The Community Benefit Raffle and Auction is an annual event that is conducted by the Community Outreach Committee of the Eastern Connecticut Association of REALTORS® Charitable and Education Fund that is attended by REALTOR® members and Affiliates of the Association. Features of the event include the drawing for major prizes from raffle tickets, a silent and live auction and a 50/50 raffle.

The Committee extends an invitation to any local charity to request funding for a specific dollar amount for a specific use. Interested organizations should complete the application above.

Requests must be submitted no later than December 31 to be considered. The Community Outreach Committee will review all requests and vote on the submissions at their September meeting and choose recipients. The recipients will be contacted and notified on or by February 28.

The early deadline is due to the need to include recipients of the funding on raffle tickets. This information must be included on a Department of Special Revenue permit that is required to conduct the raffle.

Eastern Connecticut Association of REALTORS® Charitable and Education Fund is a not for profit 501 (c) 3 corporation that is wholly owned by the Eastern Connecticut Association of REALTORS®. Donations to the fund are, therefore, tax deductible.
