Position Real Estate & Building Industry Host Committee

The Real Estate & Building Industry Breakfast Host Committee serves as a leadership and advisory body for United Way’s partnerships within the industry. United Way relies on all committee members as advocates, fundraisers, and strategic thinkers in the continuous advancement of the annual Breakfast.

Committee members share in the vision to bring together those who are building this city and shaping our skyline around an opportunity to fortify Boston’s foundation – through United Way. Through the work of this committee, the industry has invested over $52 million in United Way’s work over the last 28 years – impacting more than 395,000 families in that time.

The Host Committee meets throughout the planning year, with opportunities to learn more and contribute further to United Way’s work throughout. Committee members are responsible for inviting all major Commercial Real Estate firms to sponsor or donate to the Breakfast.
