Luxury real estate firm partners with Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to inspire philanthropy across the region
ATLANTA, June 27, 2019 – Harry Norman, REALTORS® has launched Harry Norman, REALTORS® Philanthropy Fund in partnership with the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to showcase the firm’s commitment to Atlanta’s people and neighborhoods throughout the metro Atlanta region.
Throughout the year, sales associates contribute an amount from each closing to the Harry Norman, REALTORS® Philanthropy Fund. The luxury real estate firm will participate in matching funds to further enhance the community impact. Each of the 16 Harry Norman, REALTORS® offices will participate in the process to identify and support the important charities in their communities that make a real difference.
“Both of our iconic organizations owe our founding and our success to our mutual bottom-line commitment to serve all people who call this region home,” Harry Norman, REALTORS® President and CEO Jenni Bonura said. “This partnership launches an exciting new opportunity for Harry Norman, REALTORS® and our agents to improve the quality of life in metro Atlanta, tapping the Community Foundation’s deep knowledge of the issues and organizations that make a difference in the region.”
Community Foundation President, Alicia Philipp, agreed.
“When Studie Young with Harry Norman approached us with this idea, it was clear both firms share a deep commitment to our community that could be amplified through this dynamic program,” she said. “Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of those with the least in our region.”
Harry Norman, REALTORS® senior real estate agent, Studie Young, said the luxury residential real estate firm has made a difference in metro Atlanta through 90 years of charitable service and financial contributions.
“For more than 35 years, I’ve matched people with their place to call home,” Young said. “When I joined the board of the Community Foundation, I realized we could make an even bigger impact by creating opportunities to elevate those in need in our communities and help ensure the future remains bright. The acronym for ‘TEAM’ is really true – together, everyone achieves more.”
Harry Norman, REALTORS® has worked with a variety of charitable organizations over the years, such as C.U.R.E. Childhood Cancer, Make-A-Wish, Ronald McDonald House, Toys for Tots and more. The luxury residential real estate firm has raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity per year and hopes to set a new record in 2019.
