(June 28, 2019) The Coastal Association of Realtors has awarded $7,000 in grants to local charities through the Coastal Realtors Foundation.

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

Atlantic General Hospital Foundation – Campaign for the Future; Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County; Hope 4 Recovery; Life Crisis Center; Parsonsburg Volunteer Fire Department; The Cricket Center and Worcester Youth & Family Counseling Services.

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 started this fund last year as a way to support the charitable causes that are important to our members,” said President Bernie Flax. “Coastal strives to support its members in every capacity, and now that includes assisting in their charitable activities and volunteer work. The members tell the association which local organizations they are supporting, and we help boost their efforts with this fund.”

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