The Fraser Valley Realtors Charitable Foundation (FVRCF) commends Chris Shields and Rob Christensen for contributing countless hours serving as volunteers for the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB).


First to sign up for Donate per Deal


FVRCF launched Donate per Deal, a new fundraising initiative, and Shields and Christensen were the first realtors to sign up.

The program allows realtors to have a donation deducted from every real estate transaction or “deal” they make. Donations are collected by their offices and submitted directly to the FVRCF.

“Realtors are incredibly generous, but they’re also very busy and their income can fluctuate greatly from month to month. Donate per Deal allows a Fraser Valley realtor to easily make a regular contribution to their foundation,” says Chris Hodson, executive director of the FVRCF.


Fraser Valley realtors encouraged to talk to their managing broker


Shields is a past president of the FVREB and chairs the board development committee, while Christensen is a current FVREB director and, since 2019, has been teaching the new member orientation course for new realtors. FVREB also reports that the pair give back to several community organizations, particularly for youth.

“We encourage FVREB members to do whatever they can in support of the FVRCF,” Shields and Christensen express. “Ask your managing broker about how you and your office can support the Donate per Deal program, volunteer and get involved.”

As a symbol of thanks, all realtors who sign up for the program receive a real estate sign rider from the FVRCF.
