REALTOR Foundation of Iowa (RFI) Auction

Donate an Item

We are hoping to put 15-20 items in the online auction opening mid-August and up to 30 items in the live auction on September 12th at the Scheman Building during the Convention. A silent auction will be held at Convention as well for smaller items.



The Foundation can't give money to help families in need, keep kids in school, help supply food pantries, continue Project Jack Grants, etc. without your help. We have had so many "thank you's" from teachers and participants of Project Jack for helping teach lessons of compassion, empathy, caring, and kindness to children across Iowa. 

 With your support, we can continue to do good and grow our communities. 

The REALTOR® Foundation of Iowa supports causes and organizations across Iowa in various ways.

How is the Foundation funded? 

RFI is funded in a number of ways - mostly by Realtors® from across the state of Iowa.
