Tuesday, December 15, 2020, turned out to be Christmas Day for a number of Boise area non-profits. Members of The Mike Brown Group and the Together We Give Foundation visited five non-profits who were nominated to receive grants from the foundation.
Voting by Mike Brown Group clients, agents, staff, and corporate contributors determined what charities received from the $100,000 grant pool. Funds were raised through a variety of means: a donation was made for every transaction represented by a Mike Brown Group REALTOR®; Movement Mortgage and Todd Shreeve contributed for every Mike Brown Group transaction they were a part of; Biltmore Co. and Todd Campbell Custom Homes also donated funds to the cause.
