CBRE Cares Chicago leads employees in philanthropic efforts at the local level in a way that both represents and serves the ideals of the CBRE Chicago community. The Chapter’s fundraising efforts include a variety of events such as the annual Charity Bash. The Chapter has donated approximately $1M since its inception in 2008.
Goals and Objectives
Facilitate disbursement of donations through the CBRE Cares Foundation

Develop and implement programs to support the charitable needs of our community
We continue to support local organizations included Cradles to Crayons, William F. Finkl Academy and Bounce Children’s Foundation.
Host fundraising events efforts to support our local philanthropic programs
Opportunities to get involved with philanthropic programs and events will be announced throughout the year. We will also help advertise philanthropies and fundraisers our CBRE employees are passionate about.
