We know that Bekrshire Realtors® not only help their clients achieve the American Dream by helping them buy and sell their homes, they also volunteer countless hours to help improve and develop their communities. REALTOR® Magazine‘s Good Neighbor Society has helped Realtors® extend and enhance their charitable work through the Volunteering Works grant and mentoring program. The program, which assigns mentors to Realtors® who want to increase and expand their community service outreach, is now seeking entries. Volunteering Works Grant & Mentoring Program: Application Due Feb. 26.
The Good Neighbor Society is seeking applications from Realtors® who work on small-scale charitable efforts that have growth potential. The Volunteering Works grant and mentoring program matches REALTORS® who would like to expand their community service outreach with mentors who are already successful volunteer leaders.
Five Volunteering Works applicants will be selected to receive 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 to their community program.
Recipients are selected based on their dedication to the community through volunteer work and the potential for their charitable work to be expanded or improved 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.
Mentors are members of the Good Neighbor Society — the more than 130 past recipients of REALTOR®Magazine’s Good Neighbor Award or Good Neighbor Award honorable mention. Mentors on average spend more than 20 hours a week on volunteer work and have built and led some of the most effective charitable organizations in the country.
