Missouri REALTORS® are not only real estate professionals – we're so much more. We're active in the community – serving on school boards, in elected positions and volunteering our time to make communities where we work a better place to be. We're educators – serving on panels and facilitating industry discussions. The philanthropic efforts of our members are inspiring and the difference they are making within their communities is significant. Our Member Spotlight series highlights these efforts and introduces some of our wonderful members.
This month, we are shining the Member Spotlight on Nancy Gratz.
Nancy Gratz, REALTOR® with Gratz Real Estate and a member of the Jefferson City Area Board of REALTORS®, is passionate about giving back to her beloved community. Through volunteer work, Nancy has served thousands of people with her kind heart and positive attitude.
Nancy is constantly giving back to Jefferson City, contributing to organizations such as the Community Breast Cancer Project, Boost BBQ and the 4-H Foundation. But the nonprofit she is most involved with is the United Way of Central Missouri, where she has been volunteering for 37 years.
With the United Way of Central Missouri, Nancy has served as the Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the board, as well as on numerous committees and campaigns. She is also a lifetime member of the Board of Trustees. In the past year alone, she has volunteered more than 140 hours of her own time to the organization.
“Nancy was a member of the 2016 Campaign Leadership Team and was instrumental in helping the United Way exceed our campaign goal by raising over $1.92 million,” said Ann Bax, President of the United Way of Central Missouri. “Nancy is truly a blessing to our community.”
The United Way of Central Missouri is a volunteer-driven organization that serves more than 25 different charities and organizations, impacting 80,000 people a year.
Nancy was a 2017 Missouri REALTORS® Good Neighbor Award nominee.
