1% for the 99% Initiative

Marks Realty Group has selected the below three non-profit organizations as our 2021 recipients of the 1% for the 99% Initiative

SF•Marin Food Bank
Bay Area WildCare
Planting Justice

At the Marks Realty Group, we are conscious of the fact (or we recognize) that the top 1% of the wealthiest people in our country have a disproportionate share of capital, political influence, and the means of living a life of privilege and comfort, education and health. As a result of this wealth inequality and in line with our ethos on beneficence, we developed our 1% for the 99% Initiative which annually gives 1% of our total commission in cash and in-kind donations to nonprofits committed to making a difference in their local communities, with particular attention paid to social justice and environmental issues.
