What is the optional $25 request on your dues bill?

While we used to provide an opportunity to pay a political advocacy contribution, this year we are allocating to a new fund that stays in Massachusetts.  Contributions to the Massachusetts Real Estate Community Alliance (MRECA) are voluntary and are not tax deductible. This fund is used for research, advocacy and analysis on housing issues in Massachusetts and promote a greater understanding of how housing policies affect the state and economy.  It is an incredible opportunity for us to be a part of the housing solution in the state and we ask for your support this year with a fair share contribution.  We also honor those contributors who instead chose to contribute to the RPAC that provides PAC dollars to housing friendly candidates. Both are valuable tools in our effort to fight for private property rights and opportunities.
