The Homer Foundation

All proceeds from this year’s Fun Run/Walk will go to benefit The Homer Foundation. Make sure to select “Fun Run/Walk Registration” when you register for the Alaska REALTORS® Convention online to participate and get your t-shirt!

Founded in July 1991 as Alaska’s first community foundation, the Homer Foundation serves area nonprofits and worthy projects that enhance the lives of people in our service area.

Started by a few committed visionary volunteers with a little seed money, we have grown to a professionally staffed organization with a dedicated board of trustees encouraging philanthropy and over-seeing grants supporting nonprofits on the southern Kenai Peninsula from Ninilcik to Nanwalek.

To date we have given out over $3.6 million in grants and scholarships supporting youth, education, basic needs like hunger and homelessness, sports clubs, arts of all types and environment and conservation efforts.

She is the 2021 Chair of the NAR Leadership Academy and served as the 2020 President of the RI Association of Realtors. Shannon has overseen thousands of transactions in her management life and she has coached hundreds of agents around the country and beyond. She lives for new ideas and leaves absolutely nothing on the table. Shannon was born and raised on Cape Cod and has lived in Newport, RI since 1994.

They spend as much time as possible on the water and combing the shores of New England with their blended family.
