Kelleher Real Estate Services

Our Philanthropy

Kelleher Real Estate not only acknowledges our responsibility to our clients but also to our island community and our way of life here on Martha’s Vineyard. It is because of this commitment that we have made giving back to our community a key element of our business model. Our principal focus has been to assist children on the island who are dealing with unique challenges in their young lives to include ones of a financial, emotional and/or physical nature. This mission has expanded over the years to also include donations to a number of other charities both on and off island.

Camper Scholarships

There are  harsh realities some island children deal with including seasonal housing and unstable family lives caused by drugs, alcohol or domestic abuse.  It is these “at risk” children who need the full support of our island community. These are the children our business hopes to help by offering camper scholarships. Our scholarships are “child based” and center around the unique needs and wants of the child. We want to give them an opportunity to experience the island in the way generally reserved for only our privileged residents and visitors. Some of the activities the children have selected include gymnastics, art, sailing, theatre, horseback riding and a variety of sports.

College Scholarships

For our young adults, Kelleher Real Estate has awarded thousands of dollars in College Scholarships to graduating seniors who have demonstrated an on-going commitment to community service. It is our hope that by rewarding volunteerism at a young age we will be encouraging our young people to make this work an on-going part of their lives helping to build strong communities. It has been encouraging to see how many of our teenagers already incorporate this type of work into their busy lives.

Green Initiatives

As a GREEN certified broker our principal, Jean Kelleher, has joined in collaboration with Cape Light Compact to sponsor a booth at the yearly Tisbury Street Fair to distribute free tote bags, re-usable water bottles, LED lighting and offers of free energy audits for homeowners to help them understand how to make their homes for energy efficient to save on yearly utility bills.
