The Guild Supporting Agents Giving Grant Fund 15 Jul 2023
Iain McKenzie Explains
Why and how the guild are supporting Agents Giving
The Guild of Property Professionals helping to make a big difference
We are immensely grateful to the Guild of Property Professionals, whose generous contributions amplify the impact of our charitable endeavours. Boasting a robust network of around 800 independent estate agencies, the Guild’s support significantly bolsters the philanthropic capacity of the myriad charities we back. Annually, we are approached by a multitude of estate and letting agents, alongside property professionals throughout the UK, all seeking grants to propel their charity events forward. It brings us great joy to offer up to £300 to each agency, thus ensuring a greater proportion of funds raised can be channelled directly into their chosen causes. The assistance we render extends to hundreds of charities each year, and it fills us with immense pride to escalate our support through the invaluable donations from the Guild of Property Professionals.
If each agent makes one successful referral
Iain McKenzie, CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals, says: “If each agent from the entire network makes one successful referral a month that completes, it would equate to a potential sum of approximately £40,000 a month and around £480,000 in a year. That is a substantial amount of money that would be going to Agents Giving to be able to make a massive difference to a number of charities supported by the organisation.”
Agents Giving has helped many within the industry
McKenzie continues “Agents Giving is a fantastic platform that has helped many within the industry, along with their customers and suppliers, to realise their fundraising goals for existing charities nationwide. Agents are able to apply for grants from Agents Giving to help them put together charity events that will raise money for those in need. Through Agents Giving, many within the industry have been able to directly impact the lives of people in their communities who are struggling, especially with the economic situation having a huge effect on a lot of people’s financial situations.”
Our partnership with Agents Giving is a step in the right direction
The Guild of Property Professionals is eager to support the organisation and help those within the industry with the financial support they require to assist those in need and make people’s lives better.
“There is so much going on in the world at the moment, and many people are eager to get back to normal, but if we do go back to doing things exactly the way we did before the lockdown, perhaps the world would have missed the opportunity to change for the better. Our partnership with Agents Giving is a step in the right direction in changing for the better and making a difference. As a large network, we have the influence to be able to pioneer change and make the world a little bit brighter,” McKenzie concludes.
Agents Giving would like to say a heartfelt thank you
Agents Giving Chairman David Newnes comments;
“We would like to say a tremendous, heartfelt thank you to The Guild and their members for this wonderful show of support to Agents Giving the Industry Charity. Your donations mean we can continue to help support the industry’s fundraising efforts through the Agents Giving Grand fund ensuring more of the money raised goes directly to even more UK charities on a national, regional, local, and community level, which is so important during these current times. We look forward to seeing the partnership flourish.”
