(Nov. 1, 2019) The Coastal Association of Realtors has awarded $9,200 in grants to local charities through the Coastal Realtors Foundation.

The following organizations received grants in the Coastal Realtors Foundation’s latest round of funding:

Art League of Ocean City, Coastal Hospice, The Cricket Center, Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District, Crisfield Volunteer Fire Department, The Grace Center, Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore, Wicomico Child Advocacy Center, Wicomico Environmental Trust, Worcester County Veterans Memorial at Ocean Pines, Wyatt’s Warriors Foundation and Young Life Salisbury.

The Coastal Realtors Foundation is a charitable fund held by the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore.

The association raises money for the fund through an annual charity golf tournament as well as other efforts throughout the year.

The fund is accessible to members of Coastal through an application process administered by the association and reviewed by a committee of members.

Grant recipients must be 501(c)3 organizations and must be located in Somerset, Wicomico, or Worcester counties.

“We are so grateful for all the support we are receiving for the Coastal Realtors Foundation,” said President Bernie Flax. “We just received a $9,000 award from the Maryland Realtors and our annual golf tournament just raised $11,500 for the foundation. This money will help a lot of people on the Lower Eastern Shore.”

Applications are accepted quarterly, and the next deadline is Nov. 15.
