Ways to Support the NAIOP Research Foundation

There are a number of ways that your financial support can help to underwrite the important work of the Research Foundation, including special occasion giving, memorial gifts, planned gifts and annual donations.

Income raised through the Sustainers Fund helps the Research Foundation continue to fulfill its mission by providing a sustainable and flexible source of unrestricted income to be allocated where it is needed most. Funds raised allow the Foundation to be more responsive to industry-related issues that arise throughout the year.

Tribute gifts support the mission of the Research Foundation and allow individuals, groups and organizations to make memorial gifts to remember someone who has passed away, honor a living person, or mark a significant life event. Notification of a gift received, along with the donor’s name, is sent to the person or persons being honored or memorialized. Those being honored or memorialized are recognized in Foundation materials and online.

Planned gifts are designed to help you meet your financial and charitable goals while supporting the Research Foundation in the long term. By making a planned gift, you can make a lasting impact by expanding the Research Foundation’s capacity to address the industry’s most pressing issues through its cutting-edge research, education and outreach activities. You can provide significant support through a gift that costs nothing in your lifetime through a charitable bequest in your will.    

The Legacy Society recognizes those individuals who have made estate plans to benefit the Research Foundation.

Thank you to our founding Legacy Society members, Ron Rayevich and Joan Woodard, for their commitment to the Foundation’s future.

Please contact Bennett Gray for more information on these and other ways to support the Foundation.
