Donations will support IREM members affected by the pandemic

[CHICAGO] (July 21, 2020) – IREM Chicago Chapter has established a local COVID-19 Relief Fund through a grant from the IREM Foundation. Our community has felt the economic impact of the global pandemic. Through the COVID-19 Relief Fund, IREM Chicago can provide support to members affected by COVID-19. The IREM Foundation will match donations to the IREM Chicago relief fund, up to $1,000.

IREM Chicago plans to use the donations it receives to provide financial resources to members that are affected by COVID-19 crisis. The funding is intended to be used for members who have been financially impacted by COVID-19, whether by layoff, company cut-backs, illness, or illness of a family member.

“Property management professionals have played a pivotal role in helping the nation remain open and functioning since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in March,” said IREM Chicago 2020 President Angela Aeschliman, CPM®.  “In partnership with the IREM Foundation, we will support our members and their families with funds that will help them manage the challenging days ahead. Our goal is to help members remain financially sound and productive as we advance toward a return to more normal times.”

“Our goal for the COVID-19 Relief Fund is to equip real estate managers, our front line professionals, with the support and resources they need to serve the communities they manage,” says Julie L. Scott, CPM®, IREM Foundation President. “We’re proud to be able to support the community in which IREM Chicago operates, so we can all get through this together.”

IREM Chicago is one of 26 chapters from around the world to establish a relief fund through the IREM Foundation. Donations can be made to the IREM Chicago Relief Fund through the IREM Foundation by visiting Chicago Relief Fund
