Foundation

Our mission is to improve lives and strengthen our community. The Pinellas Realtor® Foundation works with charities that promote a hands-up/helping hand attitude, and, along with the Affiliate Business Partners, provide scholarships for PRO members that relieve the financial burden of taking designation and certification courses.

Here are some local organizations the Foundation has recently supported:

  • All Children’s Hospital
  • Children’s Miracle Network
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Pinellas County Opportunity Council
  • Ronald McDonald House

 The Foundation also supports our members’ community involvement through the Good Neighbor Award. Each September at least 5 members are honored with this award and a $1,000 grant for the charity of their choice. Some of the organizations we’ve supported through this award program are:

  • Babycycle Diaper Bank
  • Bright Community Trust
  • Clearwater Jazz Holiday Foundation
  • Community Action Stops Abuse (CASA)
  • F.E.A.S.T. Food Pantry
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
  • Shadow Serenity
  • St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen
  • The Kimberly Home
