Charitable Donations and Community Outreach
It is a core belief at Chan Group, that we should always share our good fortune. That is the essence of “Pay It Forward”. Thanks to great clients like you, Chan Group is able to “Pay It Forward” by donating a portion of every transaction we do to support several non-profit organizations & our local community.
KW Cares is a 501(c)(3) public charity created to support Keller Williams associates and their families with hardship as a result of a sudden emergency. Hardship is defined as a difficult circumstance that a person or family cannot handle without outside help. The charity is the heart of Keller Williams culture in action – finding and serving the higher purpose of business through charitable giving in the market centers and communities where Keller Williams associates live and work. A portion of every transaction goes towards KW Cares.
The Open Door has been a city-wide, front line ministry outreach of the Churches and community of Mississauga for close to 40 years. We minister to people of every walk of life, age, race, religion and culture. The staff and volunteers work to improve the life situation of people who are going through difficult times. We seek to companion people through their hardest times. Many can recover balance when connected to the appropriate resources they are often unaware of.
Financial support to PORTICO helps provide terrific care to individuals and families in Mississauga, Milton and Brampton. PORTICO is passionate about the fact that the world all around us needs to know the love of God, making our local, national and global missions efforts of the utmost importance.

Supporting Give Hope Every Day is one of the important ways that, together, we ‘Serve Christ’s mission in the world’.
Chan Group sponsors children through Emergency Relief and Development Overseas (ERDO), which is a Christian organization passionately responding to the practical needs of people living with poverty or crisis around the world by listening, caring and partnering. ChildCARE Plus is about rescuing one child at a time. It began with the vision to reach children living in desperate circumstances around the world and match them with sponsors who could provide for their basic needs, such as food, shelter, education and medical aid.
As part of our Pay It Forward program, the Chan Group has sponsored a free parking pass to any Trillium Health Partners hospital parking lot to lend it to anyone in need. We understand that unfortunate circumstances do occur and if this can help alleviate any extra burden or stress we would love to help!
