Realtors Housing Opportunities Fund
The Realtors® Housing Opportunities Fund (RHOF) is an endowed fund created by the Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS® supporting non-profit organizations to make a positive difference in the local community. RHOF’s giving mission is three-pronged: the repair or rehabilitation of low-to-moderate income housing, creation of new affordable housing, and education to encourage responsible homeownership.
The Fund is administered by the Coastal Community Foundation and since its inception, RHOF has provided OVER $1 million in funding to Lowcountry nonprofits.
