THE DIRECT GIVER PROGRAM
We’re all in for a wild ride this election year and 2020 will be more important than ever to support elected officials who support the real estate industry. The  Direct Giver Program  is a unique tool you have as a REALTOR ®  in Wisconsin, and you can use it to support PRO-REALTOR ®  elected officials and candidates at all levels of government.
 
Thank you to these GMAR members who have given to the Direct Giver Program in 2019.  Click here  for a list of 2019 Direct Givers.
 
Please contact  Marne Stuck , your Government Affairs Director at the GMAR if you are interested in becoming a Direct Giver and would like to support a candidate.
