Nominations are open for local nonprofits to be considered for a donation through Collins Group Realty’s second annual 200th Home Sale for Charity.

In 2020, more than 3,600 nominations were submitted for more than 100 local 501(c)(3) organizations. The real estate company donated $10,000 to two winning charities when it reached its 200th sale for the year.

Lovable Paws Rescue received the most votes and a check for $9,000 in August. A lottery drawing for a $1,000 donation, including all nominated charities, went to the Children’s Relief Fund.

“We were thrilled with the participation from the community in the 2020 giveaway and so honored to support and connect with such a vital charitable organization that we have decided to increase the number from two winners to five winners in 2021,” said Chip Collins, owner and broker-in-charge of Collins Group Realty.

The real estate group is requesting nominations for Hilton Head Island and Bluffton area 501(c)(3) charities, now through March 31, via its website,

On April 2, Collins Group Realty will announce on its Facebook page the 10 finalists with the greatest number of nominations. Those 10 finalists will move into a final voting round, which will take place April through July.

When CGR reaches its 200th sale, the Top 5 charities with the most votes will be announced and presented with cash donations totaling $10,000.
