Children’s Miracle Network
The power of many to make a difference. That is the true secret behind the RE/MAX® relationship with Children’s Miracle Network. The individual donations of thousands of Associates amount to millions of dollars each year for children’s hospitals. In total, more than $115 million has been raised since RE/MAX became a supporter of Children’s Miracle Network in 1992.
The most effective fundraising tool is the Miracle Home® program, whereby Associates make a contribution to Children’s Miracle Network with each closed transaction. But many RE/MAX offices are so passionate about the Children’s Miracle Network mission that they go above and beyond. From organizing golf tournaments to hosting art auctions, their efforts prove the simple principle that actions speak louder than words. They have learned that genuine compassion in life directly corresponds to meaningful success in business. At RE/MAX, it’s called Premier Community Citizenship—performing ordinary acts of extraordinary generosity.
Since 1992, RE/MAX generated over $130 million for Children’s Miracle Network internationally. In the United States, giving remained extremely strong despite the challenges facing the real estate market. In Canada, RE/MAX continued to make a significant impact in raising funds and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network by increasing their financial contribution by more than 14 percent to an impressive $4 million! All three regions in Canada helped achieve this amazing result, each generating more than $1 million through their support of the Miracle Home program, Provincial Home Lottery in Quebec, and outstanding community-based events across the country. Meanwhile, in Ireland, RE/MAX provided critical underwriting funds for the first Radiothon conducted in the country, which opened many doors to further expansion opportunities.
RE/MAX truly creates miracles for the children treated at Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. Vinnie Tracey, President of RE/MAX International, speaks for many when he says:
“I’m proud to be affiliated with Children’s Miracle Network and every year make a personal gift. At RE/MAX, we believe that giving back is the right thing to do.”
