WESTERLY, R.I., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Local real estate agent Geb Masterson and six local charities are pleased to announce the formation of a new funding program, Houses-4-Good®.  The alliance is designed to generate donations to these local charities through real estate sales.  Whenever Geb Masterson represents a Buyer or a Seller in a real estate transaction, a donation totaling 10% of Geb Masterson’s commission earned from that transaction is made to the charity of the client’s choice.

The innovative new partnership should prove to be very successful for the local community. «With the ‘average’ sales price in the Town of Westerly for the last 12-months coming in at slightly over $1-million, this partnership could significantly increase donations to these local charities», said Geb Masterson, «and I happy that my business model offers this without costing my clients a penny.»

Sheilia Beattie, Board of Directors President of the Westerly Land Trust said, «We sincerely appreciate Geb’s efforts and commitment to giving back to the local community with his unique business model and for making the Westerly Land Trust a part of this program.»

The six local charities that have agreed to participate are: the Westerly Land Trust, Stand Up For Animals, the Jonnycake Center of Westerly, the Chorus of Westerly, the WARM Center, and the East Beach Association.
