The Burbank Association of REALTORS® (BAOR) has been involved in community work for decades. It was 1987 when board members Jim Paul, Chuck Boecher, John Kennedy and Executive Officer Jack Thorpe were having dinner at a C.A.R. convention when the discussion started that the BAOR should have a charitable arm for the Association. It was the suggestion by Jim Paul to create a non-profit that can focus on fundraising for scholarships for our local schools under the BAOR Corporation while giving legitimacy to the donations under the IRS tax code as a registered 501 (c.) 3 corporation.

Over the following months the Community Service Foundation (CSF) was created with full non-profit status. The first fundraising event was an art auction held at the Association Hall and $500 was raised. Thanks to these founders, of the BAOR Community Service Foundation, today our REALTOR® members contribute thousands of dollars to a wide range of causes and scholarships within the City of Burbank.
