When it comes to the Intero Foundation events, you can always count on Intero Agents to jump in and participate however they can. Whether promoting our most recent e-waste recycling opportunity to the community or volunteering for a shift during recycling hours, this kind of teamwork is what helped us collect over 8,500 pounds of electronic waste on March 16th in front of the Intero Saratoga office. Intero teamed up with Earthcare Recycling of San Jose to help people in the community properly dispose of old printers, TV’s, monitors, computers, etc….all while helping to raise $430 for the Intero Foundation. Many Intero offices, including the Los Altos and Willow Glen offices, have also held e-waste recycling events over the past few years, with the proceeds being donated directly to the Intero Foundation. Way to go Team Intero!
I am a proud supporter of the Intero Foundation. One of the most impressive things about our organization for me is that we do not support just one particular cause or organization, but, rather, we are able to provide the resources to help many local charities in need. Through every real estate transaction an Intero agent is involved in, we have the option to donate a portion of our commission to the Foundation upon the close of the transaction. Additionally, our agents offer their time to help make a difference in the communities we live and work in by volunteering for various fundraising events. Each grant that the Foundation receives from local charities is carefully reviewed to ensure money and other resources reach the causes most vital to the children in need in our communities. Given the financial hardships we are facing as a nation, nonprofit organizations are in even greater need of support from outside sources. At the Intero Foundation, we are committed to aiding these organizations, ensuring their vital and important work is not hindered. Nisha Sharma, Foundation Member

Alum Rock Counseling Center received a grant from The Intero Foundation in the past…. so that means The Intero Foundation had a hand in a young person getting on the right path.... the path to a better life, to college, to a career. She is now getting good grades because of the direction this Counseling group has set her on.
We, at Intero Foundation, have raised $200,000 this year… a year that has been a challenge for the real estate industry. Those contributions have helped 20 non-profit organizations help children in our community.
2010 has been a great year for the Intero Foundation... A great year of giving.
Thank you Intero Real Estate Agents for your generosity.
Thank you Intero Foundation!
Summer Search Silicon Valley is a recipient of an Intero Foundation grant. The program provides deserving young people with intensive mentoring, life-changing summer experiences, college access resources, and professional development services that empower them to change their lives and communities. Summer Search Silicon Valley provides mentoring to 82 low-income juniors and seniors who recently returned from summer experiential education programs. Post-trip mentoring provides holistic support and helps students build on the life skills and self-awareness they gained over the summer to excel academically and become community leaders. Intero Foundation is excited about the improvements the Summer Search program is making in the lives of young children.
The 7th Annual Intero Foundation Golf Tournament, which took place at Cinnabar Hills Golf Course on Thursday, July 29th was a huge success, thanks to the team work of our real estate agents and leadership at Intero Real Estate Services. A fabulous time was had by all when over 190 golfers and several volunteers and sponsors showed up for this fun day in the sun to benefit the Intero Foundation! The Intero Foundation, founded in 2002, continues to impact the growth and well being of children and youth in the communities we serve, by providing grants to organizations. Year to date, we've already given close to $1.7 million to non-profit organizations throughout the Bay Area - thanks to the real estate agents and events like the Intero Foundation Golf Tournament.
With a lunch provided by Old Republic Home Warranty and other generous sponsors such as Bank of America cheering on the golfers as they were teeing off, this was one of the best golf tournaments Intero has put on! Nearly $4,000 was raised in raffle tickets alone!
Gino Belfari, President and CEO of Intero Real Estate Services, added to the excitement, by riding around in a decorated golf cart and mingling with the golfers, sponsors and spectators. Many other supporters joined in for a dinner, auction and music afterwards providing a perfect end to a perfect day.
A big thank you to our sponsors:
