Through contributions from thousands of Royal LePage agents and supporters, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation raised $3.3 Million in 2021 in support of women’s shelters and domestic violence prevention programs from coast-to-coast. This has been one of the most significant fundraising results in the nearly 25-year history of the charity. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised a remarkable $38 Million and Royal LePage continues to lead as the only Canadian real estate company with its own branded charity. 

“Thousands of the Royal LePage faithful, their families, their clients, and their friends, worked together during this challenging pandemic year to support women and children in desperate need of safe shelter,” said Phil Soper, president and CEO, Royal LePage. 

Soper was among the 60 Royal LePagers who participated in the 2021 Challenge for Shelter, climbing the British Columbia Purcell Mountains in support of the cause. This bi-annual fundraiser has raised $3 Million to date. 

The foundation is the largest of its kind in Canada dedicated to eradicating violence and supporting women and children seeking safe shelter and a life free of abuse.

What makes the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation truly impactful is that Royal LePage pays all administration costs of the Foundation so that 100 per cent of funds raised go directly towards the cause,” said Lisa Gibbs, Executive Director, Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. “The long-standing relationships in the community between Royal LePage brokers and agents and their shelter partners is a bond, built on commitment and passion for living healthy, happy lives free of violence.”

Along with hundreds of local shelter partners, the Canadian Women’s Foundation, Women’s Shelters Canada, the Assaulted Women’s Helpline, TD Bank, Sagen and other critically important organizations, The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is working to make home a safer place for everyone.

Royal LePage offices across Canada partner with local women’s shelters to provide financial and in-kind support through local fundraising events and commission donations. All funds raised by brokerage offices remain within the communities in which they serve.
