Ottawa REALTORS® Give $113,377 to 18 Shelter-Related Charities

December 22, 2022

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) raised over $113,000 for the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation (ORCF) in 2022 and provided grants to 18 shelter-related charities in Ottawa and the surrounding areas.

Each year, OREB Members contribute funds to the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation (ORCF) through our $2 per member per month donations. These funds are combined with the proceeds from our Annual Charity Golf Tournament, which took place this past August and raised over $17,000.

These charities assist local area residents who may not have adequate shelter, along with those who may be dealing with homelessness, addiction, mental or physical illness, spousal or familial abuse, disabilities, poverty, or ageing.

The 2022 Ottawa-area grant recipients are:

  • Ancoura
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County
  • Bruce House
  • Chrysalis House
  • Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre
  • Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa
  • Hospice Care Ottawa
  • Innercity Ministries
  • Interval House
  • Jericho Road Christian Ministries
  • Lanark Highlands Youth Centre
  • Nelson House
  • Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities
  • Ottawa-Carleton Lifeskills
  • Perley Health Foundation
  • Restoring Hope Ministries
  • The Table
  • Youth Services Bureau

We truly appreciate our Members who endorsed these charities and continue to provide ongoing support to them. We thank all of you for your contributions to the REALTORS Care® Foundation in 2022. We look forward to raising even more funds to donate to Ottawa and area shelter-based charities in 2023!
