Because we believe in giving back to the community, we actively sponsor the following three initiatives:
A good education combats many social concerns; it can be key to obtaining and retaining quality jobs, to self-confidence, to self-reliance, a to good work ethic. Therefore, we participate in various fundraising efforts for local schools. In addition, many of our clients donate quality clothing, school supplies, and money to local schools.
All donations we receive are either delivered personally by us, or donated to reputable tour companies that visit schools on a regular basis (like Outback Safari).
Note: Please do not give cash directly to children, or others soliciting children. This money rarely benefits the children, and it promotes begging and undermines the value of education and honest work. An exception may be made if the child is offering a legitimate product or healthy service. Children in the tourist zone of Punta Cana are not hungry and most are well clothed, but many do lack education.
We collaborate with Rescatame, a locally owned non-profit organization whose aim is to help every animal that is without a home, or is sick or abused in the area of Bavaro / Punta Cana. In May of 2014, Rescatame collaborated with numerous volunteer veterinarians in the DR and around the world to treat over 1,500 dogs throughout the country. One of Rescatame’s goals is to collect enough funds to open a much needed refuge center in Punta Cana.
We pass our client’s donations of money, collars/ leashes, dog food, etc. directly to Rescatame.
Trash Clean Up and Recycling
We strive to empower our community to keep streets free of trash and to recycle. We have provided numerous signs over outdoor garbage cans to encourage trash clean up, and in 2012 the local municipality followed our example by providing numerous, permanent trashcans throughout the Bavaro/ Cortecito and Friusa areas.
Partner with Us!

Reliable Realty will match 50% of all cash donations (up to $100.00). Donations can be made via PayPal or, if you live in the DR, can be made through a direct bank deposit. If you are planning a visit, we can accept donations in cash or U.S. checks at our office. However you donate, a receipt will be provided. If you’d rather connect directly to an organization we partner with, we can help you do that also. Thanks for caring!
