About Long Realty Cares Foundation
Long Realty Cares Foundation was established in 2002 to expand the philanthropic activities of the Long Realty Companies and to provide a venue for our sales associates and employees to collectively enhance the quality of life in Arizona. As our company evolves, it is distinguishing itself by building a legacy of philanthropy. To date, more than $1.5 million dollars in support have been donated to over 160 non-profit organizations in the communities in which we live and work, including Tucson, Green Valley, Sierra Vista and Marana. Foundation monies come from the many sales associates who voluntarily donate a portion of their commission from each real estate transaction and from Long Realty Companies employees who personally contribute to the Foundation. Many of our sales associates and employees go even further in their efforts to effect positive change; they make a commitment to serve local charitable organizations in a volunteer capacity. 520.918-3757. www.longrealtycares.com
