KW Cares grants provide a degree of assistance for Keller Williams associates and their families experiencing hardship as a result of a sudden emergency. Hardship is defined as a difficult circumstance that a person or family cannot handle without outside help.
How can we help
If you are a KW associate in need of financial assistance for immediate needs (shelter, food, transportation) due to a natural disaster, please know we are prepared to help.
NOTE: Please contact 911 for time-sensitive emergencies, your market center leadership to check in and KW Cares for financial assistance. Reach KW Cares during business hours at 512-327-3070 or email@example.com. On weekends or after hours, call the Disaster Hotline at 866-591-2737.
how to apply for a KW Cares Grant
With your team leader, determine if your request meets the eligibility requirements and criteria of hardship due to a sudden emergency.
Complete and fully document the KW Cares Grant Application.
Write a cover letter (written by the team leader or applicant) specifying the following:
- Summarize the associate’s emergency and financial situation
- Indicate the amount of the need
- Indicate the amount being requested
- Indicate what the market center has done to provide assistance to the applicant*
- Detail the market center’s plans for continued assistance, if needed*
*The KW Cares Board of Directors looks closely at the level of involvement and direct support that the intended recipient has received from the local market center. The expectation is that the market center community will provide 20 percent of the applicant’s need. This is not to say that grants won’t be made to individuals unless their market center has also contributed. However, the market center and/or region will be asked to explain if no support has been given.
Once approved at the market center level, forward the completed grant application form and documentation to the regional director for signature.
The region will forward the grant application with all required signatures, cover letter and supporting documentation to KW Cares at 435-514-2229 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
The KW Cares staff will review the grant and prepare a summary to present to the KW Cares Board of Directors for approval. Please allow up to 30 days following receipt of all required documentation for a response.
