Support affordable housing; win a fully loaded 2003 Envoy

SUMMIT COUNTY – The Colorado Association of Realtors Housing Opportunity Foundation (CARHOF) is sponsoring a raffle to raise money for affordable housing.

CARHOF hopes to raise $400,000 statewide by selling 4,000 tickets for $100 each. For every dollar raised, the Sturm Financial Foundation, a philanthropy of Sturm banks throughout Colorado, will donate 50 cents to CARHOF – up to $150,000.

“The odds of winning are better than the lotto,” said Scott Matthias, CARHOF president. “The huge benefit to buying a chance to win a fully loaded 2003 Envoy will be to help our heroes – the policemen, the firemen and our teachers – with their housing needs.”

CARHOF, a charitable 501(c)3 foundation, collects interest from earnest money held in home purchases.

Brokers cannot earn interest on real estate trust accounts, but with CARHOF, the interest can be gathered and made available as grants aiding affordable housing programs, crisis shelters and other housing-related projects.

Since 1990, CARHOF has donated more than $3.4 million to housing programs in Colorado. To be eligible for CARHOF grants, organizations must be based in Colorado, have housing-related missions and be public agencies or nonprofit agencies with 501(c)3 status.

To purchase your chance to win, call Butch Elich, CARHOF director in Summit County at (800) 806-9518 or (970) 389-4005.

CARHOF is part of the Colorado Association of Realtors, the largest real estate trade association in the state, representing more than 20,000 members.
