Support The James R. Webb American Real Estate Society Foundation
By: Marc Louargand, Saltash Partners LLC
Our foundation plays a critical role in the longevity of ARES. Foundation donors provide the means for young scholars to attend ARES meetings and meet colleagues and senior faculty and professionals. Those scholars will be the future leadership of ARES. International scholars are able to attend annual ARES meetings to present their work and connect with the ARES community with support from the endowed international scholarship created by Arthur Schwartz and Helen Beckett Schwartz.
The foundation also has four endowed doctoral scholarships to provide doctoral candidates the opportunity to
do the same. They were the gifts of Glenn and Jan Mueller, Theron and Susan Nelson, Youguo and Lucy Liang and
Michael and Vicky Seiler. These endowments provide support in perpetuity alongside the annual giving of Fellows,
Distinguished Fellows and Benefactors. All foundation donors are listed in all ARES publications and are recognized at our annual meetings. The Foundation Board of Directors would like to thank all who have supported its work to date.
Please continue your support or join us in 2013. Holding our meeting in Hawaii presents a greater challenge for funding attendees. Young scholars are the lifeblood of ARES. The best way to show them the benefits of membership is through attendance at our meetings. The collegiality, intellectual stimulation and fun they discover will keep them active in the group and ensure ARES’ growth and existence. Your tax deductible donation is a critical part of ARES’ future. If you are currently a Fellow please consider becoming a Distinguished Fellow or Benefactor. Fellows’ donations remain at $250 while Distinguished Fellows give $500 and Benefactors give $1,000. Donors of doctoral scholarships make gifts of $10,000. Please keep the foundation in mind when doing any estate planning as well. Endowing a scholarship is a great way to stay on the ARES masthead.
