Donations, Grants and the REALTORS Care® Foundation

We at the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington believe in assisting local shelter-related organizations. We make direct donations to shelter-related organizations (upon request) and support organizations’ applications for grants from the REALTORS Care® Foundation.

For more information about whether your organization qualifies for a donation or RAHB support, please contact us at Also check out the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation for information about grants to shelter-related charitable organizations.
