“We’ve been excited to make a difference through grants in past years that have an impact to the greater communities. We’re excited to support Great River Greening, Project for Pride in Living and The Sanneh Foundation this year,” said Man Huynh, president of SPAAR’s REALTORS® Charitable Foundation. “Great things happen when Realtors® get involved in their communities.”
REALTORS® Charitable Foundation granted $100,000 among the three recipients for their commitment to community improvement. The designated funds of the grant program support one or more key focus areas of the Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS® including advocacy, community engagement, professional development and communications, also known as the four pillars of SPAAR, intended to help create Better Agents and Better Communities.
