What is the Foundation?
The Ohio REALTORS Charitable and Educational Fund was established by action of the Board of Trustees in 1980, and subsequently was given non-profit status by the Internal Revenue Service. The purpose of the fund is the establishment of scholarships for students actively pursuing at minimum a Bachelor’s degree in real estate at Ohio’s colleges or universities.
The fund is set-up as an endowment to permit the Trustees of the Fund to offer the interest from the principal for scholarships.
Under normal circumstances, a gift to The Ohio REALTORS Charitable and Educational Fund does not cost the donor as much as the foundation receives, whether the donor gives from income or capital.
