Giving Back Locally
Community building at Woods Bros Realty is more than just land development and real estate sales; an integral part of why we do what we do is to make our places better, and that means not only volunteering in our communities but supporting community efforts with our dollars. Our managers, sales associates and staff are actively involved in causes we care about because we know we can make a difference, every day.
One manifestation of our service to the places we call home is the Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving, created by Pace Woods, Sr., a tradition we have continued to maintain.
Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving
The Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving was established 1987 to support worthy causes and people in need in the communities we serve.
Every time a Woods Bros Realty sales professional closes on the purchase or sale of a property, the agent makes a contribution to the Foundation, and the contribution is then matched by the company.
Each fall a committee of sales associates, selected by their sales offices to serve two-year terms, reviews all the requests and determines funding for the applicants. Every organization applying for funds must be sponsored by a Woods Bros REALTOR or employee to be considered by the Foundation.
Charities receiving 2016 donations include: Bridges to Hope, St. Monica’s, Lincoln City Libraries, Food Bank of Lincoln, Lincoln Arts Council, Capital Humane Society, Hope Harbor in Grand Island, Lincoln Community Playhouse, Habitat for Humanity – Lincoln, Voices of Hope, TeamMates, Friendship Home, Huntington Elementary School, Lincoln Children’s Museum, YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, Elliott Elementary School, The Bridge Behavioral Health, Cedars Youth Services, CASA for York County, Make a Wish, Seward Youth Center, Habitat for Humanity – Grand Island, Pinewood Bowl Theater, and Young Life.
Over the years, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated to many deserving entities. Your support of Woods Bros Realty benefits your community in a tangible way, and we thank you for helping us continue making our places better, transaction by transaction.
