Gallo Gives Foundation

#GiveWhereYouLive

Established in 2016, The Gallo Gives Foundation is the charitable arm of our real estate company.  It is funded mainly by our agents and staff, who contribute a portion of their commission income at each closing. BHHS Gallo Realty then matches these funds 100% and the funds are distributed to worthy organizations at the end of each quarter. The organizations are chosen by committee members made up of agents and staff from all office locations.  The committee members change annually, so everyone in our company will have the opportunity to volunteer and serve within the foundation.

The foundation also offers two $2,500 scholarships each year to graduating high school seniors.  One scholarship is awarded to a student pursuing a 4-year degree in Business, and another to a student pursuing a 4-year degree in Environmental Studies.

The mission of the foundation is to support local charitable organizations in need, and to enhance the presence of the arts in Sussex County, Delaware.

To date, the foundation has contributed over $100,000 to local organizations.
