Ontario Realtors Care Foundation

The Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation was established as the Canadian Real Estate Board Foundation - Ontario Fund in 1967 as part of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) Foundation.

In 1978 the Foundation returned as a provincial organization -- named the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) Foundation.

For 21 years, from 1978 to 1999, grants were made to a variety of charitable organization across Ontario. In 1999 the decision was made to focus grant monies primarily to shelter-based charitable organizations.

In 2002 Foundation Board introduced the fellowship program, a special program to honour and acknowledge the contributions of REALTORS®, their families and friends who enable the good work of the Foundation.

Four years later the Foundation celebrated another exciting change. In 2006 the name of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) Foundation changed to the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation.

Since its original inception the Foundation has granted more than $3-million, on behalf of the Ontario REALTORS® to shelter-based organizations across the province.
