As REALTORS®, we have dedicated our lives to assisting thousands of Rhode Island families in obtaining the ultimate American dream of home ownership. For some families that dream is not easily obtainable. Through The REALTOR® Foundation: Rhode Island we are hoping to provide assistance to families that  need help with rent, home repair and other housing related needs. However, our commitment to giving back goes well beyond housing related initiatives. Through various financial programs, scholarships, and community activities, it is our hope to enhance the quality of life within our communities by organizing volunteers and raising funds for local charitable organizations and/or individuals in need.


Our goal at The REALTOR® Foundation: Rhode Island is to organize volunteers and raise money for both housing and non-housing related grants and charities, as well as individuals in need. We are always looking for as many hands as possible to accomplish our goals. If you want to learn more about how you can help or if you would like to volunteer your time assisting us for any of our upcoming events, please let us know.
