Association of Progressive Rental Organizations | America’s Champion for Rent-to-Own

About The Foundation

The APRO Charitable Foundation consists of two funds: the RTO [Relief To Our] Employees Disaster Relief Fund and the APRO Scholarship Fund.

RTO [Relief to Our] Employees Disaster Relief Fund

In 2005, APRO members contributed more than $190,000 to help rent-to-own employees recover from the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The RTO community helped 159 employees get through and come back from these catastrophic natural disasters. Unfortunately, natural disasters have become all too common; we don’t know when or where the next one will happen, but we have learned that a quick response is vital.

Therefore, APRO established the RTO [Relief To Our] Employees Disaster Relief Fund — to combat any natural disaster affecting our rent-to-own family.

APRO Scholarship Fund

For more than a decade, the APRO Charitable Foundation has provided annual scholarships to rent-to-own professionals and their families. APRO members have generously contributed to the APRO Scholarship Fund to help students connected with RTO pursue their college degrees.

The APRO Charitable Foundation efforts are a wonderful way to make a difference for our rent-to-own family. Please take a few minutes to explore these pages.
