Dear SIOR Friends,
On behalf of the SIOR Foundation Board of Trustees, I want to thank all of our Annual Appeal and Phonathon donors whose
generous contributions already total over $204,000 and are still coming in! Your continued support enables the Foundation
to carry out its mission to promote and support initiatives that expand, educate, and enhance the commercial real estate
Another “Great Escape Giveaway” in Scottsdale
The SIOR Foundation will hold another Great Escape Giveaway this year at the 2015 SIOR Spring World conference in
Scottsdale, AZ. With the support of SIOR Chapters and sponsors, we will be giving away several all-expense paid vacations.
We’ll begin ticket sales in advance this year, so you may participate and win, even if you are unable to attend the Conference.
Look for information in your e-mail!
New Local Chapter Programs
Several local chapters have begun new initiatives that we want to share with all of you.
San Antonio/South Texas and the St. Louis chapters have joined with their local universities to create new scholarships that
are granted to deserving students focusing on commercial real estate careers.
The Florida Chapter has created a Real Estate Challenge Grant that will team up master of real estate students with local
developers to solve real world problems. This program is a win-win for both the developer and the students who gain
experience and knowledge of the commercial real estate industry.
The Foundation is excited to be able to provide matching grants to these exciting initiatives.
