About Investment Grants

The Foundation’s Investment Grant program supports and advances education, research, law reform, and other activities related to real estate across our three focus areas of Real Estate Leadership, Built Environment, and Land. This funding pathway is for initiatives seeking over $25,000 and up to $250,000.


Investment Grants are open to real estate industry organizations, post-secondary institutions, nonprofits, charities, and local and regional governments.

Mandate and Focus Areas

Under the Real Estate Act, the Foundation’s mandate 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.

Our grantmaking contributes to positive impacts across the Focus Areas of:

  • Real Estate Leadership
  • Built Environment
  • Land

Under each Focus Area, you will find outcome statements that help guide our grantmaking. The outcome statements reflect our responsibility to our mandate, and to what we hear is needed in the industry from you, our stakeholders.

How to apply

The first step is to submit a Letter of Inquiry to inquiries@aref.ab.ca.
