Making a Difference in Our Communities

As Realtors®, we are all very involved in our communities. NVBR Realtor® and Affiliate members work to strengthen the communities that we call home. Much of our work is accomplished through the Northwestern Vermont Realtors® Charitable Foundation, which works to enhance our communities through financial programs, education, and housing-related initiatives and community activities. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports community initiatives in Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties.

In 2019, the Foundation will support the following charitable organizations:

Realtors® Relief Foundation

NAR first launched the REALTORS® Relief Foundation (RRF) as the REALTORS® Relief Fund in 2001, within hours of the devastating Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks—raising more than $8.4 million to provide assistance so that surviving family members could stay in their homes. Since then, more than $22 million has been raised for victims of disasters, including wildfires, tornadoes, floods, and hurricanes. Today, RRF exists as a 501(c)(3) organization established to provide housing-related assistance to victims of disasters and for other charitable purposes permitted under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
