Real Estate 101


Real estate is typically the second largest budget item for nonprofits, so it’s a high priority for senior staff and board of directors. To support these nonprofits, TREC launched Real Estate 101, a series of five two-hour workshops that provid an introductory overview to the complexities of real estate for nonprofits.
