Cape Cod and Islands Association of REALTORS® was able to assist five local housing non-profit organizations in accessing $7,500 worth of grants from the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® (MAR) Charitable Foundation.
The MAR Charitable Foundation awards grants to 501c3 organizations that REALTOR® members work with to help those in need throughout Massachusetts. In order to be eligible to receive funds, the non-profit organization must work with a local Cape Cod or Islands-area REALTOR®. Most grants are given to organizations working in the housing or housing-related fields. These grants are made available to local organizations through CCIAOR, who facilitates the application process.
The 2021 grant recipients, which each received a $1,500 grant, are: Belonging to Each Other of Falmouth, Assist Nantucket, Champ Homes, based in Hyannis; Cape & Islands Veterans Outreach Center and The Lily House in Provincetown.
“REALTORS® are good neighbors who support the communities in which they live and work in a myriad of ways,” commented CCIAOR CEO Ryan Castle. “The MAR Charitable Grants program is a tangible way that the REALTOR® community shows how much its members love and care about the places they call home.”
