The Colorado Association of REALTORS® is in the process of finalizing its plans that will give us the best opportunity to help victims of the Colorado floods. The plans will provide two separate ways to help affected REALTORS® individually and affected communities through non-profit housing organizations.
Through NAR’s REALTORS® Relief Foundation CAR is seeking funds to help provide direct support to Colorado REALTORS® and individuals of the public in the flood areas. We are currently working with NAR to develop a co-op agreement and the criteria that will allow CAR to provide immediate support to these victims. The estimated time for this program to be in place is by the beginning of next week. Donations for these efforts will go through NAR’s REALTORS® Relief Foundation.
The other plan is to help affected communities through non-profit organizations. CARHOF has set up a flood relief campaign through ColoradoGives.org and is currently working on developing a quick and easy grant application that will help expedite the grant process. Donations are now being accepted at Coloradogives.org/carhof-floodrelief. The grant application will be available Friday, September 20, 2013.
Members, the public and non-profit housing organizations will be able to access both campaigns on ColoradoREALTORS.com.
Members and associations will have two options to donate. They can help REALTORS® and individual members of the public by donating to NAR’s REALTOR® Relief Foundation at http://www.realtor.org/programs/realtors-relief-foundation/make-a-donation. Remember 100 percent of the donations will go to help those affected by the Colorado floods providing they meet the established criteria.
The other option is for members and the public to donate to CARHOF at https://www.Coloradogives.org/carhof-floodrelief. Donations made through this portal will be dedicated to non-profit housing organizations.
