REACH Partnership (Realtors)
The Real Estate Agents Champion HSF (REACH) Program is an annual program for real estate agents in our local community who wish to ensure and maintain the high quality of our public schools and education programs.
By making donations to HSF, REACH Partners provide financial support for our public school programs. In return, our REACH Partners gain appreciation from as well as visibility with the Hillsborough community.
We ask our REACH Partners to pledge a donation of 5% of annual sale closing commissions (post broker split), with a minimum $7,500 annual donation up to a maximum cap of $15,000.
Merchants have successfully offered sales promotions targeting Hillsborough residents or tied to HSF Events. Companies interested in sharing their proceeds from sales to the Hillsborough community can partner with HSF to promote their sale.
We will also consider promoting your products on HSF's online shopping website, HSFShopping.com, which provides a commission to our foundation for purchases made via that site.
