So Cal fire relief donations matched

Coldwell Banker Half Moon Bay Broker/Manager, Robert Ross, announced in our office meeting today that Coldwell Banker NRT through Reology’s Charitable Relief Foundation (501 3c) has created the Southern California Wildfires Relief Campaign and will match donations up to $100,00, for a total relief package of $200,000.

All Coldwell Banker agents and staff are encouraged to contribute to this fund.  The three charities to receive the funds are American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, and Direct Relief International.  Here is what they are doing in these initial stages of the disaster, taken from the official notice from NRT’s President.


If you are a CB agent or staff person, please donate to this matching fund.  Non CBers can look for other matching funds or contact me to contribute to this fund.

I just read on Inman News* that the National Association of Realtors is donating $500,000 through its Realtors (r) Relief Foundation.  I don’t think these are matching funds.  If someone knows differently, please share.

San Diego real estate agent, Amy Steele, has been keeping us informed from her blog on ActiveRain.  If you are trying to reach someone in the area of these fires, try contacting Amy through her blog to see if she has additional information for you.
