Annual Grants

The Foundation grant cycle is closed for 2018. Please check back in late 2019 for our next cycle.

The mission of the REALTORS® Community Foundation is to improve the quality of life in the Boise region through housing-related projects and grants. Monies for these grants are raised via voluntary contributions and fundraising efforts, like the annual Give Back Golf Tournament.
