REALTOR® Community Service

REACT

Berkshire REALTORS® work together with the community to identify, support and sustain charitable organizations that improve the quality of life in Berkshire County.

We invite you to join us in our efforts to
enhance the well-being of those within the Berkshire community.  Your kind and
generous donation is greatly appreciated.

Our group is a committee of the Berkshire County Board of REALTORS, a 501-c6 not-for-profit trade association.  While we give all funds raised
to 501-c3 charities, donations made directly are not tax deductible.
