International Day of Charity 4 Sep 2023
To support the International Day of Charity on 5th September, your estate or letting agency can engage in various activities to contribute to a worthy cause. In addition, you can apply for an Agents Giving Grant to cover any costs so that the money you raise can all go to your chosen charity!
Here are some ideas to consider:
Charity Property Promotion: Encourage your estate agency clients to select a property or properties and donate a portion of the commission from the sale to a chosen charity. Create engaging social media posts highlighting the initiative, using relevant hashtags like #CharityProperty and #EstateForACause.
Virtual Property Tours: Organise virtual property tours and charge a small participation fee, with all proceeds going to charity. Promote these tours on social media with hashtags like #VirtualTourForGood and #EstateCharityTour.
Social Media Challenge: Create a social media challenge related to housing or interior design, where participants can share their creative ideas and donate to the chosen charity. Use hashtags such as #HomeForCharity and #HousingHope.
Donation Matching: Encourage your estate agency clients to match a percentage of their sales during a specific time frame and donate the amount to a charity. Share this initiative on social media using hashtags like #MatchingForGood and #GiveBackTogether.
Charity Auction: Organise an online auction where clients can bid on exclusive property-related items or experiences, with the proceeds going to charity. Promote the auction using hashtags like #HomesForACause and #EstateAuctionForCharity.
Share Success Stories: Highlight success stories of clients who have bought or sold properties through your agency and have chosen to donate a portion to charity. Use these stories in heartwarming social media posts with hashtags like #ClientKindness and #PropertyWithPurpose.
Collaborate with Local Businesses: Partner with local businesses to create a charity-focused event or initiative, such as a charity run or a weekend open house event. Use hashtags like #CommunityCharityEvent and #LocalSupport.
Interactive Polls and Quizzes: Engage your audience with polls or quizzes related to charity causes or housing preferences, and pledge to donate a certain amount for each participation. Share the results on social media using hashtags like #InteractiveForGood and #QuizForCharity.
The Agents Giving Grant Fund exists to help towards the setup costs of any fundraising events organised by estate agents or property professionals. Maximise your fundraising so more of the money you raise goes directly to your chosen charity. If you are raising money for any UK-registered charity, apply for a grant today.
