The REALTORS® Community Foundation (RCF) is seeking individuals to join the Board of Governors for a three-year term beginning in October of 2020. The RCF has granted nearly $4.5 million to local charities thanks to the generous volunteerism and dollars of Edmonton and Area REALTORS® since 1986.
As we continue to grow our impact, we are seeking Board members who will share our dedication to community investment while adding value with experience in board governance, financial planning, fundraising and digital marketing. We look forward to hearing from you and welcome any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
