The First Weber Foundation donated more than $350,000 in 2017 (and more than $2 million since inception!)

 

Since we are “The human side of real estate,” it’s only fitting that First Weber give back to the communities that have been so integral to their success.  With over 80 percent of First Weber  agents and employees participating in the First Weber Foundation, the fundraising starts with agents and office staff donating something from each commission or pay check.

The mission of the Foundation is centered on the idea of creating a stronger commitment to the communities where First Weber agents and employees call home.
