Promote your company while raising funds for your favorite charity through everyday real estate transactions – at no cost to you or your firm

How does it work?

IIC can empower your company to be charitable in a creative new way. IIC is a free broker-referral service for companies that want to lease office, retail, or industrial space, and for their employees who want to buy or sell a property.

Our Referral Platform

When a property is bought or sold, or commercial space is leased, a portion of the broker’s commission is often paid as a referral fee. By law, referral fees can be paid only to other brokers. IIC is licensed as a broker, so that it can legally receive these fees. Our mission as a nonprofit is to empower companies and their employees to choose a charity to receive the referral fees generated by these transactions.

The transparency of IIC’s funding distribution process enhances our credibility as well as yours. An association with IIC will help build recognition for your favorite charity. In exchange for referring an opportunity to the broker chosen by a company or an individual, IIC receives a fee. As a nonprofit social enterprise created expressly to fund charities through real estate transactions, IIC passes on at least 70% of the referral fee to a registered charity chosen by the company or individual.

FAQs

No money and only as much time and effort as you want. Once you join IIC, it’s up to you to share it as widely and often as you want. IIC will let you know whenever your company gets credit for a new transaction; then you can share the news and help your reputation improve even more.

IIC provides a new way to engage with your team and your community. Maybe there’s a charity you currently contribute money to and your employees could amplify that with their own transactions. Or if you have an upcoming real estate transaction, your employees can vote on which charity or charities to benefit.

More and more people want to do business and work for companies that want to make the world a better place. IIC gives you a tool to demonstrate that yours is that kind of company.

Odds are that employees at your company are buying and selling homes, and IIC enables your company to establish and grow your reputation as a socially conscious organization.
