REALTOR® Relief Foundation chairman grateful for NEFAR generosity

NAR’s REALTORS® Relief Foundation was very grateful for NEFAR’s generous donation this year. This email was received by NEFAR CEO Glenn East on December 22, 2021.


Dear Northeast Florida Association of Realtors®,

On behalf of the REALTORS® Relief Foundation (RRF), I thank you for your support and joining us in commemorating the 20th anniversary. It is difficult to express our gratitude for you in a manner that is commensurate with the impact you have made.

Instead, it is best to illustrate the results already generated by your collective generosity. On Friday, December 10, tornados devastated communities from southern states to the Midwest. The disaster has been recorded as the deadliest U.S. tornado outbreak in 10 years. Within 24 hours, RRF was in contact with the Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas State Associations of REALTORS®. Applications for funding were received on Tuesday; and by Thursday, all grants were approved by the REALTORS® Relief Foundation Board of Directors.

In less than a week, $1,700,000 was made available to the impacted areas.

The immediacy in response was possible because of you.

If this outbreak had occurred a year ago, funding would not have been readily available, and action would have been delayed. Your support of RRF has made a real impact for families affected by disasters and will continue to do so.

The 20th Anniversary Campaign has demonstrated to me the life changing outcomes that occur when we come together and act on the charitable spirits within us. RRF has helped thousands of families and can continue making big differences in the lives of our neighbors throughout the country with the ongoing support of our REALTOR® family.

Thank you again for your generosity towards RRF. We are keeping those impacted by the tornadoes in our thoughts and prayers.

Best wishes this holiday season,


Michael Ford
