The REALTORSCare® Foundation directly benefits Canadian registered charities who address shelter-based needs in communities across Ontario. Each year PKAR works with the REALTORSCare® Foundation to assess and identify the need in our community.

PKAR has selected YWCA Peterborough Haliburton as the local recipient of all 2021 fundraising through the REALTORSCare® Foundation to support their ongoing work. YWCA Peterborough Haliburton is an equity-seeking organization serving women throughout Peterborough and Haliburton County. As a member of YWCA Canada, they are part of a global movement dedicated to ending gender-based violence in all forms.

“This additional COVID-19 relief funding from PKAR truly means a great deal to us — we weren’t expecting this additional assistance,” explains YWCA Executive Director, Kim Dolan. “REALTORS understand that “home” is meant to be a place of comfort, safety and peace, which is exactly what this support will mean for women and children staying at YWCA Crossroads Shelter! Thank you again.”

Through our partnership with REALTORSCare®, PKAR has donated over $80,000.00 to local charities since 2014. Over the last 40 years the REALTORSCare® Foundation has raised more than 6 million dollars for shelter-based organizations throughout the province on behalf of the Ontario REALTORS®.
