Charitable giving among REALTOR® associations increased significantly in 2021 compared to the year before, according to new data from the National Association of REALTORS®.
The NAR’s Community Aid and Real Estate (CARE) Report shows that REALTOR® associations donated a median of $12,070 this past year, a 20% increase over 2020.
“REALTORS® are deeply involved in their communities and this report shines a light on the great volunteer efforts by NAR members,” said NAR President Leslie Rouda Smith, a broker associate at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate in Dallas. “It is inspiring to see REALTOR® associations across the country continue to boost local charitable efforts, and I’m proud to be a part of such a compassionate and caring group.”
Additionally, the CARE Report found that 66% of NAR members volunteer on a monthly basis, with 87% making personal donations.
