Organizations We Love – Vacation Homes for Charity


We love finding great companies and organizations to blog about.  And even better when the company or organization incorporates a great cause and the travel or vacation rental industry!  We just came across Vacation Homes for Charity, a great organization that partners vacation rental homeowners with charities in need.

From their Website:

In the fall of 2008, we at The Society opened up our platform to help charities source vacation homes for their auctions and other fund raising events. We tested this new service in the fall all parties including homeowners, property managers, real estate brokers, and charities were delighted.

We created to highlight upcoming events, success stories and news regarding this new service.  For 2009 we have some audacious goals: we are going to giveaway over 1000 nights to charities! It’s time to go big and the charities need our help.”

If you own a vacation home or know someone with a vacation home, you can CONTACT them or REGISTER today!

Before you donate your rental property, be sure that you’re up on the latest tax regulations in regards to what you can and can’t write off.  For information on the tax benefits, you can check out this ARTICLE.

  1. Thanks for highlighting VH4C. We should have some exciting news coming up in the next few months as it relates to more marketing exposure for vacation providers.

    We’ve had a tremendous response this year from home owners, property managers and resorts. They are all giving many weeks and the charities are loving it. We’ve just surpassed the $300,000 mark for monies raised through the program.

    Thanks again for spreading the word.

    Kind Regards,
