Manitoba Real Estate Association (MREA) Shelter Foundation Award

The MREA Shelter Foundation Award, created by REALTORS® in Manitoba, recognizes volunteers who are deeply committed to supporting shelter-related causes. Manitoba REALTORS® recognize that shelter is a vital component of our communities and understand that structured fundraising and philanthropy are beneficial to community development. Therefore, the Manitoba Real Estate Association Shelter Foundation Award was created to recognize the vital contributions volunteers make to support non-profits and charities that are devoted to shelter-related causes.

The MREA Shelter Foundation Award is presented to an individual, or group, at the Volunteer Manitoba Annual Awards Dinner. The award includes a $2,500 donation to be given to the award recipient's charity of choice.

Every year in this province Manitoba REALTORS® work side by side with other volunteers who donate their time, money and passion to improving the quality of life of Manitobans. As volunteers, Manitoba REALTORS® have coached kids' soccer teams, prepared meals for the homeless, and raised money for women's shelters. Year after year, Manitoba REALTORS® are honoured to volunteer alongside people from all walks of life who care deeply about the future of our communities and who work hard to support shelter services in our neighbourhoods.
