Illinois REALTORS® is contributing $25,000 to the NAR REALTORS® Relief Foundationto assist Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico.
The Executive Committee and the Board of Directors made the decision during its October Business Meetings last week. This is the third sizeable donation the 47,000-member Illinois REALTORS® has made in the last two months to help American hurricane victims. In September, a $50,000 donation was made to the Texas Association of REALTORS® to help Hurricane Harvey victims and a $50,000 donation was made to the Florida Association of REALTORS® to help Hurricane Irma victims.
Illinois REALTORS® has donated nearly $1 million since 1997 to help victims of disasters in and outside of Illinois.
In addition to responding to the hurricanes, Illinois REALTORS® is in the middle of an effort to help those affected by severe flooding this summer in Northern Illinois. The association, through its non-profit Illinois REALTORS® Relief Foundation, has distributed nearly $30,000 for flood victims. Illinois REALTORS®’ disaster relief foundation also partners with NAR’s REALTORS® Relief Foundation to get more money to Illinois disaster victims.
