About Long Realty Cares Foundation
Long Realty Cares Foundation was established in 2002 to provide a venue for Long sales associates and employees to collectively enhance the quality of life in Arizona. As the Foundation evolves, it is distinguishing itself by building a legacy of philanthropy. To date, more than 1.6 million dollars in support have been donated to over 160 different non-profit organizations in the communities in which we live and work. Foundation monies come from the many Long Realty sales associates who voluntarily donate a portion of their commission from each real estate transaction and from Long Companies employees who personally contribute to the Foundation. Many Long 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.
