NOTE: We are currently accepting applications for 2017. The deadline for submmissions will be June 15, 2017.
We applaud and recognize the immense dedication of those organizations and programs currently working to reduce the impact of homelessness in our community. The Domus Fund was created in 2011 to support those organizations and programs, or upstart charities with similar goals – in particular, those with fresh ideas and/or innovative approaches.
The fund is made up entirely of donations from our agents, who contribute a set amount from each of their commissions. Since its inception we have awarded $140,000. If your organization might be eligible, please send us an application.
