It has been said of our town, “If you’re lucky enough to live in Durango, you’re lucky enough”.  We at Durango Land and Homes truly believe that and because we’re so lucky, we feel it’s important to give back to the community that we’re so privileged to be a part of. Our spirit of community is spread in a couple different ways.

First, our brokers participate in the Durango Land and Homes Charitable Contributions Fund which we started as part of our “Integrity Gives” initiative.  With each closing commission earned, our brokers donate to the fund.  At our team meetings we review requests for donations and vote on recipients and amounts. In just over 4 short years, our brokers have donated more than $118,000 and over 13,000 hours of service to our community and we’re excited to challenge ourselves to keep that number on its northward trajectory!

Second, we volunteer our time.  Durango is a small community, but it’s one that gives from the heart.  Our town has numerous well-deserving 501(c)3 charitable organizations all of which need not only funds, but help in other ways as well.  We do that too.

Below is a list of organizations (in alphabetical order) to which we’ve given either our time, our financial assistance, or both.  Please take a moment to check them out.  Is your favorite organization listed?
