Making A Difference

With your help, the SIOR Foundation can achieve its long-term endowment goal of $10 million to make an even greater impact through innovative and visionary funding programs. As an individual donor, corporate or educational partner, you can help the Foundation make a difference…

for students by offering financial assistance and educational incentives for those deserving of help and interested in our field of study;

for SIOR members by providing financial assistance, educational tools for training, technology,  and research;

for the community, through our efforts to promote wider reach and understanding of the commercial real estate field.

     SIOR Foundation Trustees invite you to become involved in the special partnership that exists between the SIOR Foundation and commercial real estate professionals. Your tax-deductible contribution will be used to increase the impact of the Foundation and develop exciting new projects.

    As an SIOR Foundation contributor, you will receive updates on Foundation activities and educational opportunities. In addition, you will be recognized for your donation in Professional Report, the Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS® quarterly magazine.
