Community Outreach Funding
This year we increased our donations by 50% from last year. The need was great in our community, RFOWC provided over $17,500 to many of our local non-profits to help those who needed it most. Some of the funds were used to by household supplies during COVID.
Project Angel Tree
This year Project Angel Tree looked a little different. We asked members to either text or visit our website to make a donation and Gardian ad Litem shopped for holiday gifts. Our generous donors gave over $15,000 which provided gifts for 86 children.
The REALTOR® Foundation of Wake County used Facebook to reach our members this year. The need was great and our REALTORS® opened up their hearts, 429 donors gave almost $116,000!
Facebook donations increased 517% from last year with social donors giving $8,900.
