Coldwell Banker Bain (CB Bain), a leading provider of real estate brokerage services throughout Washington and Oregon, and a market leader in home sales in 2017, has announced that its brokers have raised $1,923,180 for community nonprofit organizations via its Community Partnership program.

This amount reflects total donations raised since the inception of the program in 1988 through year-end 2017. In 2017, CB Bain brokers actively partnered with 155 nonprofits, with contributions averaging $1,603.

“We are so proud of the efforts of our brokers in making this program a success,” said Mike Grady, CB Bain president and COO in a press release. “We appreciate the work these wonderful organizations are doing in our communities, and believe it’s important for us to give back in markets where we work.”

Through the Community Partnership Program, Coldwell Banker Bain brokers partner with 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that they feel make a difference in their communities.

In Washington, each time a member from the broker supported nonprofit refers a real estate client to the broker and that referral results in a closed transaction, the broker and Coldwell Banker Bain donate an amount equal to 10 percent of the commission received to the nonprofit.

A variety of nonprofit organizations throughout the region have benefited in 2017, with Coldwell Banker Bain of Mercer Island broker Becky Nadesan contributing nearly $8,000 in 2017 to nonprofit Audi Club Northwest.

“We are so grateful to supporters like Coldwell Banker Bain because without them, wishes for children facing critical illnesses would not be possible,” said Barry McConnell, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington, in a press release. “Support for wish granting is crucial because new research shows that kids who have a wish granted replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.”
