Planning is underway for our 14th annual REALTOR® Care Day to be held Wednesday, Jun. 6, 2017. This year, the main project will include several undertakings in Columbus' Milo-Grogan neighborhood. In addition, area realty associations are planning projects all over central Ohio.

REALTOR® Care Day is an annual event where central Ohio REALTORS®, affiliates, family and friends volunteer their time to give back to their communities. With careful planning, preparation and the dedication of many volunteers, it's amazing how much can be accomplished in one day.

REALTOR® Care Day started with one community service project in 2005. Last year's event involved 24 groups working on  45 projects all over central Ohio! Since its inception, REALTOR® Care Day has resulted in over $443,200 invested back into our communities.

Although REALTORS® donate time and talent to their communities throughout the year, this one day event focuses the energy of hundreds of volunteers in areas all over the central Ohio area.

REALTOR® Care Day is funded through the Columbus REALTORS® Foundation. Area realty and industry trade associations can apply for matching funds (up to $500 each) to help fund their community service efforts for this event. Additional assistance is received from many individuals and companies through in-kind donations of money, goods and services.

The REALTOR® Care Day Weiler Grant, established in 2014, was created to recognize Area Realty Association projects that exemplify the principles of REALTOR® Care Day. Each year, an association will receive an additional $500 in funding which they may use towards their REALTOR® Care Day project the following year.
