Basis Impact Group Foundation

Mission Statement

Basis Impact Group Foundation seeks to inspire the next generation of minorities and women in commercial real estate by exposing underrepresented youth to the career and wealth building opportunities that exist in the industry. Through its partnership with numerous professional real estate organizations, the Foundation’s educational program helps hundreds of young people access the potential of this essential but often exclusive field.

History

“When you grow up with an imagination, everything is possible.”
Since Basis Investment Group’s founding in 2009, CEO Tammy K. Jones envisioned leveraging the Basis platform in order to give back to communities in which the firm invests while uplifting young women and communities of color. Today, that vision has become a reality through the formation of the Basis Impact Group (BIG) Foundation.

Our Initiatives

The REEC Nexus CRE Summer Intensive is an educational program that exposes thousands of women and people of color to the Commercial Real Estate industry and helps them find their way into a field that has historically excluded them.

In partnership with several national Real Estate organizations: REEC,  NAIOP, SIOR, PREA & ULI, and a growing list of universities such as, MIT, Cornell, University of Miami, Georgia State, among others, the REEC Nexus CRE Summer Intensive is creating a robust pipeline of diverse talent, that will transform our industry!

When you dream BIG, you can have an impact:
  • We are proud to have partnered to expose 300+ students of color to Commercial Real Estate
  • 50% of students admitted to the program come from an under resourced background
  • Program alumni represent all 4 corners of the United States

 

The Gran Fondo is our way of pedaling with purpose! Through this cycling challenge, the Basis Team, along with friends, family and colleagues, unite to raise funding for the BIG Foundation. This year the Gran Fondo takes place on September 8th. Join us in empowering teens to work and invest in Commercial Real Estate!

“You can’t be it, if you can’t see it” so let’s break barriers together!
