Annual Phonathon Was A Ringing Success!

On Nov. 5, SIOR Foundation Trustees gathered in the Arizona desert for the annual Phonathon, asking SIOR members to pledge their support to the SIOR Foundation. Preliminary numbers show the Foundation has raised nearly $200,000, but the opportunity to donate is not over yet! There's still time to make a tax-deductible contribution by the end of the year to help the Foundation continue its mission to Educate, Enhance, and Expand the Commercial Real Estate industry.
The Foundation welcomes donations online, or by calling Corrine Nowak, SIOR Foundation Director at 202.449.8208.
