Real estate sales to benefit Chicago's LGBTQ community

Chicago, ILSeptember 8th, 2016

Cory Sanders and Fernando Schor, two Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty agents, have generously joined TPAN to develop a donation program to benefit Chicago’s LGBTQ Community. Individuals selling or buying real estate property through Sanders and Schor now have the option to designate a portion of the realtor’s commission as a donation to TPAN.   
Cory Sanders has been a licensed agent since 2000 and has been practicing in the Chicago market since 2007. Fernando Schor has been a Chicago resident for over 12 years. With vast knowledge of Chicago communities and neighborhoods, Cory and Fernando have represented clients in Lakeview, Andersonville, and surrounding neighborhoods, and their client work in these communities served as inspiration for their program.
Giving back to the communities in which they serve is important to Cory and Fernando, and essential to TPAN’s mission. The partnership with Jameson Sotheby’s strengthens the connections between members of Chicago’s communities and the non-profits serving those communities.
"We were thrilled to be approached by Cory and Fernando about taking part in this donation program," says Patti Capouch, TPAN’s CEO. "This is a creative way for business professionals to give back to the community by helping support programs that are underfunded. All of the services delivered at TPAN are free–including HIV and hepatitis C testing and counseling; substance abuse programming; mental health and psychosocial support; art therapy; case management; treatment education; and Positively Aware, our national treatment publication–so this money will serve to bolster the work we do with our clients, often underserved individuals living with or vulnerable to HIV. Innovative programs like this highlight the important connection between the business community and nonprofits and how they can come together to really make a difference."
"I firmly believe that as member of the community, it’s my responsibility to give back whenever possible. And this opportunity to bridge my profession with bringing community awareness for some amazing organizations is not only a positive thing to do; it’s the right thing to do. I know the financial and community awareness impact of this relationship will be very successful. I also believe when working with a community or neighborhood it’s a responsible practice for professionals and business to give back to its community," said Fernando.
