Real estate brokers and agents understand their communities like few other business professionals, given their work connecting properties with renters, home owners, and small businesses. Because they spend much of their time becoming familiar with and highlighting the attributes aspects of their local areas, they are natural boosters for their communities. Atlanta REALTORS® works to bring together the many talents of our 10,000+ members to support our community in a variety of ways and to recognize our members for their extraordinary acts of selflessness.
The Atlanta REALTORS® supports multiple local charities through fundraising and volunteerism. These charities are selected by the Board of Directors on a biennial basis.
For 2020, the decision was made to provide volunteer support to local food banks throughout Metro Atlanta and to provide financial support to the Atlanta Children's Shelter through the Annual Spring Social Fundraiser and the Southeast Residential Real Estate Trade Show.
In addition to the charitable activities of the Association, our YPN has it's own outreach mission and has supported Children's Healthcare of Atlanta for several years. Not only do they raise much needed funds, volunteers take time to do arts and crafts with the very special little patients at CHOA on a monthly basis.
The Great Pandemic has certainly created much upheaval and created a greater need than ever to support our local community. Though we are not able to get as hands-on as we had planned, our REALTOR® family has continued to show our tremendous commitment to giving whatever is needed most. We are so very grateful to the many ARA Members who have contributed time and effort to provide meals to hundreds of families in Atlanta in 2020!
