A quality that successful real estate professionals share is community involvement. RE/MAX Associates in particular are mindful of the impact they make locally, not just in real estate but as caring citizens. Over the years, our Associates have distinguished themselves as stewards for the betterment of their communities, concerned not only with contribution to their communities but also with the outcome of the contribution. These qualities - known as RE/MAX Premier Community Citizenship - are a dynamic part of the RE/MAX organization.
For example, RE/MAX Associates have always been among the leaders in their communities, devoting time and dollars to countless charities and local causes. Committed to their own personal charities, RE/MAX Associates and offices contribute tens of millions of dollars annually to their respective communities.
The Community Care Program is designed to help RE/MAX Associates give back to the communities where they live, work, and play.
RE/MAX understands that building a great neighbourhood starts with caring and supporting local programs and organizations that make a profound difference in everyday lives. That’s why we put our hearts, our dollars and our efforts behind a wide number of incredible worthwhile charities, right here at home.

In 2009, RE/MAX of Western Canada affiliates raised $1.35 milling, making RE/MAX of Western Canada the largest contributing region in the entire RE/MAX organization. In Canada, since they began their affiliation with Children's Miracle Network over $35.5 million dollars has been raised. These funds were raised through community events and The Miracle Home Prgoram - where a prtion of the agent's funds are donated to Children's Miracle Network. All funds go to the foundation/hospital serving the community. The RE/MAX - Children's Miracle Network affiliation began in 1986.
Children's Miracle Network, with the help of RE/MAX agents helps create miracles by funding medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of more than 2.6 million Canadian children each year. One in four Canadian children visited a children's hospital in 2009.
