Who We Are

Mission Statement

Coldwell Banker Realty, the leading real estate company in the Midwest, proudly established the Coldwell Banker Realty Cares Foundation in 2007. Our primary purpose is to support local housing-related charities that directly benefit the needs of the people and communities we are privileged to serve.

Coldwell Banker Realty Cares Foundation is a local chapter of the NRT Foundation, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization operating as the charitable arm of Coldwell Banker Realty.


The Coldwell Banker leadership team, affiliated agents and staff throughout the region contribute their time, talents and resources to the charitable foundation. From organizing amazing charitable events, to volunteering, to collecting much needed items, the team’s commitment and devotion to making a difference in the community is phenomenal.

Advisory Committee

The Coldwell Banker Realty Cares Foundation is led by Ayoub Rabah, president, Central West region, Coldwell Banker Realty. It’s also supported by an advisory committee which helps further the foundation’s commitment to housing-related causes and giving back to our communities.
