Overview

Self-reported by organization

SCHOLARSHIPS: The CCIM Foundation has been granting scholarships to deserving students and real estate professionals since 1988. Our scholarship programs are designed to encourage and assist professionals pursuing the CCIM designation and to promote high educational standards. Our programs enable commendable professionals in the real estate industry to experience the CCIM Institute's education first hand.  In 2014, the Foundation awarded over 100 scholarships through our Named Endowed Scholarship Program and CCIM Course Scholarship Program to qualified students and practitioners.

REAL ESTATE GIFTING: Most real estate gifts are rejected by receiving organizations due to perceived risks, and ultimately the difficulty in converting to cash. In response to this challenge, the CCIM Foundation’s Real Estate Gifting Program was established to successfully complete transactions from start-to-finish that involve gifts of real estate.

The CCIM Foundation can provide services for any non-profit, charity or fellow foundation that is qualified to receive real estate gifts. Alternatively, the CCIM Foundation can be a recipient of real estate gifts in their entirety, or on a shared basis with other qualified organizations. Gift options include: Outright Donations; Bargain Sales; Charitable Remainder Trusts; and Bequests. The Foundation also helps deliver real estate gifting seminars to CCIM Institute members and other interested parties.
