Illuminating Our Community, Home and Property Ownership

Community Events and Grant Information

Hands holding sparkler in front of face

Ignite Others gives associations an exciting opportunity to connect with members and build bridges in communities by sponsoring turnkey initiatives designed to educate the next generation about homeownership and the real estate profession, and inspire community involvement to create positive, impactful change.

Ignite Others events will include an “illumination” component (e.g. sparklers, glow sticks) to shine a light on how REALTORS® can and do “Ignite Others.”

Ignite Others Local Association Grants

New grants are available to associations to help host an Ignite Others Initiative. These grants are a gateway for engagement, providing the opportunity to build goodwill with policy makers and stakeholders while elevating your REALTOR® association, enhancing our members’ reputations, uniting communities and building cooperation that opens doors to future collaborations.

National Homeownership Month: June 2024

REALTORS® across the country come together within their communities to ignite awareness for the REALTORS® Relief Foundation.

REALTORS® set a personal fundraising goal and personal distance to walk, jog, or run, as an action item for pledges toward the foundation. 

Ignite Others has set a collective fundraising goal of $1,000,000

Coming soon: an exclusive digital platform for members to set up individual fundraising pages, assist in collecting donations, and track fundraising progress.

As an added incentive, the top five individual fundraisers, and the five individuals that cumulatively log the most mileage during the month of June, will be invited to the start line during the 5K in Boston at NAR NXT in 2024.

REALTOR® Relief Foundation Impact:

  • $40 Million Awarded
  • 100+ Disaster Recoveries Funded
  • 43 States/Territories Assisted
  • 20,000+ Families Helped

100% of the funds donated go directly to disaster relief efforts. NAR and the REALTORS® Relief Foundation cover all overhead.
