REALTORS® serving Calgary and area

The CREB® REALTOR® Community Foundation has a robust strategy that responds to community need. We maximize the potential of every contribution and stay true to what we know best – housing and shelter.

We have three grant streams to create new housing, keep people housed and improve housing quality.


legacy grant

Legacy Grants – Create new housing
CREB® Legacy Grants are the Foundation’s signature funding stream, with the goal of creating new housing options for people who need it most.

One grant between $100,000 and $1 million will be awarded as either a one-time contribution, or through a multi-year funding partnership.

To secure a legacy grant, organizations must demonstrate exceptionally strong alignment with our core community investment priorities, present a clear case for support that includes research and data driven solutions, along with projected outcomes measures for the project.


community grant

Community Grants – Keep people housed 
CREB® Community Grants support projects that keep people housed. These grants assist vulnerable populations at risk of losing housing and/or shelter. Community grants between $25,000 and $75,000 will be awarded per calendar year.

To secure a community grant, the solution strategy must include a strong connection to housing and/or shelter, and the project must clearly focus on keeping people housed.


transformation grant

Transformation Grants – Improve housing quality 
CREB® Transformation Grants revitalize existing spaces and respond to community infrastructure needs. Applications for funding will be accepted for projects up to a maximum of $10,000.

These grants support non-profit organizations that specialize in housing and shelter and who are looking to expand existing structures or make renovations/repairs to improve housing quality.
