  • Raise funds for Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore and volunteer with food drives.

  • Support with monetary donations and volunteer for Girls on the Run.

CREW Network Foundation

We are proud to support CREW Network Foundation, the only charitable foundation solely dedicated to advancing women in the commercial real estate industry. CREW Network Foundation is committed to bringing more women into commercial real estate by offering programs like CREW Careers and UCREW that educate women and girls about the career opportunities in the industry; supporting CRE higher education and training through college scholarships and internships; and providing mentorships to those new to the industry.
