The Oregon REALTORS® HOME Foundation is a 501(c)3 charity that provides financial resources to create, expand, and encourage home ownership opportunities for Oregonians at or below local median income. Despite their best efforts, far too many people in today’s workforce simply can’t afford the American Dream of homeownership. We understand that homes stabilize families, and we want to help make that achievable for more Oregonians.
Since 2004, the HOME Foundation has been collaborating with organizations intent on helping Oregonians achieve homeownership. We have supported efforts to provide financial resources to create, expand and encourage homeownership opportunities. To date, we have distributed over $1,700,000 in grants statewide!
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Your contributions provide essential funds to organizations dedicated to affordable housing in Oregon. HOME Foundation funds have been utilized to:
- Educate consumers about affordable housing issues
- Provide the tools needed to make homeownership more attainable
- Address both immediate and long-term needs through strong public/private partnerships
- Give more Oregonians the opportunity to make a lasting investment in local communities
Fundraising occurs year round with annual events such as the Driving It HOME Golf Tournament and the Taste of Oregon. Events held in local communities raise money that stays right in the local community.
