The Tucson REALTORS® Charitable Foundation (TRCF) has awarded $5,000 to four local non-profit organizations as part of its quarterly distribution program.  

The funds and intended use were issued to:

•  Arts Express ($1,625) to help 50 disadvantaged youth participate in its Behind the Scenes program, held in conjunction with Broadway in Tucson’s production of Beauty and the Beast in December. 

•  Habitat for Humanity ($1,500) to help fund four affordable market-quality Energy Star homes for low-income families in the Copper Vista neighborhood, just north of Tucson International Airport.  Specifically, the funds will cover concrete and underground utility work and infrastructure. 

•  Law Enforcement Wives Club ($1,375) to support their mission to enhance the lives of law enforcement personnel and their families throughout Pima County “by providing emotional and tangible support during times of need.”   

•  Dancing in the Streets ($500) to help fund costumes, dance attire, music, sets, lighting, Pointe ballet shoes and scholarships.   

TRCF is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that makes funds available to organizations from donations by its REALTOR® and Affiliate members and friends. Its mission is to enhance the community’s quality of life through financial programs, education, and housing-related initiatives and civic activities. 

Since 2011, the Foundation has distributed some $57,000, said TRCF Executive Director Philip Tedesco, who also serves as CEO of the Tucson Association of REALTORS®.  Each quarter, TRCF distributes $5,000.
