Help Ride Illinois Get Immediate and Ongoing Funding- At No Cost to You!
XYZ Law Firm, a long standing supporter of Ride Illinois, has generously stepped up with a challenge grant to encourage our members (you!) to sign up for reminders that your future residential and commercial real estate transactions can generate significant funding for Ride Illinois. There is no cost to you, and you can use virtually any broker you have in mind. Even if you aren’t planning to buy, sell, or lease in the near future, please sign up now to help us meet our sign-up goal for the challenge grant.
What? How? Why?
WHAT: IIC Challenge Grants are grants sponsored by companies to help nonprofits win modest funding grants in the short term while building a larger source of ongoing funding for the future.
HOW: IIC is a nonprofit real estate referral service that makes it easy for real estate consumers to sign up with any broker or agent; the broker pays a referral fee to IIC who then passes most of that fee to the nonprofit chosen by the consumer. A typical sale of a $300,000 home would net Ride Illinois about $1,300, if you remember to use this service before signing up with a broker. There’s no cost to you and you can use your broker of choice.
WHY: This is a free way for you to fund the work of Ride Illinois but your future real estate transaction may be months or years down the road. We think an occasional reminder is the best way to keep this on your radar. Even a handful of transactions each year would help ensure that we have the resources to keep fighting for better biking in Illinois.
