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 will now donate a portion of the revenue from the Awards event to fund their University Scholarship Program to support and encourage the next generation of real estate professionals. The first group of scholarship winners will be announced in the Fall of 2015.
