Our Community and Industry Impact

Members of CREW Northern Virginia (CREW NoVA) seek to make a lasting, positive impact on our local community, far beyond the commercial real estate industry. We donate food, collect clothing, toys, and costumes for women and children, and raise funds for local charities. CREW NoVA members contribute their time and effort to our collective philanthropic efforts:
CREW Network Foundation
Second Story
Shelter House
Women Giving Back
INOVA Children's Hospital


CREW NoVA's I Paid It Forward! campaign was the personal campaign of the 2016 CREW NoVA President to bring awareness and support to the efforts of CREW Network Foundation. The campaign asks members to make an annual donation (every little bit helps!) to CREW Network Foundation, which is the only foundation dedicating its resources solely towards advancing women in the commercial real estate industry—through scholarships, industry research, and career outreach. Help us meet this year’s challenge by reaching at least 50% member participation.

Why CREW NoVA Supports CREW Network Foundation

CREW Network Foundation is the only foundation dedicating its resources solely towards advancing women in the commercial real estate industry. In collaboration with CREW Network, CREW Network Foundation supports the Network’s career outreach agenda, which cultivates women leaders in the industry through participation in a continuum of educational outreach, as well as scholarship and mentoring programs. This continuum introduces female high school students to the commercial real estate industry, while connecting female college students and entry-level career women to the resources, support and network they need to obtain successful careers in the commercial real estate industry.

Your donations support the overall mission of advancing women in the commercial real estate industry:

  • Programs that introduce young girls to the ideas of careers in commercial real estate

  • Scholarships for women seeking educations that lead to careers in commercial real estate

  • Mentoring to support women in the early stages of their careers to encourage retention and success

  • Research that measures the advancement of women in the industry and impacts business practices to insure women have access to the same opportunities as men

  • White papers that address industry and career issues critical to the advancement of women
