The Mid-State Association of REALTORS® began working on creating a Foundation in 2010. Finally, in the summer of 2012, we received our approval from the IRS with our official 501 c 3 status. This allows us to offer our individual and corporate donors a tax deduction for their sponsorships. The possibility of a tax deduction is often an incentive for those who itemize their deductions on their income tax. As a 501 c 3 charity, we are also eligible to receive private foundation grants.
A separate Board of Trustees oversees the Foundation to oversee the programs and events and come up with fundraising ideas.
Mission Statement of the Foundation:
To involve local REALTORS® in giving back to those in need within our Community through Volunteerism and Fundraising.
