Who would you nominate?

Invest in your community                
by CREB Charitable Foundation on Sep 11, 2015

In a few short months, 15 different organizations will receive a generous donation on behalf of Calgary and area REALTORS®. Which local causes will be celebrated? It’s up to you to decide.

As a CREB® member, you can be part of the decision-making process by nominating your favorite organization for a $10,000 grant with CREB® Charitable Foundation’s Investing in Hope program.

Nominees are categorized into one of the following areas:

  • Enhancement:    Initiatives that enhance or provide sustainability in a community;
  • Shelter: Programs    that support affordable housing and/or shelter-related initiatives; and
  • Care: Initiatives    that provide support or access for individuals or families struggling to    meet basic needs.

The nomination period is now open, and will come to a close at 12 p.m., Sept. 30. Once nominations are processed, CREB® members can vote for their favourite organizations through an online voting process. Voting runs from 12 p.m., Oct. 8 to 12 p.m., Oct. 22.


This year, every vote counts as members will only have three total votes for the entire campaign. Friends of the Foundation receive double the voting power, or six total votes.


So what are you waiting for? Visit the Investing in Hope website for more information and nominate an organization today.
