BC Children's Hospital Foundation
CMN Support of BCCHF
BC Children's Hospital Foundation (BCCHF) is one of 14 pediatric hospitals across Canada, who have partnered with Children's Miracle Network (CMN). CMN is a North American non-profit organization that raises funds for children's hospitals, medical research and community awareness of children's health issues. CMN was founded in 1983 in the USA, and supports hospitals across the USA and Canada.
RE/MAX Support of BCCHF
RE/MAX is one of the many national partners within CMN who support children's hospitals across Canada, and has cumulatively given over $60 million to these hospitals in the last 25 years. RE/MAX has been giving to BC Children's Hospital specifically since 1997, and over 1600 individual agents and 66 supporting offices have donated roughly $9 million dollars to date.
RE/MAX has been so successful in their fundraising due to the exlusive program calles the "Miracle Home Program" which provides an opportunity for a RE/MAX associate to make a donation to their local CMN hospital with each real estate transaction.
Many generous agents have been long-time supporters and donations are a direct result of the associates successes rather than solicitations to customers. Benefits of this program for agents include, building customer loyalty, gaining recognition among colleagues and in the marketplace, as well as giving back to the community where they work and live.
In 2016 RE/MAX agents and offices in BC raised a record-breaking $974,842 for BC Children's Hospital, and the goal for 2017 is to achieve $1,000,000 in fundraising dollars by the end of December.
