The REALTOR® community’s national donation and fundraising total keeps on growing.
We are proud to announce REALTORS® have reported donating and raising a whopping $131.3 million for a wide variety of charities and causes from 2012 through 2017. Thanks to the REALTORS®, brokerages, franchisors, boards, associations and affiliated charitable organizations who shared their giving information from 2017 with us late last year in support of our efforts to quantify the generosity of our membership.
Of course, REALTORS® give back in many ways beyond financial support as well, including volunteering and raising awareness of important needs in their communities. For evidence of this fact, look no further than the 15 nominees for the Canadian REALTORS Care® Award 2019 Proudly Presented by REALTOR.ca, who were introduced on the CREA Café earlier this week.
This year’s nominees hail from communities from coast to coast and are examples of REALTORS® who are deeply committed to charities and causes close to their hearts. The names of these outstanding REALTORS® were put forward by friends and colleagues in recognition of their charitable achievements last year and beyond. Watch for the announcement of our 2019 winner in April at which point CREA will share their inspiring story and donate $5,000 to their charity of choice.
The generosity of the REALTOR® community is undeniable and truly inspiring. Here’s to another year of making a difference.
