Living in one of the most beautiful and bountiful places is a gift. Working with some of the most passionate and ethical people is a gift, too. 

These gifts and this community mean the world to us. We feel a deep responsibility to actively support local efforts to make a real difference in people’s lives right here. We launched “District Gives” to turn that responsibility into a program in which every District agent participates for the good of our neighbors — and ourselves. 

We chose four categories that correspond with our values as people and as a company. Every year, we choose a local nonprofit within each category to which we provide financial support for the entire year. Our agents give a percentage of their closed transactions, then District matches that amount. 

At the end of the year, we present each organization with a check. That presentation is one of my favorite experiences of the year. We give them our donation with hearts full of gratitude for the important work they do in making this rich community everything it is and will be in the future.

In 2021, District gave to the following East Bay charities in our four categories:

Children and families: Lotus Bloom Family Resource Center

Food insecurity: Alameda Food Bank

Social justice/racial equality: BOSS (Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency)

Girls/women: Women’s Daytime Drop-In Center

In addition to these four organizations, we also provided sponsorships or to:

Berkeley Community Scholars

Berkeley Public Schools Fund

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals

Martin Luther King Jr Annual Fundraising Breakfast

As we embrace this brand-new year, I hope you will take a moment to click on the links above to these worthy organizations and learn about the incredible work they do. Later in 2022, we’ll choose our recipients for this year. If you have a special feeling for an East Bay nonprofit that fits into our categories, please let us know. Learning about the work such organizations and people are doing to improve our community is a gift, too.

All in. Always.
