Hand Placing Heart in Another Hand

The MAAR Benevolent Fund relies entirely on donations to exist and provide financial assistance to MAAR members. There are several ways you can contribute to the MAAR Benevolent Fund and directly impact a colleague's life. Remember, it’s a hand up, not a handout!

Kroger Plus Card

Each time you shop at Kroger and present your Plus Card for discounts, Kroger will donate a portion of your purchase to the Benevolent Fund. It does not cost you anything and it does not affect your gas points. What could be easier than that?

Follow these steps to link your card:

  1. Go to kroger.com and sign in or create an account.
  2. Click on “My Account.”
  3. Click on “Community Rewards.”
  4. Click “Enroll.”
  5. Enter “80923” under “Find an Organization.”
  6. Click “Enroll.”
  7. Go shopping!
With each use of your Plus Card, you’ll be helping a MAAR member in need—without having to think about it!


Similar to Kroger Plus Rewards, AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support the Benevolent Fund every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate to the Benevolent Fund—no strings attached.

Follow these steps to choose the Benevolent Fund as your supported charity:

  1. Go to smile.amazon.com and sign in or create an account.
  2. If it is your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization. If you already have an account and would like to change your charitable organization, click on “Your Account” and select the option “Change Charity.”
  3. In the search area under “Pick Your Own Charitable Organization" enter “Memphis Realtors Benevolent Fund.”
  4. Click “Select.”
  5. Go shopping!
Each time you make an eligible purchase on AmazonSmile, a portion of your purchase will be donated to the Benevolent Fund, with no further action required on your part! Remember, only purchases at smile.amazon.com—not amazon.com or the mobile app—support the Benevolent Fund.

Fundraising Events

The MAAR Benevolent Fund Fundraising Committee plans and hosts fundraising events throughout the year. These events include Benevolent Fund Bingo, held twice a year in the spring and fall, and Butts for Benevolence, a Boston butts order drive. All of the proceeds from these events benefit the MAAR Benevolent Fund. Additionally, members may bid on items for auction at various events held by other committees and chapters throughout the year.
