On Wednesday, the GAAR Board of Directors approved increasing the grant amount for the Good Neighbor Awards to $5,000 to be split among the recipient's charities!
If five Good Neighbors are selected, each recipient's charity will receive $1,000. Similarly, if only 2 recipients are selected, they would divide the $5,000, with each charity receiving $2,500.
Submit your application now! The deadline to apply is Thursday, October 31st!
Do you know a REALTOR® or Affiliate Member that goes above and beyond to help the community? Do you dedicate your free time to a local charity?
If the answer is "yes" to either question, both are eligible to apply for the 2019 GAAR Good Neighbor Award. A friend, family member, colleague or charity can nominate a member OR a member can nominate themselves!
Recipients will receive a minimum $1,000 grant for their charity
and will be featured in GAAR's consumer outreach campaign.
The Good Neighbor Award Program not only recognizes individuals and their charities for their good works, but it also helps the public understand the positive impact of REALTORS® in our community. GAAR will recognize our Good Neighbors and their charities on NewMexicoHomeSearch.com, magazine ads, plus each Good Neighbor will have a chance to represent their charity on New Mexico Living morning show.
Good Neighbor Awards are open to all GAAR members, both REALTOR® and Affiliate, who dedicate themselves to volunteer service. Up to four REALTOR® recipients and one Affiliate recipient are awarded. Eligible candidates must be a member of GAAR in good standing, meet all eligibility requirements and submit completed applications.
