Realty Community Service Award Requirements and Restrictions

  • Good standing – Nominees must be in good standing in their real estate trade organizations.
  • Livability – Nominees should have contributed to a program that improves the livability of a local community. Those activities are not limited to real estate or housing issues, and include causes such as crime prevention, mentoring, and homelessness prevention.
  • Individual – This program’s intent is to recognize individual contributions, not trade organization or company-wide efforts. Funds cannot be awarded to a real estate trade organization’s 501(c)(3) or foundation.
  • Personal contributions – Nominees should have made a significant contribution of personal time, but contributions of money, materials, or other resources, will be considered by the selection committee. Nominees will be selected on level of personal contribution, impact of personal contribution, broadness of impact, and the project’s suitability as a role model for others.
  • Documentation – Real estate agents must be able to provide documentation of their individual involvement through published reports and/or testimonials from the organizations they served or the people they assisted.
  • Timeline – Some portion of the nominee’s community work must have taken place between May 2018 - March 31, 2019. The selection committee has discretion to consider ongoing efforts outside that timeframe that demonstrate a depth of commitment.
  • Nomination – Only entries completed online via CyberGrants by May 27, 2019 will be considered.
  • Qualifying nonprofit – The nonprofit organization must be tax exempt under the Internal Revenue Service Codes:
    • 501(c)(3) public charities with 509(a)(1) and 509(a)(2) designations
    • 501 (c)(3) public charities with 509(a)(3) and 509(a)(2) designation — Type I or II only — if documented by the IRS, OR if legal opinion is provided
    • Governmental agencies (charitable purpose), including public schools
  • Grant presentation – A check presentation will be held at the winning real estate agent’s trade organization convention when possible, or an onsite presentation will be held at the nonprofit’s location.
  • Reporting – An online impact report is required of each winning nonprofit grant recipient. This report will capture the impact of the grant on the initiative or program is was awarded for.
