Q1 2018 Foundation News


The REALTORS® Community Foundation kicked off 2018 in high-gear — by introducing a voluntary foundation contribution option on the 2018 BRR dues billing, we started the year with about $9,000 to support the 2018 grant cycle. Thank you to everyone who donated!

In 2017, the Foundation granted $30,000 to local nonprofits, and almost $5,000 additional matching gifts were made to local nonprofits.  Our 2018 Foundation President, Kim Daley, has a lofty – yet achievable – goal for us this year: raise $50,000 to give back to the community! Don’t worry, there are lots of ways you can help!

Where did the Online Auction go?

Do you have an item you would like to donate? We’d love to have it! Send us a donation form so we can include it in the auction.

Service Projects and Volunteer Opportunities

Independent Brokers Council

The REALTOR® Outreach Committee is working on coordinating service projects and volunteer opportunities. We will be participating in Paint the Town through NeighborWorks again this year, partnering teams to paint five houses. Paint the Town is Saturday, June 9th, though most of the work will be completed the week before. Let Shari Fernandez know if you or your office would like to participate.

That’s all awesome, but what’s with the new foundation name?

Hopefully, you’ve noticed that the Boise Regional REALTORS® Foundation is now the REALTORS® Community Foundation. We have the same mission: to improve the quality of life in the Boise Region through housing-related projects and grants. We are still real estate professionals giving back to our community.

 When Boise Regional REALTORS® (BRR) merged with the Emmett Valley Association of REALTORS® at the end of 2017, the jurisdiction of the foundation increased to include Gem County. With the more than 4,400 BRR members located all throughout the Boise Region, we needed our name to better represent how REALTORS® are positively impacting our community through our 501(c)(3) foundation.
