What We Do

KW Cares is the heart of the Keller Williams culture in action, finding and serving the higher purposes of business through charitable giving in the market centers and communities where KW associates live and work.

What Is KW Cares?

Designated a 501(c)(3) public charity in 2003, KW Cares raises money through Keller Williams market centers and regional offices in order to provide emergency financial assistance to members of the KW family in need through its grants program, and to support other board-designated charities and causes aligned with the mission and values of Keller Williams Realty and KW Cares.

What Is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity?

Identified by the IRS, a 501(c)(3) is an organization that has been federally authorized to receive tax-deductible donations. A 501(c)(3) accepts donations and offers deductions on donations as allowed by law.

History of KW Cares

KW Cares was the brainchild of Keller Williams agents who had a dream to reach out and support fellow KW associates facing financial hardship due to major emergencies. Mo Anderson, vice chairman of Keller Williams Realty, took this dream and brought it to fruition as a 501(c)(3) public charity in 2003. Today, KW Cares is supported by associates from across North America.
