Our mission is to provide affordable housing organizations and nonprofits with real estate expertise, funding, and preservation.
Founded in 2015, Sharing Connexion began with a concept to use proven real estate industry skills and resources to empower and support the nonprofit industry in Colorado. The founder and board president, Ed Anderson, established and remains the Chief Executive Officer for a for-profit real estate investment firm, Connexion Asset Group (CAG). Throughout its history, CAG has been involved in over $1 billion of real estate transactions. Upon identifying other real estate professionals with extensive experience and complimentary desire to give back with their expertise and skills, the board of directors and advisory board were formed. The board focused on identifying and assisting with real estate solutions for charitable organizations, and especially affordable housing organizations. Therefore, Sharing Connexion exists to provide real estate resources, solutions and support to nonprofits and affordable housing organizations. In 2016, we made our first real estate impact investment. In 2018, we launched our first partnership projects under the Real Estate Donation program and the Real Estate Rescue program. Since its founding, the organization was volunteer run, but in early 2019, we hired our first staff and launched new communications outlining our programs. Sharing Connexion is now in scaling mode and aims to replicate our programs throughout the community.
"A few years ago, our organization was facing a serious real estate challenge because of the I-70 expansion project. How fortunate it was for us to be referred to Sharing Connexion. They quickly became a key advisor in coaching us through the financial aspects of a nonprofit building purchase. I especially appreciated their creative solutions to financing problems that can sometimes be daunting to community organizations. Sharing Connexion's advice and investment made it possible for us to purchase our building and continue our mission of employing individuals rebuilding lives. We are so thankful for their help!" - James Reiner, Bud's Warehouse
"The thought of losing this property was devastating for us because it took years to find this home, and it works perfectly for our program. When we met with Sharing Connexion, we immediately realized that we were working with people who actually cared about how this would negatively impact the girls we work with and knew this was a perfect solution for us... We believe that every girl deserves a childhood and a safe place to live, and without Sharing Connexion stepping in to help us, we would not be able to provide our crucial services. We are incredibly thankful." - Kristen Harness, Extended Hands of Hope
