to the three organizations with which it shares an annual tithe, the Ryan’s Well Foundation, Homes for Our Troops, and the MD Anderson Cancer Center. KW Cares grants augment assistance already provided from an associate’s market center. Working together, market centers, regions and KW Cares are providing much needed emotional and financial support to those in dire need. KW Cares is also able to assist KW family members faced with hardship due to an emergency, with expenses for higher education. It is only through your generosity that KW Cares is able to make a difference in the lives of many in the Keller Williams family. Thank you for your kindness and caring.
Renew, Energize and Donate is an initiative dedicated to celebrating Keller Williams’ year-round commitment to improving our local communities. Each year, on the second Thursday in May, tens of thousands of associates participate in a wide range of projects, devoting their time to renewing and energizing aspects of the neighborhoods in which they serve. Projects are chosen by each individual market center based on a need they see within its community. Recognizing her leadership in guiding the culture of our company, RED Day is held in honor of Mo Anderson, Vice Chairman of the Board, Keller Williams. It’s an entrenched part of our culture and displays the extraordinary effect a company can have when individuals come together to work as a team for the greater good of everyone.
