Family and Community


The NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation, together with the REALTOR® Relief Fund, distributed $803,801.79 to 830 families following Hurricane Florence.

Community engagement is one way NC REALTORS® make an EPIC impact in their communities and differentiate themselves. Members have multiple ways to get involved and give back. Through NC REALTORS® 501(c)(3) entities, private foundations, strategic partnerships, and cause marketing campaigns, community engagement is important to us and our members.

One of the greatest impacts NC REALTORS® have on their communities is the coordinate efforts and immediate response to help those affected by natural disasters. Because of the generosity of REALTORS® across the state, together with the REALTOR® Relief Fund, the NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation distributed over $800,000 to 830 families following Hurricane Florence.
