Agents Who Give Back: Rachel Farmer
Rachel Farmer has been our long-time resident philanthropist at Beacham & Company. Through Rachel's leadership, Beacham & Company has contributed nearly $50,000 over the past 6 years to Our House, an organization that offers programs for children and families experiencing homelessness. Our House provides safe housing, resources, education and support to help break the cycle of poverty.
Rachel's fundraising efforts have outfitted the Genesis Shelter’s classrooms (who merged with Our House in 2014) and sponsored Christmas gift-giving for families. She has also worked with other Beacham agents to raise funds to redesign the entire common area. Thanks to the collaboration of interior designer Laura Green and local artist Melissa Payne Baker, who donated several paintings, the common area has become an inviting space to host meetings and a fun place to gather. We are proud that this has become an annual, growing tradition among our agents.
Most recently, Rachel has spear-headed a new charity initiative, BGB (Beacham Gives Back), by rallying for both agents and staff to donate additional funds from each closing or paycheck to a charity of the agents’ choosing quarterly. So far she has inspired 100% support from the company's staff with our first donation supporting the non-profit organization Students Without Mothers, who provide scholarships for college bound high school seniors who are without their mothers due to death or other unfortunate circumstances.
From baking holiday pecan pies for the mailman to handing out warm blankets at the local YMCA, we are lucky to work with such a generous agent who gives back to the community.
