Boise Regional REALTORS® Foundation Grant Application is Open

The Boise Regional REALTORS® Foundation will be accepting grant applications for its annual competitive grant cycle beginning Tuesday, August 15, 2017, through Friday, September 15, 2017. In 2016, the BRR Foundation awarded nine grants totaling more than $25,000.

The mission of the BRR Foundation is to improve the quality of life in the Boise region through housing-related projects and grants. The two largest fundraisers include the Give-Back Golf Tournament and online auction. Funds for grants are raised throughout the year by BRR members — local real estate professionals giving back to our community.

“The BRR Foundation board is pleased to offer grant opportunities to local organizations making an impact in our community,” said Cyndi Elliot, 2017 BRR Foundation President, and REALTOR® with Group One Sotheby’s International Realty. “By supporting these nonprofits with grants, we are able to make a tangible difference by addressing housing-related and neighborhood needs.”

Since its inception in 1995, the BRR Foundation has provided over $1.7 million in grants to qualifying nonprofit organizations throughout Ada County. Past grant recipients include Boise Fire Fighters Local 149, Boise Rescue Mission, Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity, Charitable Assistance To Community’s Homeless (CATCH), Giraffe Laugh Early Learning Centers, Good Samaritan Home, Life’s Kitchen, NeighborWorks®, The Salvation Army, and the Women’s & Children’s Alliance. The BRR Foundation also offers a matching gifts program for member contributions to local nonprofits.
