The Sasha Farmer Team is proud to support a local charity with every closing. Starting in 2015, we decided to make a donation on behalf of each closed client to a charity of their choice, and we continue to do so with each passing year.  In 2016 we surpassed our goal of $10,000 by giving $13,500. Our giving goal for 2017 is to exceed $15,000 given back to our local Charlottesville community, and we are so thankful for our amazing clients and the incredible opportunity to make Charlottesville a better place to live, work, and play.

Here are our 2017 charities – we’re excited to be supporting 5 charities that are near and dear to our hearts.

United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area

Our United Way has deep roots in our community, serving the needs of our local residents since 1943, when we were founded as the Charlottesville and Albemarle War and Community Fund by our local Chamber of Commerce.

Our vision is a strong, healthy and vibrant community that helps people rise above challenges to reach their full potential.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville was founded in 1991 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (click here to read HFHI’s mission statement). Over the past two decades, we have built homes in partnership with more than 150 local low-income families. We also currently manage the Southwood Mobile Home Park and own the local Habitat Store, which raises money for Habitat homes by selling building products and other donated materials.

These five core programs engage young people in activities with adults, peers and family members that enable them to develop self-esteem and to reach their full potential.
