At Lyon Real Estate, our commitment to the communities we serve is at the heart of everything we do. Through the Lyon Cares Foundation and our office-level initiatives, we are dedicated to making a meaningful impact on the Greater Sacramento area.

June 12, 2024

As part of this commitment, each of Lyon’s offices contributes $10,000 annually in two $5,000 grants to worthy organizations throughout Greater Sacramento, totaling $145,000 company-wide each year. We are proud to share that more than 97% of Lyon agents and employees contribute to the Lyon Cares Foundation, reflecting our collective dedication to giving back.

Celebrating Our Mid-Year Contributions

Each office carefully considered and collectively voted on these organizations based on their impact on the specific communities we serve or their missions that have touched the lives of many we know.
