How do REALTORS decide what organizations they will contribute to this year?

Asked by Hugo Torres, Arcadia, CA Fri Feb 13, 2009

For many years, the REALTOR community has been a substantial financial resource for non-profit and charitable organizations. As we begin the fundraising season, how are REALTORS choosing who will receive donations? These are tough calls for an industry that is known for its giving nature.

We are going with our same plan as previous years but with decreased contribution amounts. To offset this we are considering doing additional volunteering.

Thru REALTOR Organizations I currently belong to we find ourselves donating to local and state charities who will then distribute any funds raised through our organization to the areas of most critical need. We find that dividing up monies raised between 2 or 3 community organizations becomes more useful to many in need than just donating to one charity. Also, donating to charity is not just about donating funds...some of your local organizations may need voluntueers, to clean up/fix up properties for seniors, assist in finding interim/rental housing for a displaced family. Our local board has started a Food Pantry, REALTOR from our area donate non-perishable items that are then taken to a local organization and then given to any in need. Let's not forget one thing...if you do not have monetary funds to contribute...the most important contribution is your time, and kindness.
