Charitable Donations Program
Royal LePage Landmart is happy to announce that we will be continuing with our charitable donations program. Started in January of 2005 by Landmart Realty Ltd., as of January 2008 Royal LePage Landmart will carry on with the program. Put simply, each agent will donate $10.00 per completed sale to a charity which will be chosen by the staff. This donation of $10.00 will be matched by Royal LePage Landmart. for a total of $20.00 per completed sale.
Each quarter the staff will choose a charity. $20.00 for each completed sale in that quarter will be held at Royal LePage Landmart and a cheque for the entire amount will be given to the charity at the end of the quarter. Quarters consist of 3 months periods. For this program the quarters will be: January, February and March - first quarter; April, May and June - second quarter; July, August and September - third quarter; and October, November and December - fourth quarter. The total amount of the donation will vary according to the number of completed sales within the quarter.
As of July 1, 2009 the amount of time to collect for each charity was changed to each HALF of each year (January 1 to June 30 is the first half and July 1 to December 31 is the second half). We felt that we would then be able to give the charities larger amounts and the amounts would be more equal allowing for slower times in late fall and winter.
For the purposes of clearing up any misconceptions, a completed sale is defined as one in which Royal LePage Landmart has received payment of commission. Sales that are initiated in one quarter but not paid until another quarter will be counted in the quarter in which payment is received. Also, this does not apply to commissions received for referred properties where a portion of the commission is either paid to Royal LePage Landmart for referring clients to another company, or Royal LePage Landmart had to pay another company a portion of the commission as they had referred the clients to us.
If the property was listed by Royal LePage Landmart and sold by another company, the listing agent will donate $10.00 and Royal LePage Landmart will donate $10.00. If the property was listed by another company and sold by a Royal LePage Landmart agent, the selling agent will donate $10.00 and Royal LePage Landmart will donate $10.00. If the property was both listed and sold through Royal LePage Landmart, then the charity will receive $10.00 from the listing agent, $10.00 from the selling agent and $20.00 from Royal LePage Landmart.
This program is open to REGISTERED CHARITIES only. The charity must be able to issue official tax receipts for the monies paid. At the end of the quarter the charity will receive a cheque for the total amount of the donation and a spreadsheet showing the amounts donated by each agent and by Royal LePage Landmart Receipts must be made out to Royal LePage Landmart and to each agent in the amounts shown on the spreadsheet.
To become part of our program, charities must submit a letter to Royal LePage Landmart explaining what their charity is about and have a contact name and phone number. The staff of Royal LePage Landmart will select a charity for each quarter and that charity will be contacted. The charity must allow Royal LePage Landmart to use the name of their charity in our advertising.
