GREENLIGHT FOR GOOD
Fighting childhood poverty and homelessness by providing grants and resources to those in need.
With an initial focus on childhood poverty and homelessness, we’ll deliver a portion of the commission from each Greenlight Properties sale which will go out as a grant to those in need and/or a donation to other local charities with similar missions.
Greenlight For Good, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, is now proudly accepting your tax deductible donations!
