Cumulative Life Giving Eligibility
Monetary donations made directly to the CREW Network Foundation by an individual are calculated into one’s cumulative life giving. If an individual’s donation is matched by an organization, the individual also receives lifetime giving credit for the amount of the matching donation.
Unfulfilled pledges are not included; only the donations that have been actually collected are included in the individual’s cumulative lifetime giving.
Contributions for which an individual receives a benefit are excluded from cumulative lifetime giving. This includes raffle ticket purchases, auction item purchases, and any other contributions for which the individual receives a tangible benefit. Food and beverages, and attendance at CREW Network Foundation events are not included as benefits.
Contributions of items and services for chapter auctions or chapter raffles are excluded from cumulative life giving calculations as it is not practically possible for CREW Network Foundation to estimate the value of items donated.
The CREW Network Foundation Women of Vision program was established in 2007 to recognize donors for their cumulative giving to CREW Network Foundation. Participation in the program acknowledges an individual’s commitment to support CREW Network Foundation’s mission – to advance women in the commercial real estate industry.
When individuals reach $10,000 in cumulative lifetime giving, they are inducted into the CREW Network Foundation Women of Vision program. Each inductee is awarded an exclusive, numbered Women of Vision gold lapel pin. Each subsequent $10,000 in cumulative lifetime giving is recognized with the addition of a diamond to the individual’s pin.
