The Alberta Real Estate Foundation’s Investment Grants support and advance education, research, law reform, and other activities related to real estate across three focus areas of Real Estate Leadership, Built Environment, and Land with up to $250,000 in funding.
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
We accept Letters of Inquiry for Investment Grants twice per year.
The following statements are examples of potential outcomes of projects supported through the Grant Programs. The Foundation welcomes projects aligned with our mandate that may not be reflected in these outcomes:
The first step is submitting a Letter of Inquiry so we can discuss whether your project fits in one of our three categories to advance the real estate industry and benefit Albertans.
Submit a Letter of Inquiry (download here) to firstname.lastname@example.org three to four weeks in advance of the grant deadline. 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.
The Foundation is committed to open, fair, and transparent processes. We welcome your feedback on our processes to help identify and reduce barriers for you, the applicant. In the spirit of continuous improvement, our team looks forward to hearing from you. Get in touch with us at email@example.com.
