Colorado Gives Day and CAR Foundation Updates
COLORADO GIVES DAY
Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. We invite you to join us on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 and donate to the Colorado Association of REALTORS® Foundation. Over the span of 25 years, The CAR Foundation has invested $7.7 million to support Colorado nonprofits that encourage safe and affordable housing, promote homeownership, and provide disaster relief to Coloradans.
Every donation made is boosted by the incentive fund, increasing the value of every dollar! The CAR Foundation promotes safe and affordable housing, advances homeownership for all Coloradans, and provides housing-related disaster assistance to our neighbors in need.
As a “thank you” for your support, every donation on Colorado Gives Day that is over $100 will receive The CAR Foundation’s new heart-shaped pin. Please contact Stacey Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-916-2190 if you have any questions and thank you for your donation.
NEW FOUNDATION PINS
The CAR Foundation is excited to announce the release of their brand new pins for the Foundation. Each pin is magnetic and in the shape of a heart, as the REALTORS® are the heart of the Foundation. Each pin is a $100 donation that can be designated to Housing, Education, or Disaster Relief.

DISASTER RELIEF FUND
In the past, the Disaster Relief Fund has only been available to access after a disaster has ended. Oftentimes, funding is needed much sooner. The Foundation is happy to announce that the conversation of how to best use and distribute the Disaster Relief Fund during a crisis has begun. The Foundation is thrilled to brainstorm ways on how to best assist in times of disaster.
The CAR Foundation would like to extend a “thank you” to Bob Fullerton for inviting Stacey Brown, CAR Foundation Executive Director, to the Mountain District lunch during Fall Forum to discuss how to use the funds. The Foundation is open to any ideas or suggestions as they formulate a strategy to best serve communities in Colorado during times of disaster. Please contact Stacey with any input you have on this matter.
