Inspiring Hope

The Real Estate Council Foundation is the philanthropic arm of The Real Estate Council. We work to strengthen the community through good works in four key areas: education, housing, job creation and the environment.

Foundation group volunteers

Our high-touch, project-based approach is led by TREC members who identify, review and select the Community Projects we pursue each year. The selected organizations receive funding along with the pro bono professional services of our members.

Since its inception in 1994, The Real Estate Council Foundation has contributed nearly $10 million in grant funds to more than 100 nonprofit community organizations supported by professional services valued at more than $750,000 annually.
