Philanthropy

CREW Pittsburgh Community Action is committed to delivering CREW Network’s mission within our local communities through education, community service, and personal impact.

In 2013, we introduced a roundtable forum to introduce college students and women looking to change careers into opportunities within the commercial real estate industry. Networking, relationship building, and career development skills are the focal points of these half-day events.

Over the years the Community Action Committee has presented career panels at Chatham College, Point Park University, University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne University, La Roche University, and Pittsburgh Technical College. CREW Pittsburgh also has plans to present at Robert Morris University, Carlow College, and Carnegie Mellon University.

CREW Pittsburgh seeks to make a lasting, positive impact on our local community, far beyond the commercial real estate industry. CREW Pittsburgh members contribute their time and effort to our collective philanthropic efforts.

Satchels of Caring Foundation

The Foundation began as part of CREW Pittsburgh’s community action efforts in 2003, and in 2010 became their own charitable organization. The Foundation collects donations of fabric and other materials that are crafted into tote-style satchel bags by volunteers. Then each one-of-a-kind bag is filled with personal care items and messages of hope for people who are undergoing cancer treatments; women, men and young adults alike. The Satchels are distributed free-of-charge regionally through hospitals, doctor’s offices, clinics, and personal requests. For more information about the organization and the great work they are doing in our community, please visit their website at www.satchelsofcaring.org.
