Scholarship Application Deadline: April 12th

2019 Raymond F. Gates, Jr. Memorial Scholarship applications are now available online.  If you have a child/stepchild who is a high school senior or full-time college/graduate student with at least 1 year left to complete and you have been an active CT REALTOR® member since April 12, 2018 – he/she is eligible to apply.  A few important things to note:

  • Grandchildren are NOT eligible to apply.
  • When creating an account/filling out the application online – the account and application must be in the name of the STUDENT, not the parent.
  • If you have previously created an online account, you do not need to create a new account - you can use your existing account to apply again this year.

Be Homeful Campaign Raised $80,000!

Thanks to the incredibly generous support of CT REALTORS® across the State, we are happy to report that the CTR Foundation’s 2018 “be homeful for the holidays” campaign was a huge success – our best year yet - raising over $80,000 to help end family homelessness in Connecticut and providing a plush Paddington bear/book or blankie/book to every child living in a shelter over the Holidays. Thank you to all who contributed, we could not have done it without you!
