Giving Back to the Community and the Real Estate Profession

The NAIOP Chicago Awards for Excellence has a long history of supporting charitable causes in addition to promoting recognition of the real estate industry.  From 1987-2001, NAIOP Chicago partnered with Habitat for Humanity (HFH) and donated over $350,000 to their efforts in the Chicagoland area.

From 2003-2013, NAIOP Chicago partnered with Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to raise more than $250,000 to enhance and expand their programs for children and families. 

In 2014, NAIOP Chicago launched their University Initiative and now donates a portion of the revenue from the Awards event to fund our University Scholarship Program, which supports and encourages the next generation of real estate professionals.  Read more.
