Applicants must be members of the National Association of REALTORS®.
Nominees must be members of NAR in good standing.
Nominees should have made a significant impact as a volunteer for 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Eligible activities are not limited to real estate or housing issues and may include volunteer work done overseas.
Nominees should have made a significant contribution of personal time, but contributions of money, materials, or other resources will be considered by the judges as well.
Nominees will be judged on level of personal contribution, impact of personal contribution, broadness of impact, and the project’s suitability as a role model for other REALTORS®.
The award is intended to recognize individual contributions, not association- or company-wide efforts. However, if an individual within your company can be singled out as instrumental to the success of a group effort, he or she is eligible. If the achievements of two people (such as a married couple or co-founders of an organization) absolutely cannot be separated, they can enter as a pair and their entry will be considered as one.
Some portion of the nominee’s community work must have taken place between January 2022 and April 2023, but judges will also consider ongoing efforts outside that time frame that demonstrate a depth of commitment.
Nominees should be able to document the results of their individual involvement though published reports and/or testimonials from the organization they served or the people they helped.
Applications must be completed and submitted online. REALTORS® may nominate themselves or may be nominated by someone else.
The grants must be issued to a U.S. 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
