The Smith & Associates Real Estate Foundation Establishes Giving Arm for the Company

TAMPA, Fla. (March 1, 2021) – Since its inception over fifty years ago, Smith & Associates Real Estate has been committed to its mission of positively impacting the community. With a distinguished reputation for being a good community citizen, the organization is excited to announce the launch of the Smith & Associates Real Estate Foundation. The organization presented an initial funding check to the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay in the amount of $100,000. The foundation is established through the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, which helps with administration and grant-making.

The Smith & Associates Real Estate Foundation enhances Smith’s community efforts further by formalizing its dedication to contributing to non-profits and creates a seamless approach for employee and organizational participation in philanthropic causes important to their giving objectives.

“Our success is measured not just by sales growth and volume but also in how we can contribute to making Tampa Bay, our home, a better place to live and grow. We regularly recognize our staff for their sales achievements and also for their philanthropic output, demonstrating the value we place on a holistic approach to doing business. The establishment of the Smith & Associates Real Estate Foundation ensures that our legacy of giving continues,” says Bob Glaser, President & CEO, Smith & Associates Real Estate.

Through the foundation, a proportion of Smith’s profits will be given back to the community. Smith employees will have the ability to seek corporate matches and/or sponsorships and bring a greater level of involvement to causes and organizations that are meaningful to them. The check was presented to the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay to launch the foundation on the terrace of their Beach Drive office.
