Community Support

Sawgrass Real Estate Academy
Giving Back to the Community

A key component of our mission is to provide the real estate and business brokerage industries with the tools they need to grow their businesses, and in turn, build their communities and the economy.  As a company, we work closely in the communities we serve, and strive to model our mission by using our business as a means to bring about greater good.

Below are some examples of how we do this:


We are an affiliate member of local REALTOR® boards, including Greater Tampa REALTORS® and the Pinellas REALTOR® Association.  We are also a member of the Christian Chamber of Commerce of Tampa Bay.


We proudly sponsor events for charitable organizations, especially organizations focused on economic empowerment and self-sufficiency.

Charity Support

We provide support to the following charities:

  • Headquartered in the Orlando Area, Creating Jobs, Inc., mentors and trains entrepreneurs in Central Florida, Haiti, Honduras and Mexico, with the goal to build up small and medium-sized businesses to create jobs, reduce unemployment, and transform communities from within.
  • Metropolitan Ministries offers a variety of programs to serve the needs of homeless and impoverished families in the Tampa Bay Area (including Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, and Polk counties). The organization provides shelter, food, job and life skill training, transitional housing, education and childcare, with an ultimate goal to lead clients to self-sufficiency.

Social Investing

We invest our reserves in value-based funds, that in turn invest in companies that operate ethically and sustainably.

Non-profit Discounts

We provide non-profit organizations focused on economic empowerment with discounts on our instructional design services.  Email us if you are a non-profit leader who would like more information on how we can collaborate
