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. Since its inception in 1994, The Real Estate Council Foundation has contributed more than $12.5 million in grant funds to more than 150 nonprofit community organizations supported by pro-bono professional services work from our members and their companies.

Please contact TREC Foundation Coordinator Kennedy Bower at kbower@recouncil.com or 214.692.3606 with any questions.
