27 IREM® chapters establish local COVID Relief Funds through the IREM Foundation

CHICAGO (June 3, 2020) – The IREM Foundation established a COVID-19 Relief Fund in May to support real estate managers and their local communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through a grant of $25,000, IREM chapters were invited to create their own relief funds for matching donations from the IREM Foundation.

The IREM Foundation will match donations to chapters, up to $1,000 per chapter. Since the launch of the relief fund on May 5, IREM chapters around the globe have created their own local funds and are in the process of accepting donations. IREM chapters can determine how donations will be distributed, with many focusing on giving back to local businesses and the communities at large.

Current relief fund efforts on behalf of chapters include supporting local charitable efforts such as homelessness and food security and establishing dues relief programs for members who may have lost their jobs. Participating chapters are listed below:

  • IREM North Carolina Piedmont
  • IREM Western North Carolina
  • IREM Michigan

“The IREM community across the globe never fails to come together in times of crisis,” says Julie L. Scott, CPM®, IREM Foundation President. “Our goal with the COVID-19 Relief Fund is to equip real estate managers with the support and resources they need to serve their communities. We’re very proud of the work our chapters are doing to help us all get through this together.”

“Western Washington was the epicenter of the pandemic outbreak in the U.S. Our teams have been fighting this since day one. We give annually to organizations which support people along the homelessness spectrum and felt that partnering with the IREM Foundation was a perfect fit,” comments Drew Hicks, CPM®, Chapter President, IREM Western Washington. “It allows us to make an even bigger impact and gives our members a vehicle to give back.”

Donations can be made to the COVID-19 Relief Fund through the IREM Foundation. Donors can select a specific chapter for their donation or direct their donation to the worldwide relief fund.
