The NEAR REALTOR® Crisis Fund is a fund established for NEAR REALTORS® who face extraordinary financial need. As 1099 independent contractors, REALTORS® are often hard-pressed to adequately save for unexpected emergencies or life problems. Therefore, concerned members of our association, with the support from the Board of Directors, created REALTOR® Crisis Fund.
Proceeds benefit the NEAR REALTOR® Crisis Fund, a fraternal purpose. Please note that while NEAR is a registered 501 C-6 not-for-profit Association, NEAR is not a registered 501 C-3 Charitable organization, and therefore your donation does not qualify as a charitable deduction for tax purposes. We recommend that you check with your tax preparer or accountant, since your donation may qualify as a business expense for tax purposes.
