NAR’s annual Good Neighbor Awards recognizes Realtors who “made an extraordinary impact in their communities.” Five winners will receive a $10K grant.
CHICAGO – The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) is now accepting applications for its 2023 Good Neighbor Awards. The annual program recognizes Realtors® who have made an extraordinary impact in their communities through volunteer service.
Five winners will each receive a $10,000 grant for their nonprofit organization and be recognized in November during NAR NXT, The Realtor Experience in Anaheim, California. Five honorable mentions will each receive a $2,500 grant.
“The Good Neighbor Awards program is a testament to the unwavering commitment of our members who give back to their communities,” says NAR President Kenny Parcell. “We are proud to recognize and support these outstanding individuals as they work tirelessly to improve the lives of those around them.”
A recent NAR report found that roughly two out of three Realtors (66%) volunteered monthly, spending an average of eight hours each month.
Since 2000, the Good Neighbor Awards program has donated $1.4 million to Realtor-led nonprofits around the country. The awards program is supported by primary sponsor, Realtor.com and receives additional support from the Center for Realtor Development.
Good Neighbor Award entries must be received by April 19, 2023.
To be eligible, nominees must be an NAR member in good standing and should have made a significant impact as a volunteer for a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Nominees are chosen for the award based on their community impact through volunteer work.
