2007 will be the first full year of operation for the First Weber Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit, public, charitable foundation to which anyone can participate. We are pleased to be one of just a few real estate foundations in the country and so pleased to say that through the contributions of First Weber agents, employees and owners, the First Weber Group Foundation distributed more than $200,000 since it’s inception.
The list of the Giving Program recipients is long and includes:
Easter Seals Wisconsin
Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund
Habitat for Humanity
Sunshine Place Inc
Nuestro Mundo Inc and many more.
The list of "Matching Gifts" in which the Foundation matched the gift given by employee or agent, is even longer and includes:
American Heart Association
Big Brothers and Big Sisters
Clean Wisconsin Inc.
Gathering Waters Conservancy
Muscular Dystrophy Association
Shriners Hospitals for children and many more.
Part of the 2007 Foundation program was to build a habitat house for the Wells family. Agent Rose Freidel said "Working on the Habitat home was a lot of fun. I got to know my co-workers outside the office and felt I was really accomplishing something."
We’ll do more good in 2008!
