REALTORS® and other generous partners can more than double their charitable contributions to support safe and affordable housing and homeownership programs by investing in the Colorado REALTOR® Foundation on Colorado GIVES Day – December 5, 2017.
Thanks to a generous $25,000 matching gift challenge from Ent Credit Union, every dollar donated to the Colorado REALTOR® Foundation on December 5, 2017, up to $25,000, will be matched by Ent. And, every dollar donated to CRF on Colorado GIVES Day also will earn an added contribution, based upon percentage of total giving, from the $1 million Incentive Fund jointly created by Community First Foundation and FirstBank.
This means that a $500 tax deductible contribution to CRF becomes more than a $1,000 investment in programs that promote safe and affordable housing, consumer education about homeownership and provide disaster relief assistance to Coloradans in need.
But, it’s good for one day only – December 5, 2017.
Colorado GIVES Day is a great time to join the Colorado REALTOR® Foundation’s new giving societies that recognize and celebrate the philanthropic generosity of the Colorado REALTOR® community. December 5, 2017 offers the perfect opportunity to join your peers as a new CRF President’s Council member with a $1,000 contribution. President’s Council members receive a distinguished R Cares gold lapel pin and recognition on CRF’s website and at programs and events. Learn more about contributing.
