Supporter spotlight: Alberta Real Estate Foundation

Working with organizations such as the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, Y2Y is able to continually engage with the community to make positive impacts through conservation.

The Alberta Real Estate Foundation (AREF) has been a long-time supporter of Y2Y.

Recently their help has been instrumental in allowing us to advance the Love Your Headwaters campaign to protect Alberta’s critical water sources. The foundation recognizes the importance of conservation for all Albertans, including home and landowners.

“When it comes to headwaters, we all live downstream, therefore we all benefit from these headwaters being protected,” says Sarah Stuebing, communications and community investment manager for AREF.

Sarah says a key reason AREF supports Y2Y is our collaborative approach to conservation and desire to include partners and the community.

“We have witnessed how Y2Y values stakeholder consultation and engagement. You’ve generated awareness and excitement in water and wildland stewardship,” she says.

In fact, this is a common value Y2Y and AREF share. We both believe in the importance of educating and engaging the community in order to mobilize people to action. This is a key piece of AREF’s mandate.

According to Sarah, “AREF looks to build real estate professionals' and the public’s capacity to improve land and water stewardship, planning use and management of Alberta’s diverse land base.”

Recognizing the importance of involving Albertans and communities in conserving large landscapes in the province unites AREF and Y2Y in their shared vision for conservation.

Working with organizations such as the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, Y2Y is able to continually engage with the community to make positive impacts through conservation.

We thank them for their continued support.
