Welcome

What is REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF)? RAF is a vital service for YOU and YOUR business. Did you know that 30% of your RAF contribution supports local issues that will affect your livelihood?  By contributing to the REALTOR® Action Fund, you are helping to protect private property rights through C.A.R.'s lobbying efforts, and local issues and candidate campaigns.  Your participation will keep this going!  Contributions to the  REALTOR® Action Fund have stopped:

1. Point of sale mandates that could have cost the homeowner $1000s of dollars reducing their equity or may have even prevented the sale from going through.
2. Direct taxing of REALTOR®  commissions and other services related to the transaction.
3. Political candidates who are against building housing and against REALTOR® issues.

Together we can successfully educate and encourage REALTORS® to contribute in the REALTOR® Action Fund.  The REALTOR® Action Fund Blueprint to Fundraising guide [Please note:  the guide is currently being updated, so, prior to starting any type of fundraiser activity, please reach out to C.A.R. staff for review and approval.] is designed to provide you with a step by step guide to fundraising, including collateral materials you need to educate and inform your members on the importance of the REALTOR® Action Fund. 


On behalf of the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.), the REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF) leadership wants to thank you for your support of the REALTOR® Action fund and helping C.A.R. and your local Association reach our yearly goals! We appreciate your commitment to organized real estate and support of the Political Programs. If you have any questions, please contact your C.A.R. staff listed below.

-Your RAF Leadership
