Additional Ways To Help

The ways that you can help be a part of this program are almost without limit. Take a look at what others are doing: 

 

Jewelry in Candles

4 Paws mom Sarah Mangan is selling candles with jewelry inside! 15% of each sale goes to 4 Paws. The jewelry in the candles ranges in value from ten dollars to several thousand dollars, and can range from silver and gold plated to item in solid sterling silver, yellow and/or white gold, and real diamonds, rubies, and other precious gems! The surprise is found when you burn the candle down.

They can be found at https://www.jewelryincandles.com/store/sarahmangan. Please order one (or more!), and let us know what you find inside!

4 Paws for Ability Joins Investing In Communities (IIC)

Individuals and businesses can now generate financial support for 4 Paws for Ability at no personal cost by making their real estate transactions IIC transactions! 4 Paws for Ability has become an Investing In Communities nonprofit Partner, and can now receive funds through IIC. IIC will enable supporters of 4 Paws for Ability to continue their philanthropy through difficult times, just by satisfying their existing real-estate needs.

The process is simple:

  • An IIC Friend (consumer of real estate services) approaches an IIC Broker Member with a real-estate need (friends may also ask their preferred broker to join IIC if he or she is not already a Member. It’s fast and easy!).
  • IIC Broker Members agree to pledge no less than 10% of their commission to the IIC Nonprofit Partner(s) the Friend selects.
  • IIC distributes funds generated by transactions to the selected Nonprofit Partners on a quarterly basis. Friends direct the philanthropy, but the cost is at the Broker Member’s expense

4 Paws for Ability believes IIC will benefit our organization, our supporters, and real estate professionals because IIC replaces a for-profit lead generation industry with a nonprofit platform that generates social value and real financial returns for participants. Though Broker Members fund IIC philanthropy, they receive positive publicity, excellent exposure, and increased visibility in return – all for a third of standard referral fees. In comparison to typical referral fees of 20-35% of a commission, the IIC pledge of 10% represents outstanding value for our real estate friends.

4 Paws for Ability encourages individuals, businesses, and real estate professionals to inquire about participating in Investing In Communities. Visit www.iiconline.org to learn more about IIC. Become a part of IIC, and help tell the world to GET GIVING?!
