CREB Charitable Foundation accepting funding applications from local charities

The deadline  for charities to apply for this year’s Governors’ Grants in March 31.

The CREB Charitable Foundation’s Governors’ Grants program awards funds to charities that support housing and shelter-related initiatives in the Calgary and area community.

“We’re excited to invite charities to apply for the Charitable Foundation’s Governors’ Grants,” said Jeffrey Mikolajow, Charitable Foundation president. “The Governors’ Grants program reflects our vision of helping to build self-sustaining communities and empowers REALTORS to serve and give back to the community.”

In its third consecutive year, the program will award $100,000 worth of grants on behalf of CREBs membership of more than 5,000 REALTORS and community members.

“The selection process is difficult because we receive so many great applications,” said Mikolajow. “But, it’s an honour and rewarding experience to support the charities that mean the most to our members and the incredible work they do in our community.”
