KW Cares exists solely to support our KW Family in times of need. Your donations are vital to this mission, but so are your efforts to help spread the good word. Below, you’ll find several important resources to further raise awareness in your Market Center about our mission to help our KW Family members when they need it most.
One of the simplest ways your associates can support KW Cares is by giving with every transaction. While the process has changed slightly, the convenience and the impact have not. Here’s a step-by-step guide to giving to KW Cares with every transaction, via Command and Greensheets.
We’ve created Generous Hearts Packages designed to hang in a prominent place in your Market Center. This is a wonderful way to remind KW associates to donate and to recognize their contributions. Simply download and print the graphics via the below link.
KW Cares’ stories of impact, social posts, and newsletters are all here in one place. Please feel free to access any of these materials to share digitally, by email, social media, and elsewhere, or in print. For our most up-to-date stories, find us on: Facebook, Instagram and Our Blog – and please, share!

Generous Hearts Club
Your generous hearts keep the KW Cares mission alive and our KW family members supported when they need it most. By giving to KW Cares, you join the Generous Hearts Club. We are profoundly grateful to each of our donors for their impactful contributions.
Show you care! Add the Generous Hearts Club to your e-sig, business card or website.
Our goal is to distribute as many grants as possible each year to help our KW Family. To achieve this, we need your help in promoting our grants program and when it is an option for our associates.
Not only are KW Cares grants for natural disaster relief, but the vast majority of our grants are awarded for sudden emergencies like illness, death, and accidents. Please download or print out our Agent Onboarding One-Sheet and share it with your associates, both new and existing via email or in-person.
Associates of Keller Williams Realty and employees of KWRI and their immediate family members qualify for KW Cares Grants. This includes:
At KW, we’re one family, and family members take care of one another. As an associate, you and your immediate family are eligible to apply for grants from KW Cares when facing financial hardship due to a sudden emergency, such as accidents, house fires, medical emergencies, and unaffordable funeral and burial expenses, and natural disaster relief.
Please download and share our KW Cares grants factsheets. Let’s assure our fellow associates that they are not alone when hardship strikes.
Inspired by the KW Bel Air Market Center, we’ve created complimentary Generous Heart Packages designed to hang in a prominent place in your Market Center. This is a wonderful way to remind KW associates to donate and to recognize their contributions.

What is Tithing, and Why Do We Do it?
In the KW ethos, Market Centers are strongly encouraged to raise $50,000 annually for charitable giving with a minimum of $5,000 earmarked as a tithe to KW Cares. The remaining $45,000 could be used for charitable giving in the local community and/or to help individuals in need in the Market Center.
Tips for how to successfully fundraise and tithe to KW Cares:
How Shannon Aronson Used Zoom to Fundraise:
How Preston Murphy Used Facebook to Fundraise:
In the midst of back-to-back hurricanes in the Gulf Coast, Preston Murphy, CEO & Team Leader, KW Realty Gulf Coast, took to Facebook, posting an image calling for donations to KW Cares. Those who wish to give posted the amount and their emails, and Preston collected donations.
Throughout the year, KW Cares hosts fundraising events that invite our family to make contributions. We host three scheduled fundraisers each calendar year, consisting of in-person events and online activities: Family Reunion (February), KW Cares Day (September), and an End of Year Giving Campaign. These fundraisers are a chance for us to work as a family to raise money that goes towards supporting our KW associates.
Coming Soon! How can I participate?
Participation is easy! When our fundraiser goes live, we will email all Market Centers, as well as announce on our website and social channels, with the link to the fundraiser.
