|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.

|During the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will continue to meet on Zoom. Once it is safe to do so, we will consider having different committee members host meetings at their offices.
|1 to 3 hours/month
|We require a specific amount of “give or get” for all board members.
|We will have an initial intake meeting to go over the roles and responsibilities of the committee and answer any questions you might have. After that, any new members will simply start attending group meetings. Everyone starts on the Host Committee, which works alongside the Real Estate & Building Industry Executive Team. After some time on the Host Committee, an individual may be chosen to serve as Vice Chair. During that year, they will join the Executive Team and shadow the Co-Chairs, whose role they will be taking on the following year.

We unite to create positive, lasting change for people in need. We call it harnessing the power of people working together. And that means everyone — individuals, nonprofits, companies, and government agencies.
