Realtors Community Foundation grants more than $25,000 to Ada County nonprofits

The Boise Regional Realtors Community Foundation awarded nine Ada County nonprofit organizations with grants worth more than $25,000 through its annual competitive grant cycle. Funds for grants are raised throughout the year by members of BRR. The two largest fundraisers include the Give-Back Charity Golf Tournament and an online auction at the annual Circle of Excellence Awards Gala.

The objective of the Foundation is to support projects and programs in Ada County that transform the lives of the people in the neighborhoods in which BRR serves, with special consideration given to projects and programs focused on housing.
