The Affiliated Foundation
CENTURY 21 Affiliated is proud to announce the creation of Affiliated Foundation, Inc. The Affiliated Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity which was created to encourage our generous CENTURY 21 Affiliated agents, partners and families to give back to our local communities in a meaningful and coordinated manner. In addition to the many long-running fundraisers held by local CENTURY 21 Affiliated offices, the Foundation will organize one large-scale (and crazy exciting!) event each year to raise some serious cash. Funds raised will be distributed to Easter Seals and other charitable causes important to the members of our Affiliated Family.

The mission of the Affiliated Foundation is to encourage Century 21 Affiliated agents, partners and families to give back to our local communities and local Easter Seals* chapters in a meaningful and coordinated manner.
*Easter Seals is a non-profit, community-based charitable organization dedicated to increasing the independence of children and adults with disabilities. Serving more than one million people annually through a nationwide network of facilities and services.
In 2016, the CENTURY 21® System raised $2.9 million for the second consecutive year for Easter Seals, its philanthropic partner. This brings the total contributions to Easter Seals by CENTURY 21 independent franchisees and affiliated sales professionals to over $114 million since the partnership began in 1979.
“The generosity and commitment of the CENTURY 21 System to the individuals and families touched every day by the Easter Seals organization mirrors the professionalism and highest level of quality service our brand ambassadors deliver to home buyers and sellers in local markets throughout North America,” said Rick Davidson, past president and chief executive officer of Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “What makes me most proud is knowing that the brand’s value proposition is backed by actions like these that provide support to communities and to people so they too can realize their full potential.”
“Easter Seals’ partnership with the CENTURY 21 System is as strong as ever thanks to the company’s focus on making philanthropy an integral part of their business model,” said Randy Rutta, president and chief executive officer of Easter Seals. “This extraordinary company is not only about making homeowner dreams come true, but is equally committed to serving people living with disabilities in communities where they live and work. The funds raised by CENTURY 21 help Easter Seals make a profound and meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of families touched by disability every day.”
