We know that Berkshire Realtors not only help their clients achieve the American Dream, but did you know that 7 out of 10* Realtors nationwide also volunteer countless hours to help improve and develop their communities? Annually, REALTOR® Magazine gives Realtors an opportunity to enhance their charitable work through the Volunteering Works Mentoring Program and $1,000 seed money. Realtors® who work on small-scale charitable efforts that have growth potential are encouraged to apply. Five recipients will benefit from a year of one-on-one mentoring from a member of the Good Neighbor Society and a $1,000 grant as seed money to help implement improvements in their community program. The entry deadline is February 28, 2019. For a Volunteering Works entry form, visit www.nar.realtor/gna to get the application.
Volunteering Works recipients are selected based on their dedication to volunteering and the potential for their charitable work to expand or improve with the help of an expert mentor. Ideal candidates have been active in charity work, can identify specific challenges they would like to address and have specific goals for the future of their community service project.
