Commission for Kids is a unique niche real estate marketing company helping its members to generate leads and referrals while giving back to their local community. Commission for Kids is building a nation-wide membership community of licensed real estate agents, mortgage brokers, attorneys, title companies, appraisers, insurance agents and inspection companies through its marketing program, who make a commitment to donate a portion of their commissions and fees back to their local K-12 schools and 501c3 youth organizations (on those transactions initiated by the agent’s branding and marketing efforts as a Commission For Kids member). This is done through the sale or purchase of their client’s home. The client can designate which school or non-profit youth organization will receive the funds. A check can be written in the name of the recipient once the closing is completed. The check is then given to the designated school or non-profit youth organization by the real estate agent.

The Commission for Kids program represents a new way for K-12 Schools and 501C3 Non-profit youth organizations to receive donations to fund academic, non- profit youth and sports programs. We can assist you with communicating this opportunity to your school or non-profit youth organization’s network of families and supporters. Just think, if you are a parent, family member or a staff member, and you have the chance to choose a real estate agent that commits to giving back 5% of their gross commission to your school or non-profit youth organization, you would want to do that. We invite you to reach out to us to learn more, email hello@commissionforkids.com or call 772-888-KIDS.

As a result of his work with a local booster club on behalf of his own son, he was moved to create a solution that addresses the need for schools, their athletic programs and non-profit youth programs to raise funds. An idea came to mind that he could donate a portion of his real estate sale commission to his son’s basketball team for needed expenses. This led Farabaugh to found Commission for Kids as a way for real estate professionals to give back to their local communities in a positive and charitable way. He realized he could help more children by expanding Commission for Kids on a larger scale across the U.S.A. as a marketing platform for real estate agents to have a unique niche helping their communities and families.
