It’s March Madness ICSC Foundation-Style!

AlexMcDonaldMarch is synonymous with one thing, college basketball. The ICSC Foundation is getting in on the madness and providing you with an easy way to show your school pride while helping the next generation of industry leaders.

The ICSC Foundation, led by foundation director John Crossman CCIM, CRX, has made huge strides in their Undergraduate Real Estate Award Campaign. The ICSC Foundation partners with 28 universities in North America to give a deserving real estate student a $2,000 scholarship and ICSC student membership annually.

To ensure this program will continue for years to come, the ICSC Foundation has set out to raise $25,000 for each school’s scholarship fund. The results have been overwhelming: $386,417 collected in cash and pledges since the beginning of the year. Eight of the university’s funds have been endowed and in some cases the goal has been doubled and tripled. The math is easy – the more money we raise, the more scholarships we award.

Congratulations on the big win alums from the following universities:

Villanova University $75,000 Kieran P. Quinn Undergraduate Real Estate Award
University of Central Florida $56,916 George Livingston Undergraduate Real Estate Award
Florida International University $50,750 Rufrano Family Undergraduate Real Estate Award
University of Florida $47,500 Maury L. Carter & Associates Undergraduate Real Estate Award
Florida A&M $29,142 Glenn and Linda Sue Miller Undergraduate Real Estate Award
Florida State University $27,899 Dean Gatzlaff Undergraduate Real Estate Award
Southern Methodist University $25,125 Wilson/Boyd Undergraduate Real Estate Award
Florida Southern College $25,000 Charles H. Jenkins Undergraduate Real Estate Award

That leaves 20 schools to go. Some campaigns have a strong start and you can help make it a slam dunk. There are still plenty of alums who should be shameful about more than just their brackets.
