 Where would my money go?

Your generous support will help the Foundation expand the frontiers of real estate research, assist qualified students preparing for productive careers in the real estate field, and increase the ability of both the private and public sectors to meet the real estate needs of the people of Illinois.  The Foundation’s support of advanced real estate knowledge also includes special projects and programs.  For example, the initial funding to establish the Office of Real Estate Research (ORER) at the University of Illinois was provided through grants from the foundation.  Research projects conducted and commissioned by ORER are developing a new understanding of the social, political, and economic issues which affect the real estate related interests of the citizens of Illinois.

Will my contribution be recognized?

The foundation offers several categories of recognition for its contributors. Your contribution in any amount will be credited to the appropriate category, ranging from $100 to $100,000. Gifts, bequests, memorial tributes and endowments to benefit the Foundation are also accepted.

How do I contribute?

It’s as easy as using your credit card.
