Start giving today!

This year’s REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive will be unlike any other. Instead of collecting clothing or blankets, we’re asking our members and their offices to make financial donations in support of some of the most vulnerable people in our Fraser Valley communities between November 23 and 30.

This will allow us to continue to help the 26 non-profit groups we have supported in the past and the people they care for while protecting our partners – over 60 volunteer members and 40 real estate brokerages acting as drop-off locations – from the potential safety risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our charity groups truly appreciate the support.

In the words of Keri Vermeulen, Communications Manager with NightShift Street Ministries: “We have been honoured and humbled by the support of the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive in past years. I want to extend a very special thank you from our team. The generous support you have provided has helped so many people in need on our streets, experiencing homelessness, poverty, addiction and mental illness.”

Giving is a few clicks away

It’s easy to donate to the 2020 REALTORS Care® Charity Drive. We’ve set up a new campaign page through Charitable Impact, a Vancouver-based registered charity that helps people across Canada and groups like us pool their charitable giving funds so the collected money can be distributed to other registered Canadian charities.

Start giving today following these easy steps:

  1. To get to the FVREB Giving Group page, point your browser to:

2. Click on the blue Give button near the middle of the page.

3. Fill out the form that appears to indicate the Amount you want to give.

4. Leave the For Group (optional) box blank, or leave a note about why you want to donate (so we can share your quote anonymously with others to encourage them to donate).

When you support the campaign, you could earn exclusive swag like a REALTORS Care® mask and a unique digital badge to share on your websites, email signatures, and in your social media feeds.

Donations of $5 or more will receive a tax receipt from Charitable Impact on behalf of the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive. Note: Tax receipts will be issued based on the donation amount. Non-profit groups receiving funds from Charitable Impact will receive the amount of the donation minus any credit card processing fees charged to Charitable Impact.

We hope we can count on you to donate to the cause – to get the latest information on the REALTORS Care® Charity Drive, follow us on the Blanket Drive Facebook page. Please help us raise more funds to support people in the Fraser Valley by sharing our fundraising campaign with your clients.
