Disaster Relief Fund

Purpose

The Georgia Association of REALTORS®’ (GAR) Disaster Relief Fund is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was established to assist Georgia REALTORS® who have lost their home, their office, their ability to pay for their home and/or their livelihood through a natural disaster. Since 2008, more than $100,000 has been distributed to REALTORS® across the state who met the criteria for fund disbursement.
