Subject: [Designees] CCIM Supports RealtorR Katrina Relief Efforts

Dear CCIM Member:

The devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina to the
Gulf Coast has prompted CCIM Institute to contribute $15,000 to a special fund established by the National Association of Realtors® to provide emergency relief to hurricane victims.


The donation will support Realtor contributions to state associations in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi that have disaster relief operations in place.


Television images and news reports show catastrophic damage to New Orleans, Biloxi and other communities along the Gulf Coast.  It will take months – if not years – for survivors to return to some form of normalcy.  The leadership of CCIM Institute wholeheartedly encourages all members to contribute what you can to the Realtor fund.


Please visit this web site:

Contributions made online at's site are secure and powered by NAR's e- commerce system.


Or, you can contribute via mail at:
REALTORS® Relief Foundation
Attn: NAR Finance Division
430 N. Michigan Ave.
Chicago IL 60611.

Checks should be made payable to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation.  Contributions to REALTORS® Relief Foundation are tax deductible.


On a related note, many of our Designees and Candidate members – in the south and elsewhere – have second homes and/or open office space.  Another way to help fellow members is to offer living accommodations and office space.  This truly would be a way to help members keep their businesses operational.  Contact your local Chapter or colleagues directly and offer help. 

Your help – with a cash donation or accommodations – will truly be appreciated by people who already have lost so much.
