Agents Giving ups top-up
More than £165,000 worth of fund-raising has so far been bolstered by the Agents Giving 10% top-up fund and this amount is now set to receive a further boost by the charity.
Estate agents up and down the country have been getting on their bikes, donning their football boots and polishing up their baking skills to raise a huge amount for charitable causes over the past year. 29 different charities have been supported through the 10% top-up provided by Agents Giving and these charities are now about to receive a further boost as Agents Giving plans to add £250 to the amount raised at each fundraising event. This is a result of the huge success of its own events which feed into the charity's central fund.
Agents Giving was launched as The Estate Agency Foundation (The EAF) in November 2007 and was rebranded in February 2014. Subject to conditions, Agents Giving will augment donation made by supporters to their local charities by 10%.
Peter Knight, chairman of Agents Giving said: Agents have done immensely well to raise this amount of money for charitable causes but we would like even more companies raising money in the sector to reach out to us for the 10% top-up, to the benefit of their selected charities. Agents Giving is now going to add an additional £250 to the fundraising of every company who made use of the top-up which provides even more encouragement to get involved.
