Pay it Forward


Bringing Clients and the Community Together 

A Charitable Giving Program from Jacqueline Properties

The Pay it Forward program from Jacqueline Properties allows clients to make a charitable giving choice that reflects their personal social concerns. The cornerstone of the Pay it Forward program, commits a percentage of Jacqueline Gerras commission from most real estate transaction to be donated in the clients name to his or her choice of a pre-qualified nonprofit organization. (see list below)

The purpose of Pay It Forward is Jacqueline's way of saying thank you to her clients for trusting her with the sale or purchase of their home. Another main reason is to encourage others to contribute to our community in the hope that they support and become involved with the organization they select for a donation - whether by donating additional funds or volunteering their time. The ultimate goal is to kindle a new found passion to help others, realizing that success is only determined by the lives we touch along the way.

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

The Pay it Forward concept derives from the movie of that name in which a boy attempts to change the world by performing acts of kindness, requesting only that they "Pay It Forward" by doing at least three kind acts for others.

In addition to the Pay It Forward Program, clients may elect instead to participate in the programs such as:

Neighbors in Need: A percentage of Jacquelines commission is donated to a family in the community who has been identified as needing temporary financial assistance to weather a crisis.

Jacquelines clients who participate in the Pay it Forward program have a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, including children, teenagers, families, the elderly, the homeless and animals.

"Never doubt that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed, 
it is the only thing that ever has."


"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

Nearly 35,000 people in Orange County are without homes3; And without hope.

In Orange County, the homeless are often invisible. We rarely see them as they live under bridges, in filthy motels, in battered cars, or in cold alleys-yet nearly 35,000 are barely scraping by right in our hometowns. And sadly, their hope is nearly vanished too. These homeless include over 9,000 innocent children in Orange County right now. In fact, families with children represent 70% of the homeless here. Most of their parents have jobs, but just dont make enough to pay rent and buy food. The homeless must stretch their money so far that 60% of them go regularly without meals ? that means kids, too. In the midst of Orange Countys affluence, more children go to bed hungry here than in any other place in California. The homeless are stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty. They need a hot meal, a hand up, and hope. The Orange County Rescue Mission helps hungry and homeless families in Orange County get back on their feet. We deliver hope by providing food, shelter, clothing, guidance, counseling, education, job training, parenting classes and health care. Our faith-focused mission is to minister the love of Jesus Christ to the least, the last and the lost.

Fred Jordan Mission

Skid Row Homeless Organization / 

Many of the problems that keep people imprisoned in lives of poverty and hopelessness can be addressed through  feeding, clothing, sheltering and other so-called "social" programs. But we believe that the root of many of these difficulties can be traced to spiritual  problems. And that only through an infusion of spiritual hope can people truly realize their full potential. As a Christian outreach, Fred  Jordan Missions places a high priority on introducing people to the love, the  grace, and the power that comes from personal faith in Jesus Christ. That's why  the Mission provides daily chapel services and other spiritual ministries for those on Skid Row. Family church services in both English and Spanish meet on Saturdays and Sundays, followed by family meals.
