GHAR Foundation

About the GHAR Foundation

The Foundation was established at the request of the membership – the idea for the Foundation came from the strategic planning session in 2011 – members wanted a 501(c)(3) corporation that could accept tax deductible contributions in order to set up charitable donations to individual GHAR fundraisers.

The Foundation formalizes the charitable efforts of the Association – in the past, GHAR has given tens of thousands of dollars to numerous charity organizations and the Foundation is the natural progression of that tradition.

The Foundation is not GHAR – the Greater Hartford Association of REALTORS® Foundation, Inc. was established in February 2011 as a separate entity, independent of GHAR with a separate Board of Trustees.

GHAR Bridge Committee Scholarship

In an effort to ease the financial burden of a new REALTOR® member just starting in the business, the GHAR Bridge Committee has recently created the GHAR Bridge Committee Scholarship. Scholarships are based on a one-time reimbursement of REALTOR® fees paid (exclusive of licensing) and will be awarded to a newly licensed agent within 6 months to 2 years of application. To be considered for a Bridge Committee Scholarship, submit the following information and documentation when applying.
