MREA Shelter Foundation was built on the belief that shelter is a human right. It is owned by every REALTOR® in Manitoba and donations are received through volunteer efforts and events including WinnipegREALTORS® Gimme Shelter, the annual MREA President’s Charity Golf Classic, Instant Wine Cellar, and the annual MREA Shelter Foundation Fishing Derby. REALTORS® also give through the Close a Sale, Open a Door campaign and one-time gifts.
Chair Roger Burns is challenging every broker office and REALTOR® in Manitoba to join the campaign and donate $10 from every house or property sold throughout 2015.
