Legacy Venture Giving creates a revenue stream for nonprofit organizations by generating income through real estate. To accomplish this, Legacy Venture Giving pairs ready buyers and sellers with qualified real estate agents.
Organizations and nonprofits are the most dynamic businesses out there. The staff works tirelessly with small budgets, multitasking programs and fundraising. This is completed by staff and volunteers donating time and money to keep the organization sustained.
As the Broker of LVG, I find this dynamic and these people amazing. While working full time as a real estate broker, developer and property manager, I found it important to find balance volunteering and taking on leadership opportunities with nonprofits. So much so that I received my MA in Arts Management. I developed the LVG Partner concept after moving out of the state in which I am a licensed broker and having had the opportunity to be a Development Associate for a statewide nonprofit. Running my own business as a fundraising arm for nonprofits is a win for all Partners:
- Buyers and Sellers get a qualified agent to assist them with their transaction
- Nonprofits and organizations receive exposure and funding for general operating expenses
- Agents receive notification of ready buyers and sellers in their area
Legacy Venture Giving receives a referral fee from the Agent & Broker Partners. Legacy Venture Giving is able to donate back 10-30% of these fees to the nonprofits the Buyer and Seller Partners select. Especially important in the development and planning of Legacy Venture Giving is knowing the challenge that nonprofits with a 501(c)3 status less than three years in length have getting grant funding.
Please consider using Legacy Venture Giving when you decide to buy or sell your next home or know someone who will be.
