About The HPW Foundation:
Don Walston, one of Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston’s founders, formed the HPW Foundation in the late 1990’s so that sales associates and employees could have a forum, through the company, for serving the communities in which they live. Since its inception, the HPW Foundation has given more than $688,000 to local, not-for-profit organizations to benefit countless individuals throughout the Triangle. Recipients include Habitat for Humanity, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, The Frankie Lemmon Foundation, Special Olympics North Carolina, The MeFine Foundation and Second Chance Pet Adoptions.
