Philanthropy

CREW Chicago seeks to make a lasting, positive impact on our local community, far beyond the commercial real estate industry. CREW Chicago members contribute their time and effort to our collective philanthropic efforts:

  • CREW Careers: Through an interactive, multi-week program, CREW Chicago members introduce teenage girls from organizations such as the Off the Street Club in Chicago’s West Garfield Park neighborhood to careers in the commercial real estate industry.  

  • CREW Chicago Scholarships: CREW Chicago annually awards up to three scholarships, each in an amount not to exceed $3,000, for graduate and undergraduate students majoring or concentrating in real estate, construction, facility management, architecture, urban planning, real estate law, land economics, real estate appraisal or related real estate fields.  

  • Habitat for Humanity Women Build: CREW Chicago members form a team as part of over 300 women who join together for one week each year to help fund and build the home of a female-led Habitat Chicago family.  

 

CREW Network Foundation

CREW Network Foundation, the philanthropic arm of CREW Network, is the only charitable foundation solely dedicated to advancing women in the commercial real estate industry.
