REALTORS Care® about their community

REALTORS® play meaningful roles in the communities where they work and live. They are committed to volunteering their time and raising funds for the causes and charities close to their hearts. “REALTORS Care®” is a guiding principle and brand that unites the great charitable work by the REALTOR® community.

Every year, Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board raise funds for the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation to help shelter-related charities in the Ottawa area. The funds are raised through an annual charity golf tournament, monthly Member donations, the RONA Card program, and other individual donations.

The goal is to provide funding to charities who assist those who do not have adequate shelter; those who may be dealing with homelessness, addiction, mental or physical illness, spousal or familial abuse, physical disability, poverty or aging.
