Support the Realtors
Relief Foundation

When major disaster strikes, the Realtors Relief Foundation has one goal: Help families who have endured unimaginable loss. The Realtors Relief Foundation is currently coordinating efforts to provide relief for those affected by wildfires in California. The foundation has made a $1 million commitment to wildfire victims. Your support will help us continue meeting the immediate housing needs of disaster victims.

Talking to thousands of members via virtual meetings throughout this difficult year, we’ve been struck by the extraordinary way Realtors have lifted each other up with words of encouragement and acts of kindness. Today, we ask you to extend that spirit of generosity to victims of wildfires with a contribution to the Realtors Relief Foundation.

Donate today by visiting https://secure.realtor.org/RelFundTrack.nsf/Contribution?OpenForm= .

The foundation’s mission speaks directly to the work we do as Realtors. It helps disaster victims with temporary housing assistance in the weeks and months following a disaster. What could be more important during this global pandemic than the safety of home?

Even a small donation to the Realtors Relief Foundation can help bring shelter, and hope, to displaced families and individuals. Every dollar you donate goes directly to victims of disaster. The National Association of Realtors covers 100% of administrative expenses. 

In September, NAR commemorated the founding of the Foundation in September 2001. That’s when Realtors raised more than $8 million to ensure no survivor of the 9/11 terrorist attacks lost their home as a result of the tragedy. Over the past 19 years, the foundation has distributed more than $32 million in relief aid for some 91 disasters in 37 states.

Please help keep this important work going by making a tax-deductible donation to the Realtors Relief Foundation. You can do so in less than one minute using your credit card on NAR’s secure online form. Then, encourage others to donate by sharing our Facebook appeal (link is external) with the hashtag #REALTORSAreGoodNeighbors.

Your donation today will benefit those who need help now. Let’s show those who are hurting, and the entire nation, the spirit of compassion that runs through the Realtors family. 

James Walker, CCIM, is the 2020 president of NYSCAR, Albany, N.Y.
