Money collected will be used to distribute grants to help REALTORS® who have suffered losses resulting from recent California wildfires.

(SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 2, 2007) -- The Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS® (SCCAOR) announced today they will contribute $10,000 to the C.A.R. Disaster Relief Fund, which provides aid for REALTORS®, local association members, staff and their families, affected by the wildfires and other natural disasters.  The donation comes from the SCCAOR Foundation, the charitable arm of the association.

C.A.R. established the Disaster Relief Fund in the wake of the devastating 2003 California wildfires. Grants provided by the fund are used to help members of the REALTOR® family who have incurred substantial losses due to wildfires and other disasters by distributing grants of $1,000 to $10,000.

"We understand how rewarding it is to own a home, and we sympathize with people who lost homes as a result of the recent wildfires," SCCAOR President Warren Winsness said. "It's heartbreaking to see so many people in Southern California lose their homes. We hope our donation contributes to the reconstruction of the victims' homes and lives."  If you are a REALTOR® who has been impacted by the wildfires, you may make an application to request a grant from the C.A.R. Disaster Relief Fund by calling Elizabeth de Carteret at (213) 739-8308, or by e-mail to elizabethd@car.org.  If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the C.A.R. Disaster Relief Fund, please make checks payable to the California Community Foundation and write "C.A.R. Disaster Relief Fund" on the memo line. Send checks to the California Community Foundation, 445 S. Figueroa St., #3400, Los Angeles. More information about the C.A.R. Disaster Relief Fund can be found under REALTORS® Care in the "About C.A.R." section of C.A.R. online at www.car.org.
