Woods Bros Realty gives back through Foundation for Giving

Members of Woods Bros Realty’s Foundation for Giving committee met last month to allocate funds raised throughout the year to local charity organizations.

The Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving was established in 1987 by Pace Woods, Sr. to support those less fortunate in the communities we serve. Every time a Woods Bros Realty sales professional closes one side of a transaction the agent makes a contribution to the Foundation, and the contribution is then matched by the company.

In the fall, a committee of agents, selected by their offices to serve four-year terms, reviews all the requests and determines funding. A Woods Bros Realtor or employee must sponsor each request accepted by the Foundation.

“It has been an honor and a pleasure to have the privilege of working with all the agents and the different agencies our agents are affiliated with,” said Arla Meyer, Foundation for Giving chairperson. “There is nothing better than being able to give back to our local communities, based off of the team effort of all Woods agents and the company. Together we are able to make this happen, and we believe that is what helps set Woods Bros Realty apart from all other companies.”

This year, the transaction donation total was $11,350, with a last-minute plea from the committee’s agents that raised an additional $4,200. Since the inception of the Woods Bros Realty Foundation for Giving, over $275,000 has been donated.

Some companies who were helped by the Foundation for Giving in 2011 include Lincoln Children’s Zoo, Friends of Opera, St. Monica’s, Young Life, Orphan Grain Train (Grand Island), Voices of Hope, Habitat for Humanity (Grand Island), Child Advocacy Center, Lincoln Community Playhouse, Cedars Youth Services, Prairie Playground (Beatrice), Lincoln Symphony Orchestra, Food Bank of Lincoln/Backpack Program, Blue Valley Behavioral Health (Beatrice), Bright Lights, Clinic with a Heart, TeamMates, Foundation for Lincoln City Libraries, Youth Leadership Lincoln, Lincoln Children’s Museum, Easter Seals of Nebraska, Friendship Home, Mourning Hope and CASA – Court Appointed Special Advocates (York).
