Learn Real Estate Basics

Real estate is typically the second largest budget item for a nonprofit organization, making it a high priority for the senior staff and board of directors. Real Estate 101 for Nonprofits is a five-part series of 1.5-hour-long workshops designed to educate nonprofit leaders on the nuances of the real estate development process.

PLEASE NOTE: We have modified the 2020 course to address the challenges nonprofits are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please contact TREC Community Fund Coordinator Kawanise Mims with any questions.
