To lead employees in philanthropic efforts at the local level in a way that both represents and serves the ideals of the CBRE Chicago community. The Committee’s main source of fundraising is its Charity Bash held every fall, which is open to CBRE employees, clients and colleagues. Through funds raised from our annual charity bash the philanthropy committee has donated nearly $450,000 since the committee’s inception in 2008.
2016 promises to be a great year for the CBRE Chicago Philanthropic Committee and its charitable efforts. The Committee has just completed its strategic session and looks forward to develop new ways to grow benevolent support for the CBRE Chicago Community. Thank you to continued members and welcome to the new members of the 2016 Philanthropic Committee!
