Thank you for being so generous!
Did you know 82 percent of REALTORS® donate money to charitable causes each year? That's well above the national average of 56.6 percent of Americans who do so. This statistic was shared in the Community Aid and Real Estate (CARE) Report of the National Association of REALTORS®. The report provides insight on the monetary and volunteer contributions of members, broker-owners and association executives of Multiple Listing Services (MLS) and what they give to society.
What does this mean locally? It means 5,960 SPAAR members are donating in the communities in which they live and work each year. In addition, in 2018, SPAAR donated more than $125,000 to area causes, organizations and individuals on behalf of its members.
"This is amazing news, and yet I'm not surprised knowing how involved and generous our members are year-round," said Joe McKinley, director of community engagement at SPAAR. "REALTORS® not only work hard in their businesses, but truly make a difference giving back to the members in our communities and creating better places to live."
