CREW Network Foundation raises funds for the following programs: UCREW (university outreach), CREW Careers (high school outreach program), eMentoring, scholarships (annually providing $5,000 and $10,000 awards to young women in real estate programs), and market research. CREW Atlanta has reaped the benefits of these programs. We have consistently gained CREW members from these scholarship recipients and several of these young women have begun successful careers at local commercial real estate firms.
Our UCREW and eMentoring programs are fast becoming models for the CREW Network community. If you have participated on the CREW Atlanta Network Liaison Committee (the committee of CREW Atlanta that implements these programs) or have been a participant or volunteer, you have personally seen the benefit. We are providing a great service to our local community and personally giving back by lifting up the next generation of women in commercial real estate. Below is a list of some of the community giveback CREW Atlanta is involved in:
Atlanta Women's Foundation
Since its inception, The Atlanta Women’s Foundation (AWF) has awarded more than $12 million to over 250 nonprofit organizations impacting tens of thousands women and girls throughout metro Atlanta. Donors like CREW Atlanta made this possible.
For 20 years, CREW Atlanta has partnered with The Atlanta Women’s Foundation on behalf of Atlanta’s women and girls. Through major fundraising efforts, CREW Atlanta has contributed more than $1.3 million to AWF.
The Atlanta Women’s Foundation’s goal is to support organizations that improve the lives of economically vulnerable women and girls. The absence of economic self-sufficiency is at the heart of critical issues faced by women in our community. The Atlanta Women’s Foundation supports organizations that lift women up and out of poverty by increasing their access to services and opportunities for advancement.
CREW Atlanta is involved with the Atlanta Women’s Foundation through:
- Representation on the AWF Board of Directors
- Representation on the Alumnae Board
- Financial contributions
- Special Events
- Grantmaking Committees
Habitat for Humanity
The Atlanta Women’s Build (AWB) is a grassroots effort led by private individuals – all women – to raise funds that sponsor an Atlanta Habitat for Humanity home. This build will help support a one woman-led household. The AWB house involves women donors and volunteers who build the home, and offers a unique opportunity to highlight the ways Atlanta Habitat empowers women to become homebuyers. CREW Atlanta has been involved with Habitat for Humanity through Atlanta Women’s Build Event for the past three years. This is an amazing event and we can help by supporting the build financially and volunteering.
This year’s CREW Atlanta Habitat Build day will be Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
UCREW University Outreach sessions are hosted by CREW Network chapters utilizing their members, professional commercial real estate women, as role models to:
- Teach college students networking fundamentals
- Offer powerful career resources
- Provide relationship-building opportunities in career development.
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. CREW Network Foundation is committed to bringing more women into commercial real estate by offering programs like CREW Careers and UCREW that educate women and girls about the career opportunities in the industry; supporting CRE higher education and training through college scholarships and internships; and providing mentorships to those new to the industry.
