One of Central Texas' leading real estate firms is committed to serving its community in a way that truly benefits those who live there. Kuper Sotheby's International Realty has a program called Kuper Impact, which supports local organizations through charitable donations raised by the company and its agents.
In Austin, Kuper Impact benefits Foundation Communities while San Antonio and the Hill Country offices support the Animal Defense League. Since its founding in 2016, the program has donated more than $75,000 to these local charities.
It works like this: For every completed transaction, Kuper Sotheby's International Realty sets aside $5 and agents are given the chance to match or increase their donation. At the end of the year, the funds are donated directly to the organizations that serve their communities.
Foundation Communities is a homegrown nonprofit that provides affordable, attractive homes and free on-site support services for thousands of families with kids, as well as veterans, seniors, and individuals with disabilities.
"We are incredibly grateful for the creative way that Kuper Sotheby's International Realty has invested in affordable housing for our families, and that they're able to contribute a small amount with every transaction that adds up to a big impact," says Walter Moreau, executive director for Foundation Communities.
Chartered in 1934, the Animal Defense League is a nonprofit no-kill shelter for abandoned, abused, or neglected dogs and cats.
"We're very thankful to Kuper Sotheby's for choosing the Animal Defense League of Texas as this year's Kuper Impact community initiative recipient," says Janice Darling, executive director of the Animal Defense League of Texas. "Their donations will support our animal care initiatives, vaccinations, micro-chipping, and spay and neuter program. By supporting ADL, they are helping to save the lives of the neglected and unwanted dogs and cats in San Antonio."
It's the goal of Kuper Sotheby's International Realty to add more charity partners in the coming years, but for now these two nonprofits are experiencing what happens when a community comes together for the good of all.
