At Mel Foster Co., fulfilling communities' real estate dreams and visions goes beyond building and selling homes and buildings. We realize that the strongest communities are built by the contribution from concerned citizens and businesses working together to provide voluntary services and financial support. Our sales associates, staff and management team enthusiastically support the objectives of community service in the Quad Cities and all of the cities and towns that we work and live in.

Mel Foster Co. created a putt for charity fundraiser that donated all proceeds to a charity selected by agents and employees.  In 2011, Domestic Violence Shelter of Family Resources was the selected organization and received our $12,000 donation.  The charity selected in 2012 was Humility of Mary Housing Inc. and $15,000 was raised.  For 2013, a new charity fundraiser was created - Color the Quads, a 5K adult run/walk and a kids’ run that is different than any other local charity runs.  Color races allow runners and walkers to be blasted with a safe, washable colored cornstarch power, which adds to the fun and creates a wildly colorful racecourse and finish line. For the first year event, $50,000 was raised and $60,000 was raised in 2014.
