(TUCSON, AZ.) Long Realty Cares Foundation has committed to support Tucson’s Primavera Foundation with a monthly donation throughout the remainder of 2010.
Founded in 1982, the Primavera Foundation is dedicated to addressing poverty and homelessness in Pima County by building a future in which all people are assured basic human rights, a livable income, and safe, affordable housing.
“Long Realty Cares Foundation is proud to support Primavera’s exceptional programs throughout 2010,” said Susan Barry, Long Realty Cares Foundation President. “Primavera’s mission to provide affordable housing and reduce homelessness and poverty in Southern Arizona is a great fit for our contribution dollars since both Long Realty Cares Foundation and Primavera share a similar overall objective: to enhance the quality of life in our community.”
The monthly contribution from Long Realty Cares Foundation will help fund the organization’s largest fundraising event, “Primavera Cooks!” – a summer series partnership in which donors act as Apprentice Chefs and Sommeliers at several of Tucson’s finest locally-owned restaurants.
Primavera will also use contribution dollars to provide several informative classes to the public, including home ownership programs, home buyer education classes, credit counseling, job readiness and placement services, financial education seminars and neighborhood revitalization planning.

About Long Realty Cares Foundation
Long Realty Cares Foundation was established in 2002 to provide a venue for Long Realty sales associates and employees to collectively enhance the quality of life in Arizona. As the Foundation evolves, it is distinguishing itself by building a legacy of philanthropy. To date, more than 1.6 million dollars in support have been donated to nearly 170 different non-profit organizations in the communities in which we live and work. Foundation monies come from the many Long Realty sales associates who voluntarily donate a portion of their commission from each real estate transaction and from Long Companies employees who personally contribute to the Foundation. Many Long Realty sales associates and employees go even further in their efforts to effect positive change; they make a commitment to serve local charitable organizations in a volunteer capacity.
