RE/MAX Ultimate Professionals Gives Back!
Giving back is a priority in the RE/MAX® culture. We are passionate about supporting the many organizations and nonprofits working hard to make our world a better place. All across the globe, the RE/MAX network is actively making a difference in their local communities by volunteering, donating money and ultimately, changing lives. Get to know some of the causes we support and consider standing with us as we give back to the community.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®
Since 1992, RE/MAX agents have helped Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® support millions of kids each year who are treated at member hospitals throughout North America. Our donations stay local, which means RE/MAX agents who participate in the Miracle Home Program are helping kids in their own neighborhoods receive the best care possible.
Donations to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® go toward a variety of vital categories within the hospitals, which include:
Charitable Care: Donations help support the cost of patient care, including medical bills, travel assistance, home expenses, medical equipment, specialized continued care and patient needs.
Education: Donations fund education to support patients, families and the community. This includes services like continuing the patient’s education while they’re out of school for treatment and education for the hospital staff and community on preventative care, safety, trauma and more.
Patient Services: Donations help provide services such as child life, art therapy, music therapy, pet therapy, outdoor gardens and playgrounds, playrooms, comfort tools, pastoral care, counseling, case management, and continued care.
Advancement Services: Donations advance the physical and programmatic excellence to continue to deliver the best possible services for the best possible patient outcomes in the future. This includes expansion projects, capital projects, and the creation of innovative programs and services.
Equipment: Donations help purchase and maintain medically-necessary equipment (such as incubators, CT scanners, etc.) and transport equipment (such as helicopters, ambulances, etc.).
Research: Donations seed funding necessary to continue innovative, transformational research. This includes creating medical advances, finding cures and engaging in clinical trials.
