REFA is committed to giving back to the community and annually, REFA gives back in the following ways:
REFA Charitable Golf Tournament:
The REFA Charitable Golf Tournament is an annual fundraiser committed to raising funds on behalf of two local charities whose missions are aligned with providing, creating or offering housing solutions to those in need. The Annual Golf Tournament is held in July and over 100 members from the Real Estate finance industry participate in the tournament. Since its inception in 2007, the tournament has donated over $120K to local charities.
To thank speakers for participating in REFA events, REFA makes a donation on their behalf to HomeStart. In 2014, REFA donated $1500 to Homestart on behalf of the 27 speakers who presented at REFA programs.
Emerging Leaders Community Service Activities
The Emerging Leaders Committee participates in quarterly community service activities, including Greater Boston Food Bank, Crossroads for Kids, and Rosie's Place.
Annual Holiday Reception Toy Drive
Annually, the REFA Holiday Reception hosts a toy drive to raise donations for FamilyAid Boston.
