REALTOR® Care Day

2020 marks the 16th year for REALTOR® Care Day. For the first 15 years, Columbus REALTORS® and local Area Realty and Joint Industry Trade Associations have hosted projects on the same day making this event our largest, community service day. Last year, we had 23 other associations participate in REALTOR® Care Day. This year, we hope to maintain that level of excitement.

However, due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and ‘Stay Safe Ohio’, REALTOR® Care Day will not be a single day event in 2020.

MAIN PROJECT - COLUMBUS REALTORS®

Prior to the COVID-19 break-out, the REALTOR® Care Day Committee had been planning to help our central Ohio Ronald McDonald House create a Community Garden, among other things. We have solidified plans to create the RMHC Garden on June 10 & 11, however the crew size will now be limited to 30 volunteers per day. The project will include:

  • Garden planting
  • Creation of gourd house and vining plant structures
  • Deck staining
  • Fence Painting
  • Power washing/general landscaping
  • Litter Abatement

Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own garden gloves and masks. Columbus REALTORS® will have masks available at registration also. Lunch will be provided by Jet's Pizza. Volunteer spots are available first come, first served. Register for June 10. Register for June 11

AREA ASSOCIATION / JOINT INDUSTRY PROJECTS

Area Realty and Industry Trade Associations are again welcome to be a part of the 2020 REALTOR® Care Day initiative. If your association will commit to participating in a community service project anytime between now and December 31, 2020, the Columbus REALTORS® Foundation will commit to matching funds (up to $500) to help you in accomplishing your project. Application.

This year, we are asking you to think outside the box:

  • In addition to the usual RCD type projects (cleaning up a local park, painting or landscaping a home, etc.), consider a project that helps our front liners, first responders, local businesses, etc.
  • Establish a budget for the project.
  • Submit your Request for RCD Matching Funds Application at least 20 days prior to your event date.
  • Organize your volunteers to accomplish the project.

Let's use our 2020 REALTOR® Care Day projects to help get central Ohioans back on their feet!

REALTOR® Care Day is funded through the Columbus REALTORS® Foundation

 REALTOR® Care Day Weiler Grant

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 toward their REALTOR® Care Day project the following year. 

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. With careful planning, preparation and the dedication of many volunteers, it's amazing how much can be accomplished in one day.
