Want to help guide our new Charitable Foundation?

At the end of September, a Special General Meeting was held to determine whether or not we would use the Board’s vacant land, otherwise known as the ‘Back 40’, to establish a charitable foundation in the name of Fraser Valley REALTORS.

Now we’re calling on you again, and need your help to make the next step as the foundation begins to take shape.

We’re looking for member volunteers to be a part of an advisory council for the new charitable foundation. This group of members (the exact size is undetermined at this point) would be responsible for establishing the Foundation’s guidelines for charitable donations – this includes creating the application and evaluation process for charities looking to receive donations.

This is your chance to be a part of something very special to our Board, and an initiative that will impact the lives of many within our communities.

Ideally, members of the advisory council will have a background that includes volunteer or related business experience, a familiarity with not-for-profit organizations and the charitable landscape in the Fraser Valley, and a desire to see the creation of a successful and effective foundation for our membership. But regardless, we want everyone who’s interested to apply!

If you would like to apply for a position with the Fraser Valley REALTORS Charitable Foundation advisory council, please complete this brief survey to share any prior experience or relevant information about yourself. Deadline for submissions: Friday, November 25.
