SEVRAR's Critical Needs Fund

The Critical Needs Fund is the heart of SEVRAR and is devoted toward assisting members who have undergone hardships or tragedies in their lives. Donations are made by SEVRAR members to assist such hardships and tragedies like auto and motorcycle accidents, health crisis, or tragedies that would prevent a member from working or being able to support his or her family. It is a Fund built on the simple notion of serving a higher purpose of business through charitable giving in the communities where our members live and work.

WHY IS THE CRITICAL NEEDS FUND SO VITAL?

Catastrophic/Emergency situations are defined as a tragedy, disaster, and/or a misfortune that would prevent a member from working or being able to support their family. An extraordinary challenge is an unforeseen and/or unpredictable occurrence that is not of a reoccurring nature. The SEVRAR Critical Needs Fund assists certain unforeseen tragedies such as:

  • Medical Cost
  • Insurance Policy Payments
  • Medical Treatments
  • Medical Conditions
  • Emergency Transportation
  • At-Home Assistance - Meals
  • Housekeeping
  • In-Home Daycare
  • Mortgage payments
  • Death Expenses - Funeral Payments 

Where Does the Money Go?

During the Period of 2012-2016:

  • We have monetarily helped more than 35 members during a time of crisis
  • Provided more than $92,018.67 in donations


WORDS OF GRATITUDE

"... My son, Oliver, was in a motorcycle accident where he suffered a severe, traumatic brain injury. The medical staff did not expect him to survive. I cannot begin to tell you what a blessing the finds were to our family." - Oliver's Story 
"... We lost our older daughter to an overdose. We had depleted our savings trying to save Alishia in rehabilitation. Through the Critical Needs Foundation, we were able to take care of the final preparations. It was a wonderful resource." - Alishia's Story


"... Determined that it was a Chondrosarcomo (cancerous tumor in the top of my fibula that was expanding). I honestly do not know what would have happened to my home, car, and my insurance without the help of the Critical Needs Foundation." - Rob's Story 
"... It is a heart-wrenching thing to lose a child ... the critical needs program was highly valuable for my husband, Paul, and I as agents. It allowed us to know that our Association and fellow REALTORS care when we are going through something tough in life. I am forever indebted to SEVRAR and this program for helping us get through this very difficult time in our lives, the loss of our precious son Philip." - Philip's Story
