Victoria Real Estate Board

Victoria Real Estate Board Call for Charities

Victoria area REALTORS® are committed to good citizenship. Through the Board’s Community Donations Program, Realtors contribute to the well-being of the communities where they live and work.

The Victoria Real Estate Board collects a sum for community donations each year, and looks for requests from the community to support organizations that help make the Victoria area a better place for all residents. The Board’s Community Relations Committee reviews applications and chooses a charity to support financially and if appropriate, with volunteers.

Previous recipients include HeroWork and Habitat for Humanity Victoria.
