At the beginning of 2020, Virginia REALTORS® President Kemper Funkhouser set an ambitious goal of raising $1.25 million for the REALTORS® Political Action Committee.
Of course, at the start of the year, no one knew what 2020 would bring. And like you and your agents, we’ve all had to adjust and adapt to new realities. Despite the obstacles, the REALTOR® family stepped up—as usual—and performed remarkably well.
To date, we have raised a total of about $875,000 for RPAC, but we’re still short of our goal.
That’s where you come in.
Can we count on you to help us reach our goal in these final two months?
If you haven’t given, take a minute to chip in at least $15 today. If you have given, we thank you for your support and ask you to consider contributing a little more. Could you also encourage your agents to participate with at least a $15 contribution as well?
Legislatively, 2021 will be a huge year for Virginia REALTORS®, and your support of RPAC will be critical.
With three statewide offices, all 100 members of the House of Delegates, and numerous local government offices up for grabs in the 2021 elections, RPAC needs resources to get REALTOR®-friendly candidates elected.
Your support of RPAC helps us fight for a regulatory environment that enables your business to thrive, even in the midst of a pandemic.
Your support of RPAC helps us defend against the threat of higher taxes that hurt people’s ability to buy and sell property.
Your support of RPAC helps us push for policies and resources that allow housing providers and property managers to provide stable housing for Virginia families.
