IREM Foundation launches COVID-19 Relief Fund on #GivingTuesdayNow

CHICAGO (May 5, 2020) – Like many people around the world, property managers have felt the economic impact of the global pandemic. To support real estate managers and their communities, the IREM Foundation is launching a COVID-19 Relief Fund on #GivingTuesdayNow.

The IREM Foundation has provided a grant of $25,000 to create relief funds in communities affected by COVID-19. The fund will drive support to local communities, by way of matching funds to local IREM chapters. The Foundation will match donations to community funds up to $1,000 per IREM chapter. Contributions can also be made directly to the worldwide relief fund. The money raised through the COVID-19 Relief Fund may be used in the following ways to support real estate managers and their local community:

  • Relief funds for members who have been financially impacted by COVID-19, whether due to layoff, illness, or illness of a family member
  • Relief funds for small businesses directly impacted by COVID-19
  • Relief funds for tenants or residents directly impacted by COVID-19
  • Relief funds for local non-profits directly impacted by COVID-19
  • Any other charitable purpose related to COVID-19 
  • Member dues support

“Real estate managers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. They manage the buildings where we live, shop and work, and they're committed to making sure we'll be able to return to work and leisure safely,” says Julie L. Scott, CPM®, IREM Foundation President. “The goal of the Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund is to equip these front line professionals with the support and resources they need to serve the communities they manage.”

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of unity in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The campaign is an effort from GivingTuesday – a global generosity movement dedicated to unleashing the power of people to transform their communities and the world.
