CREW Network Foundation Hall of Fame

A giving and recognition program for CREW Network chapters in support of the Linda Hollemon Scholarship Endowment

 

Foundation Hall of Fame

 

CREW Network chapters are dedicated supporters of our Foundation and critical in bringing our mission to life in their markets across the globe. The CREW Network Foundation Hall of Fame is a new giving opportunity launched in 2022 to recognize chapters that support the Linda Hollemon Scholarship Endowment through pledged gifts and advance the Foundation’s mission through career outreach and industry research programs. This is an opportunity for all CREW Network chapters—regardless of size or budget—to participate meaningfully and be recognized for supporting our endowment.

About the scholarship endowment
In 2020, the CREW Network Foundation Scholarship Endowment was renamed to honor CREW Network founder, first president and CEO Linda Hollemon. Linda was instrumental in spearheading the development of CREW Network. Her early leadership and dedication led to the creation of the dynamic and robust association we are today.

Following her retirement as CREW Network CEO in 2005, Linda remained a strong supporter of the Foundation and was inducted as a CREW Visionary in 2007. She passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 18, 2020, and the scholarship endowment was renamed in her honor by the CREW Network board of directors upon recommendation by CREW Network past presidents.

By naming the scholarship endowment in her honor, we recognize her legacy in perpetuity and acknowledge through future generations the fundamental impact of Linda’s leadership. Donations to this endowment fund, first started in 2009, support the long-term growth and impact of scholarships for female students in commercial real estate programs. The Foundation currently grants $5,000 USD (or the CAD equivalent) scholarships to 30 female students annually.
