EXIT Realty Corp. International Spirit of EXIT

EXIT Realty, More Than Just A Real Estate Company

The philanthropic efforts of EXIT Associates across the U.S. and Canada are
amplified by the Spirit of EXIT Charitable Program. National charities as well as
local non-profits benefit from the support of real estate professionals who live and
work in the communities they serve.

A portion of every transaction fee received by EXIT Realty Corp. International is
applied to its charitable fund. Through the Spirit of EXIT Dollar-for-Dollar
Charitable Program, EXIT Associates can raise money for local, approved,
registered charities and apply to have those funds matched from the company’s pool
of funds. To-date, EXIT has allocated more than $7 million to charity.

“Part of the application process involves explaining why a particular charity was
chosen and some of the stories are very personal,” explains Susan Harrison, Senior
Vice President with EXIT Realty who oversees the program. “We have agents whose
children face life threatening illnesses who want to raise money for medical
research. We have agents who tell us that at one point in their lives they were foodinsecure,
and a particular food bank was the reason they ate. Other agents deeply relate to the needs of veterans and others still to animal welfare. One of the things I love best about our program is that everyone relates to a different need that tugs at their heart, and it might be different than another agent in their office or an office across the country. Our program supports what our people care about at their core.”

EXIT saw a 24.6% increase in the number of initiatives in 2022 over 2021. In 2022,
over half the Spirit of EXIT initiatives supported non-profits working to benefit
children and communities. Examples of the non-profits in each of the categories

Animals 4.7% – Sale Ranch Animal Sanctuary
Cancer 5.8% – Pink Cans 4 Cancer
Children 28% – Children’s Advocacy Center of Van Zandt County
Community Support 25.5% – Haven House homeless shelter
Habitat 8.1% – Habitat for Humanity. EXIT’s history with Habitat for Humanity
dates back to 2004. Habitat for Humanity is categorized separately because of the
number of Spirit of EXIT applications received benefiting the non-profit.
Medical Research 5.8% – United MSD Foundation
Medical Support 16.3% – Carlton Place & District Memorial Hospital Foundation

“The last two sentences of EXIT’s mission statement are, ‘EXIT empowers people to live their why. Real estate is our how,’” says Susan. “This is their why.”
