We are proud to support grassroots charities in the Edmonton area that alleviate homelessness and hunger, provide shelter, prevent crime and meet clients' needs through special projects. We consider charity size, alternate funding and resources, financial management, and potential project outcomes as well as alignment to our funding priorities. Ultimately, it is our goal through funding, to build thriving communities by empowering with the opportunities needed to live a fulfilled and meaningful life.
The Board of Governors has developed a funding plan that sees a majority of funding being determined through our funding applications received by our annual November 30th deadline and dispersed early in the calendar year. If you are a charity seeking funding, we encourage you to apply, or reach out for more information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Board of Governors is incredibly proud of the REALTOR® Community for their contributions that made it possible to give $255,000 to Edmonton area charities last year! - As a result 29 recipients were able to fuel their important work.
We are visiting our charities individually to get the scoop on the work they are doing - check out our stories tab to learn more about the ones we've visited so far!
