Most will gift pearls to celebrate their 30-year anniversary, but CREB®'s Charitable Foundation is going the more practical route with a gift of $300,000 to support local non-profits through its Investing in HOPE program.

"Our 30-year legacy has helped numerous charities and with this being one of our biggest funding initiatives ever, we're about to be a part of something incredibly impactful for local families and the community."
