The Royal Lepage Story
From it’s humble beginnings in 1913 to present day, read all about the milestones that have defined Royal LePage.
Royal LePage Shelter Foundation
25 Years of Making Home a Safe Place for Everyone
Royal LePage professionals understand that a house is only a home if the people who live there feel safe. That’s why, 25 years ago, we unanimously agreed that helping women and children find safety from domestic abuse should be where we channeled our big hearts and charitable efforts. Since its founding in 1998, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has proudly grown to become the largest public foundation in Canada dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and domestic violence prevention. Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation.
The Shelter Foundation has raised $41 million to-date and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners. Our agents donate a portion of their commissions, and Royal LePage offices across Canada host local fundraising events. Our brokers, agents and staff also volunteer and provide in-kind goods to benefit the women and children residing in their local shelters. Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 50,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund.
