30th Anniversary Legacy Grants
The Alberta Real Estate Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Legacy Grants program supports distinctive and high-impact projects which drive transformational long-term change to advance the real estate industry and real estate across Alberta. The Foundation has allocated $2M in 2021 and welcomes funding requests over $250,000 through this program.
The Alberta Real Estate Foundation was founded in 1991 by the Government of Alberta in collaboration with industry stakeholders to support and advance the real estate industry and to serve the public interest. We do this by funding real estate education, law reform, research, projects, and activities.
The Real Estate Act states that the Foundation’s purpose is to promote and undertake:
- the education of related professionals and the public in respect of the real estate industry,
- law reform and research in respect of the real estate industry, and
- other projects and activities to advance and improve the real estate industry.
See Section 64: Foundation’s Mandate
Funding will be considered for distinctive and high-impact projects which will drive transformational long-term change
to advance the real estate industry and real estate across Alberta.
The first step in getting funding for your project is to submit your Legacy Grant Letter of Inquiry and either a completed Industry Nomination form or letter of support from an industry representative. We look forward to hearing about your project!
Submit a Legacy Grant Letter of Inquiry (download here) to firstname.lastname@example.org three to four weeks in advance of the grant deadline along with a nomination from an industry representative. If your project is a fit we will be in contact to set up a call or a meeting. If projects meet the Foundation’s criteria, we will invite you to complete a full application for evaluation.
