In 2005 our team reworked our business plan and centered it on supporting local non-profits. Our tag line became "Working hard for our clients while serving the community." When we presented the newly created business plan to our broker - complete with a calendar of the events we planned on sponsoring & volunteering for - he said "good luck with that." His tone indicated his playful skepticism, as our plan did not employ the strategies typically being used by Realtors at the time.
Back then we had no idea just how rewarding this path was going to turn out for us. It was far beyond the win-win of getting our name out in the community while financially supporting some amazing non-profits. It became an avenue of developing great friendships with incredible people. We learned more in-depth about the services the different non-profits provide & how they are positively impacting the lives of those they serve as well as those of us supporting them; truly understanding the real needs that are out there. The events we sponsor have become a part of yearly rituals that we look forward to. In addition to dollars, 1,000s of hours have been spent donating our time. These non-profits keep us connected to our community. While supporting them, it is us who have learned how much we need them.
Oh, and as far as our broker is concerned . . . After witnessing the meaningfulness of our success, he started his own non-profit in 2015 with the same philosophy - "The Results Foundation - Community Built. Community Driven." Not only did we genuinely wish him luck, each member of our team automatically donates to his non-profit with every paycheck we receive. As he puts it - there is no better feeling in the world than being able to help others.
Committing to our community is rewarding in every aspect. We hear more and more businesses - small and large - placing their commitment to community at the core of their strategies. 2020 and COVID-19 have driven home just how integral the non-profits we support have become a part of our lives. In viral times, this is the kind of contagion we can not have enough of.
As a results of the struggles in 2020 related to Covid-19, the NoPlaceLikeHome team sponsored a $20,000 fundraising campaign with a $10,000 match benefitting:
Can Do Canines | Aliveness Project | Out Front
Ruff Start Rescue | Clare Housing | Reclaim!
PFund | Feline Rescue | Avenues for Youth
Results Foundation | Toys4Tots
The NoPlaceLikeHome Team was once again the major sponsor of RECLAIM!s annual fundraising event - Celebrate the Love. Reclaim supports Queer and Trans Youth in the Twin Cities. The 2019 theme was "Healing is Resistance"
Each year we have an annual cookie decorating gathering. 30+ past clients joined us to help us decorate over 100 DOZEN cookies to donate to the Aliveness Project "Holiday Gift Program." The cookies were distributed to those living with HIV/AIDS in Minnesota along with gift cards & essentials.
NoPlaceLikeHome has been a high level supporter of Twin Cities Quorum since 2006. In 2018, The NoPlaceLikeHome Team sponsored every single major Quorum event - National Coming Out Day Luncheon, Quorum's Community Leadership Awards,& Quorum's Annual Meeting/Holiday Party. Amy served on the Board for 3 years - including 2 years as the board president with the goal fulfilled of creating a full time executive director position.
Amy & Kay jumped right in when the heard about the MyTalk 107.1 Diaper Drive for victims of Hurricane Florence bringing an entire vehicle stuffed with diapers. Hurricane Michael was right behind - The NoPlaceLikeHome Team upped the ante by becoming a matching sponsor for that Diaper Drive.
The NoPlaceLikeHome Team had a blast dropping off gifts for the Ronald McDonald House during MyTalk107.1 toy drive in December of 2018! Amy's Kia Soul & Kays Jeep Liberty were completely stuffed with all of the toys they could haul!
Don't be surprised when you see Amy and Kay strutting down the Pride Parade route in their giant Ruby Red slippers!! These slippers have become a familiar site to those who watch the parade - and the crowd chants "There is No Place Like Home" as Amy and Kay click their giant heels together.
