The Gift of Giving

Most members of our community are touched everyday by a nonprofit organization in some way. Nonprofits build vibrant, sustainable communities, promote health and safety, celebrate and support the arts, and help protect our planet for future generations.

This holiday season there are many ways to show your support to the organizations that make our communities strong, whether you choose to contribute financially, or by volunteering.

The following are local organizations that Coldwell Banker Carlson Real Estate and/or our agents have been involved with or, there is always the charity of your choice.
