Charities & Scholarships Information
The Granite State South Board of REALTORS is involved in several charities benefiting the southern New Hampshire region. GSSBR also provides one scholarship a year to deserving, graduating high school students within our communities.
- The Dream Factory: "Making dreams come true for critically and chronically ill children." With chapters across America and over 5,000 volunteers, The Dream Factory has granted over 25,000 wishes since 1980 for critcally and chronically ill children ages three to eighteen. GSSBR works specifically with the New Hampshire chapter by hosting an annual Halloween party that raises funds to grant wishes for children across New Hampshire. To donate, volunteer, or learn more, please visit The Dream Factory.
- Hoops for Heroes: "Every shot made shall serve as a reminder of the reverence due those who have honored us with their selfless service to this country." Hoops For Heroes is a registered New Hampshire not-for-profit organization working out of Epsom, New Hampshire. The goal is to pay tribute to Veterans through financial support, specifically for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. The man behind the mission, Dave Cummings, plans to make 1,000,000 foul shots in exchange for donations, which will be donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. To date, this charity has raised over $50,000 for Veterans! To help Dave in his goal or to learn more about this charity, please visit Hoops for Heroes.
- Salvation Army: GSSBR assists the Salvation Army in many different ways, including Angel Tags and Back-To-School Backpack Tags. Each year, local families struggle to make ends meet for the back-to-school and holiday seasons. Salvation Army works with these families by providing "tags" of supply and wish lists for children of families who would otherwise be unable to provide the necessary items. To help the Salvation Army or to learn more about this organization, please visit The Salvation Army.
- Food Pantries: GSSBR donates to several food pantries throughout the southern New Hampshire area.
