Research & Education 
For the past few years, the Wisconsin REALTORS® Foundation has become a statewide organization dedicated to unifying REALTORS® behind charitable causes to make Wisconsin a better place to live, work, and play. The WRF is dedicated to help children in the areas of: education, hunger, homelessness/abuse, and serious illnesses.
