Real Estate Transactions

We’re excited to announce our partnership with Investing In Communities®. Thanks to this partnership, supporters like you can now generate funding for PAWS Chicago at no personal cost through real estate transactions!

Associated Publications generates $4,800 for PAWS Chicago

Founded in 2008, Investing In Communities is a nonprofit web platform that connects individuals and businesses with socially responsible real estate professionals.

Here’s how it works:

  • A nonprofit supporter needs real estate services.
  • The supporter uses to find a real estate professional or invites a professional to participate.
  • The supporter and professional agree that at least 10% of the professional’s commission from this transaction will be donated through IIC to the nonprofit of the supporter’s choice.
  • The deal closes, the nonprofit gets funding, and it doesn’t cost the supporter a dime!*

Investing In Communities’ debut distribution was in May 2010. As of July 2011, IIC has enabled nonprofit supporters to generate over $100,000 for 32 nonprofits at no personal cost.

By giving your business to a socially responsible real estate professional, you can support PAWS Chicago at no personal cost. To participate or for more information, please visit To speak with a PAWS representative about this program, please contact Kaitlin Allen at or at 773-843-2500 .
