The Linda Hollemon Scholarship Endowment
We are pleased to announce that the CREW Network Foundation Scholarship Endowment has been 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 ongoing growth which enables CREW Network Foundation to provide additional scholarships to female students in commercial real estate programs.
Any individual, corporation, or foundation may make a contribution to the Linda Hollemon Scholarship Endowment. Gifts of any amount may be made outright, pledged over multiple years, or as a planned or estate gift. When donating online, you have the opportunity to enter Linda’s name or the name of any individual you’d like to recognize through the gift.
Scholarship Endowment Founders
For each pledge of $20,000, donors will be recognized as Founders and obtain a seat on the Scholarship Selection Committee. Pledges are required to be fully funded within three years of the initial pledge date. Each $20,000 pledge made to the Linda Hollemon Scholarship Endowment by an individual, corporation, foundation or CREW Network chapter is also added to their cumulative giving level for recognition by CREW Network Foundation.
