At the heart of our giving philosophy is a belief in the power of partnerships – at the employee, client, and community level.

ARA is committed to being a catalyst to effect positive change in our communities, both local and nationwide. Involvement to effect change demands more than just giving. Our dedication to lending our knowledge, experience, spirit of collaboration, and the time and talents of our employee volunteers supports community and national programs and partnerships that can make a difference.

Charitable Giving Grant Recipients

In keeping with ARA’s mission of effecting positive change in our communities both local and nationwide, ARA is proud to share our recent grant recipients. Grants from the ARA Charitable Foundation fostered healthy development of children and youth and helped to strengthen families, as well as provided emergency relief to those in crisis.  Funds also helped the most disadvantaged by providing housing, health care, outreach, and social services to homeless and poverty-stricken individuals and families, as well as feeding those suffering from food insecurity. At the heart of the organizations we support is respect and dignity for those they serve.  ARA embodies these values and is committed to improving the lives of those in need.  

Community Outreach

Throughout the year, ARA is involved in and supports a wide variety of organizations that seek to foster dynamic change and empower action promoting education, healthcare, diversity, and economic development. We are dedicated to lending a helping hand where needed in an effort to lift up others. In addition to our charitable giving, ARA actively encourages its employees to support individual philanthropic interests and, over the years, our combined commitment to supporting individuals, families, and communities around the world has contributed to generating change in some of the most challenged areas. Corporate responsibility and active involvement is a key component of ARA’s philosophy and is a reflection of our culture, our values, and the way we do business.  ARA’s long standing Matching Gifts Program enables its employees to make their financial contributions go even further. 

As part of its COVID-19 response, ARA quadrupled its match to organizations that provide essential services and doubled its matching gift overall, further encouraging employees to support their communities.

A Focus on Diversity and Inclusion

ARA aligns with the PREA Foundation's aim to widen the circle of opportunity. ARA is a Founding Patron donor to the foundation, which furthers our commitment to diversity as we believe in the power of diverse perspectives and backgrounds and embraces a dynamic mix of ideas and talents that create an inclusive work environment.

Support from the PREA Foundation established the first-ever SEO Real Estate Track, which is dedicated to increasing diverse employment in the CRE industry. This initiative has developed real estate specific training content, hosts real estate related clinics and events, and enlists partners to provide summer internships for program participants.
