2023: To Our KW Family

When I think about our twentieth anniversary year, the first thing that comes to mind is how proud I am to be a part of this Keller Williams community. Our twentieth year of service to the KW Family was a huge success. None of our achievements would have
been possible without the support of our donors, Board of Directors, volunteers, and our dedicated staff. Their commitment to our mission inspires me each and every day.

Throughout all of 2023, KW Cares worked toward several achievements—including the
successful completion of our first board approved strategic plan! In addition, we were
able to provide life-altering grants to 45% more members of the KW Family this year
compared to last year. These grants went to folks who had been affected by unexpected tragedies that upturned their lives, such as a cancer diagnosis, car accident, or death of a loved one. And, for my team and me, there is nothing so moving as being able to call someone who’s in the midst of suffering to let them know their grant has been approved. Bringing a moment of relief to our Keller Williams families that are in pain and distress is what motivates our staff and board to push our mission forward to its highest level.

As we closed our second decade, we reflected on how incredibly grateful we are to all the individuals, Market Centers, and Regions that have championed our work throughout the years. Every dollar donated to KW Cares came from a Keller Williams agent or associate in support of our life-changing work. There is no other company in the world that takes care of its own the way we do at Keller Williams!

Thank you for ensuring KW Cares can continue to serve a community where family truly helps family. It is an honor to lead us into the next two decades — and beyond!

Warmly,
Alexia Rodriguez
