Giving Back to Our Community

Kate and her Team actively participate in fundraising events and challenges to give back to the community and support the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and Halton Women's Place. To date, Kate and her Team have raised over $87,000 for Royal LePage Shelter Foundation!

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs. Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 30,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs they fund.

Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $38 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners.

Over the years Kate has donated generously to this cause, one that is very close to her heart. Whether it be through direct donations, attending and sponsoring fundraising events, participating in challenges or hosting her own fundraising events, she strives to give back to those in need and to the community that has supported her over the years.

This past week at the Royal LePage’s 2021 Chairman’s Club Event, I had the opportunity to organize a Silent Auction benefiting The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.
 

With it being a cause so close to my heart, it was a great honor to be able to continue raising money for them. I was able to get a guitar signed by Blue Rodeo, which was then auctioned off, with the winning bid being $8000. It was and continues to be amazing to raise funds for this wonderful foundation.
What an Adventure!
Now back from Marrakesh, Kate has accomplished yet another Royal LePage Shelter Foundation Challenge, this time trekking 100km across the Sahara desert in five days!.
 
 
November 2019 will never be forgotten as Kate pushed through new challenges while strengthening bonds & creating new friendships with fellow Royal LePagers, all for a great cause. The team'sfundraising efforts, which included the Shelter Rocks Oakville event in June, raised an astounding $22,548.00 for Royal LePage Shelter Foundation! Of this amount, $18,038.40 was brought back to her community at Halton Women's Place, while the remaining $4509.60 went to Royal LePage Shelter Foundation's national violence prevention programs, including youth education in partnership with schools across Canada.
 
 
All & all, Kate & her team have raised just under $80,000.00 for Royal LePage Shelter Foundation in just six years. They could not have done this without the support of friends, family, neighbors, local business owners, clients & colleagues who've contributed generously over the years and at each & every fundraising event.

We did this together!

Our sincere gratitude goes out to our friends, sponsors, volunteers & guests for their participation in our Shelter Rocks Oakville event at Less Than Level. It was a truly memorable evening & we couldn’t have asked for a better turnout or a more amazing & generous group of people to share it with.


Special thank you to Gold Cure Society for giving us an unbelievable performance & rocking out with us all night long. To our special guest, Michael Hanson – original founding member & drummer of Glass Tiger, we thank you immensely for taking the stage & singing your debut single "The Girl That Love Forgot” (available for download on iTunes).

Following Michael’s touching performance, he graciously helped us auction off an acoustic guitar signed by himself & lead singer of Glass Tiger, Alan Frew, who hand wrote the lyrics to “Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” on the guitar. The guitar went home with our guest & generous sponsor, Herb Braley Jr. of Braley Winton Financial Group for $2,100.00. Absolutely amazing!

 

We’re proud to announce that our combined efforts allowed us to raise $17,006.00 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation & Halton Women’s Place!

 

Our considerable donation will go a very long way in breaking the cycle of violence & restoring hope for families in various communities across Canada.


This was a very special night that wouldn’t have been the same without the support of everyone involved!

 

Sincerely,
Kate Vanderburgh & Team

Back from Iceland & thrilled to have made it home in one piece!

 

Thank you for your ongoing support, words of encouragement & generous donations that allowed us to exceed our fundraising goal & raise $16,249.46 for Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and Halton Women's Place.


This challenge was by far the most difficult, proving to be both physically & mentally exhausting. The longest day of trekking was over 13 hours across rugged terrain. We experienced steep uphill hikes, ice cold rivers, treacherous black sand storms, snow covered fields, strenuous rock climbing & covered 115 km over five days. Each day & night we were challenged to push on, all for a great cause & a bigger purpose.

 

This was truly a life changing experience & I couldn't have done it without your support.

 

Together with our Royal LePage family, over $650,000 was raised for women's shelters across Canada.

 

I'm also proud to announce that to date, the Kate Vanderburgh Team has raised over $57,000 for Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.

 

Thanks you again...until next time!
Kate

 

As I prepared for the journey to Machu Picchu months before departure, I was overjoyed from the overwhelming support of family & friends helping to make a difference in our community & the lives of others in need.

 

I'm finally back & could not believe the donations that kept pouring in, even after I left. Thanks to all of our loyal supporters, Kate Vanderburgh Team raised over $18,305.00 for Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and Halton Women's Place. I truly could not have done it without you!

 

Your sponsorship & words of encouragement helped me get through this amazing challenge and I managed to come back safely with some great stories to share...lol

 

Your support means everything!
Kate
